‘Get the pace right to avoid costly three-putts’

Golf World (UK) - - Tour Tips -

It’s very rare to see a pro­fes­sional golfer mis­judge the pace of a putt, but am­a­teurs do it all the time. Think back to the last time you three-putted and I bet it was be­cause your dis­tance con­trol was off on the ap­proach putt rather than a bad read. On longer putts, the most im­por­tant part of the line/ dis­tance equa­tion is the pace you im­part on the ball. Think about it. Un­less you are be­yond hope­less when it comes to read­ing the line, if you get the dis­tance cor­rect on a long putt you’re never go­ing to fin­ish too far from the cup. But even if you get the line spot on, you can still have a fairly lengthy sec­ond putt if you get the pace all wrong on the first.
