Fascinating Correlation Between Eye Position and AIM

Our question for today is “Do your aim and eye position directly correlate to each other?”  This isn’t a yes or no answer.  Everybody has different perceptions.

With that being said, the most obvious correlation is with eye dominance.  Left eye dominant players “tend to leave the shaft more forward and right eye dominant players tend to lean the shaft back.” 

When we see aim bias, there tends to be a lot of head rotation.  The is especially true with right-handed golfers that exhibit left aim bias. 

When it comes to putter length correlation, “longer aims more right and shorter aims more left.”  This is because the longer the putter is, the steeper the eye plane becomes. 

Other factors include putter shape, weight, perception of closed vs. open, the list goes on. 

In the end, there are a lot of factors that go into understanding the relationship between eye position and putter aim.  That’s why it’s so important for players to get properly fit for a putter.
