Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Must Play Courses -

When play­ers get tight over im­por­tant putts, a com­mon de­nom­i­na­tor is time. They grind over the process, spend­ing more sec­onds on their read and setup. This usu­ally pro­duces ten­sion, and ten­sion tends to pro­duce a short, tight back­swing. From there, they have to surge into the ball to get it to the hole – which makes dis­tance con­trol re­ally hard. To avoid this, keep your process con­sis­tent. That means do­ing the same stuff on the 18th green as you did on the fourth and the fifth, and so on. Same rou­tine. Same amount of time. If you treat ev­ery putt with the same amount of care, you’ll stay loose and give it your best stroke.
