HOLE THE PUTT
MY READ Don’t overthink the mechanics of the stroke. The most important thing is to start looking at the speed and line of the putt. I’ll stalk it from all angles, find the midpoint where the putt breaks and look for a ball mark or a specific piece of grass at the midpoint, which I either want to roll the ball over, next to or around. When I’m confident on my line, I’ll take my address and visualise the arc I want to see. I’ll let that image occupy my mind until my mind goes blank. Only then will I feel comfortable over the ball and in my preparation.
