Alex Getelman likes to stay active when he is not working as a project manager and consultant. Favoring the game of golf, Alex Getelman plays as often as he can.

Putting is a crucial part of golf. A poor short game can ruin a good round quickly. Here is some useful putting advice to put into practice.

Learn how to read your putts. According to a study sponsored by Golf Magazine, 65 percent of golfers underread the break on their putts. You need to judge distances from the side of the ball rather than behind, and walk off the distance from the ball to the hole by drawing an imaginary line with your club at the speed you want the putt to go.

Keep a fairly loose grip on the club, allowing it to swing naturally without compromising your control over the head. Practice as often as possible to get comfortable with your new technique.

When he is not working, Alex Getelman stays active in a number of sports to maintain his fitness, including running. If you would like to do the same but are just starting out, keep these tips in mind.

1. Purchase a good pair of running shoes. The shoes should offer both comfort and longevity. Consider visiting a specialty store to get yourself fitted for the right pair.

2. Think about joining a running group to gain access to more information and share the experience with others.

3. Always take the time to warm up before each run. Start with a brisk walk into a slow jog to get your body ready. You then can pick up the pace.

4. Set challenging yet realistic goals for yourself. Break down these goals into milestones to help keep you motivated.
