Steve Stricker would have made an additional 2.3 million dollars this past year if he holed 1 more putt each event that he played.
That is staggering. Can you imagine that? 2.3 million dollars MORE if he had made just one more putt in each event he played.
That is the importance of putting. How much would you work on your putting if that was the payoff?
Take a look at the following chart. It shows how much more money each player would have made if they made one additional putt each event that they played in.
|Charles Howell III||1,570,129|
|Davis Love III||1,001,572|

How much of a difference would one more putt per round make for you?
