Do you three-putt a few times during your round of golf? Are you the one who hopes your playing partner gives you that 3-footer? No such luck in a tournament. Try this exercise: place yourself on the green without any club (including the putter) and try to put the ball in a hole that is 25 feet away from you. Well, I guess you will face that hole and toss the ball underhand toward the hole. So why don't you putt that way?
Practice tip! You should practice 90% of the time from around 10 feet from the hole. The statistic show that we do 50% of our putts from inside of 6 feet. Now for the lag putt just concentrate on the speed and distance. Almost all the great putters say that speed is the more important in putting.
