I like to prac­tise long putting, from 30 to 60 feet. I think this is where you de­velop feel. And when you get good at th­ese long putts, it makes the medium-range putts feel mak­able. For me, I ex­pect to make ev­ery­thing from inside 15 feet. I’m not go­ing to make all of them, but this is where I’ve im­proved my putting the most. Don’t worry about hav­ing the read wrong. That’s go­ing to hap­pen ev­ery once in a while. Be­lieve you’ve picked the right line. Then, if you can put a con­fi­dent stroke on the ball and start it on that line, it’s go­ing to have a great chance to drop. That’s what I’ve learned. I’ve got­ten good at this rou­tine, and it’s made me a much bet­ter put­ter.
