WIN­NING SHOT #4

THE HOLED 8FT PUTT

Golf Australia - - A GOLFING LIFE -

There is no one tougher to play against than the golfer who con­tin­u­ally holes out from in­side eight feet. Mak­ing putts from this range means you are al­ways get­ting the most out of the hole, whether that’s res­cu­ing halves from holes you’ve played poorly, or se­cur­ing wins on ones you’ve played well. The na­ture of match­play means these putts are of­ten played out in pres­sure sit­u­a­tions. The key, then, to hol­ing out at vi­tal times lies in mak­ing short putts rou­tine. Con­sis­tency of ap­proach gives you a con­sis­tency of ac­tion, im­prov­ing con­fi­dence through fa­mil­iar­ity. It also stops you adding pres­sure to a sit­u­a­tion by tak­ing more time. Here is a sim­ple four-step process you can use to help make hol­ing make­able putts a mat­ter of rou­tine.
