How to Putt on Fast Greens

Tiger Woods is very good at putting on fast greens. Today, let's see how he putts on those greens.

Tiger said that the key to putting well on fast greens is grip pressure.

On fast greens, he holds the grip lighter and keeps that grip pressure throughout the swing.

He said amateurs hold it too tightly or tighten the grip pressure during the swing.

Tiger changes his grip pressure depending on the green. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being tightest, his grip is around 5 on regular greens. But on fast greens, his grip is no more than 3.

Most pros' grip is around 3 on regular greens. So Tiger holds it little tighter than normal.

If you hold it lighter, it will make it easier to feel the weight of the putter head. The light grip pressure is also good for distance control.

If you struggle with long putts, try lighter grip pressure.
