TELL YOUR­SELF FIN­ISH IT OFF!

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best - — DR RICHARD COOP

To make short putts, prac­tise com­mit­ting to your tar­get. Try this drill: (1) Find a flat two-footer on the prac­tice green, and stick a tee in the far edge of the cup. (2) Ad­dress the ball, and aim your put­ter­face at the tee. Be very pre­cise. Even have a friend check it. (3) Af­ter a while, take the tee away and pick a tar­get, like a blade of grass, on the back of the cup. Stroke to that spot. On the course, tell your­self some­thing pos­i­tive, like Fin­ish it off!
