To be a good putter, setup is everything.  One of the critical components of a good setup in putting is the shoulders.  The shoulders determine the putter head path.  If you open your shoulders, the putter will move left and the opposite happens when you close your shoulders.  Here Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf demonstrate what it takes to have a perfect setup for a consistent putting stroke. Thanks for sharing guys!

PGA Golf Professionals Piers Ward and Andy Proudman talk about how to set-up into a great position for putting.

Width of the Stance.

A wide stance will help stabilize the lower body.  Obviously the less body motion in a putting stroke the better.

Grip.

By moving the hands closer together than a conventional golf grip is allows the shoulders to be more level with the ground.  This in turn encourages a pendulum stroke with the fulcrum just below the neck.

Shoulders.

Ideally, you want your shoulders to be square to the target line.  Putter head path is determined by shoulder alignment, so the more square the shoulders are, the more square the putting stroke will be!

Forearms.

Like the shoulders, the forearms should be square to the target line.  This is the most overlooked aspect of the putting setup.  Get a friend to lay an alignment rod both across the shoulders and then the forearms to make sure they are in alignment!
