Achieving a markedly improved putting stroke might not be as challenging as you once thought.

Below, Golf Monthly Top 25 Coach and Callaway/Odyssey Ambassador John Jacobs takes you through some keys to honing your putting stroke.

He discusses the importance of ball speed around the green and the length of backswing, and shows you how to build more rhythm, create more fluidity and improve your allignment.

John shows you a feel drill, where you start with a short putt and gradually increase the length, and gives some allignment tips.
