Thinking about your putting stroke while attempting to make a 4-foot par putt is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos.
On the course,
DO NOT THINK ABOUT YOUR PUTTING STROKE…unless you want to 3-putt often.
Focus your attention on a helpful attribute such as the target, sensing the putt’s distance, or seeing the ball go in the hole.
