  • Ugh, the lip-out!

    Interesting putting development in my game. Normally my putter is very strong, but on Saturday I had about 5 lip-outs and 2 more yesterday, from both sides of the hole. All have been within 2-4' of the hole.

    I could go a whole month without a single lip-out, so what's going on here?

    Could just be bad luck but Maybe check that your eyes are in the normal place over the ball.

      Loss of confidence leads to self-doubt and negative thoughts.

      Go to the putting green and hit 50 short putts in a row from different angles. Start from 2 feet and then move to 4 feet. Miss a putt? Start over.

      I have two thoughts for short putts after I have checked the alignment, cleaned the ball, etc....."Hold the triangle and rock the shoulders"

          Canít lip out if you arenít getting the ball to the hole so thatís a good sign that you are consistently getting ball to hole (one of my weaknesses).

              Lipping out from 2-4 feet youre likely putting it too firm and or not properly lined up to hit centre cup.

              If you were lipping out 10-30fters thats a diff story. Thats just luck sometimes mate. (Been story of my life lately. Cant get a putt to drop to save my life)

                Nuthin worse than the 360 reverse lip-out----had one of those a few weeks ago
                Every great idea starts out as a blasphemy

                  I have seen more lip-out this year than before. I could only wonder if it is because some people leave the pin in the hole and when they retrieve their ball they damage the hole itself.
                  If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.
