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?

Preparing for the anchor ban, Tim Clark practices sidesaddle putting.
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — Tim Clark is one of the players most likely to be affected by the USGA’s upcoming ban on anchored putting, and not just because he’s been using such a stroke for almost 20 years.
Clark said that while he’s obviously aware of the upcoming ban, he’s still a long way from deciding what method he will employ.
“I’ve tinkered around with a handful of techniques, but I haven’t really looked into it much further” Clark said. “I don’t have a clear idea yet of what I’m going to do.”
