Stop Thinking About Your Putts

The one most important shot in all of golf is the putt.

It should be the easiest of them all, I mean the hole really isn't that far away. But in the grand scheme of things it can make, or all too often break your score.

Putting has always come easily to me. The most common mistake I see other golfers make is over analyzing their putts.

Once you know the basic fundamentals of putting (keep your shoulders stable, swing smooth, head over ball etc)the rest comes down to making the stroke second nature.

Aaron Baddeley once compared his putting style to throwing a ball. When you throw, you don't analyze how your arm is bent or at what point you have to release the ball, you just throw.

That's how he thinks it should be with putting, and I agree. It's the same reason people recommend you never change your putter, because you have to develop a real understanding of how your putts behave.

It means that rather than trying to guess how hard to putt the ball or exactly where to aim, you'll be able to just 'feel'.

Here's a unique little drill you probably haven't tried that will help with developing this feel:

Putt with your eyes closed Set yourself a distance, then close your eyes and putt, and see how close you get to your target.

In time and with practice you will start to understand exactly how hard to hit the ball to get it a certain distance. You won't have to worry about how far to move the club back or anything, you will just know (like throwing).

There are a few other things to consider in putting like slope, break, softness of the green etc. Here's what I think:

Once you have decided your line, stick with it, don't go and double check from different angles. That just creates doubting thoughts into your head, and you don't want them when you're putting.

Trust your first decision, it will usually be right.
