Time to toe it

Home

On downhill putts on slick greens, you want to just get the ball started on the line. The answer? Toe it.

On downhill putts on slick greens, you want to just get the ball started on the line. This is one time when you do not want a solid hit. Instead, place your putter behind the ball so you will tap it on the toe of the putter. Make a short backswing and just let the putter reach the ball. The ball will come off the club slowly and trickle to the hole.
