When it comes to putting I think as amateurs we often don’t trust our instincts. When I’m putting poorly my speed is off. But what happens is that I will take some practice strokes that feel right, but when it’s time to actually putt, I won’t trust my initial practice strokes and I’ll either hit it harder than I need to or not give it enough juice.
Today I set out to reproduce my practice strokes. And my speed was pretty much right on all day. I think though this is one of those habits that just needs time. It takes time to trust your instincts. At least for me it does. But I think in the long run this will be a key to reaching scratch.
