Whether hitting a distance wedge, pitch shot, chip shot, or putt - you need a consistent stroke. One way to ensure a consistent stroke is to ensure an even tempo. An easy way for you to work on your tempo with these shots is to make sure your backswing and finish are equal distance from the ball. This means however far back you take your stoke that is how far through you should swing into your finish. Try it with your put first using a coin or a tee to mark how far back from the ball you intend to swing the putter head, then mark a spot of equal distance from the ball to the finish. Practice making the stroke between these two points and soon you will be able to identify if you are helping or controlling the stroke and get into a good consistent rhythm.
