Standing over those nerve rattling 3 footers can often do more harm than good. When reading the green, don’t over think the line. Usually our first ‘instinct’ is the correct line and then we talk ourselves out of the right choice. Also, spending less time over the ball means less time for doubt and tension to creep into our minds. Commit and go!
