Hole-out without fear
Holing short putts is critical if you're to compile a good round; it can save a poor score and turn an average one into a competitive total. The pros on TV make it look easy, but even they struggle, so there's no need to panic if you're having difficulties from six feet and in.
Confidence is a key factor, so here's a top tip for you to work with on the putting green, one that helps you to stop looking for the ball, which is a common fault.
When you're worried about the result it's understandable that you might look where the ball is heading almost before you've even hit it. So, try putting a marker underneath the ball and keep focused on that after you've hit the ball. This will help maintain stability in your technique.
There are plenty of tips out there to help putting, but this drill is simple and can work wonders. Give it a go and hopefully you'll reap the rewards.
