As we get older more putts are missed through poor alignment.

Here are some ideas to try

• Line up the putter head first. Take up your stance after the putter head is aligned. The way you place your hands on your putter’s grip will stabilize the club, and influence your ability to deliver a square face at impact.

As we age one eye can become weaker than the other

Experiment by closing each eye in turn to work out which eye works best for you.

Check that your shoulders are square to the line. Choose a spot on your chosen line and aim for it.

Practice, practice, practice.
