The secret to holing those tricky short putts is to use a perfect pendulum stroke. That means rocking the putter back and forth from the shoulders like the pendulum on a clock and taking the wrists out of the action.
A great way to learn to keep your hands quiet when you practice is to set-up to the putt without your putter but clasp your hands palms together instead. Let the arms hang down straight with no elbow bend. Now just simply practice rocking the shoulders back and forth and let the hands swing freely and effortlessly...1, 2, 3!
Transfer this same free-flowing pendulum movement to your putting stroke and you'll soon be knocking in your short putts.
