QA 37: What’s “Exhibit Balance” for Putts?
As I launch a putt, I push off from my again foot in order that after launch I’m balanced on my entrance foot. I usually freeze there for a couple of seconds, then swing my again foot ahead and proceed towards the outlet. Is that a foot fault?
It is onerous to say. Your group should make a judgment name. To reveal “full management of steadiness” the participant should carry out some motion that breaks up the stream of motion towards the goal after launch, earlier than continuing towards the goal. Some examples of actions that reveal steadiness is likely to be: (1) a clear pause and show of steadiness, (2) placement of the again foot on the bottom behind the mark, or (3) retrieval of the marker disc. The important thing to all of these is to indicate steadiness and management of your physique behind the mark earlier than shifting ahead. The perfect plan of action is to depart no room for doubt, which is straightforward to do if you’re certainly in charge of your physique after you have launched the putt.
