When you’re faced with a long putt or a long chip, there’s one simple thing you can do that will dramatically improve your score: watch the ball roll past the hole. Instead of looking away in disgust, use the opportunity to see the ball react to help you get a better feel for what the come-backer is going to do.

It may sound obvious, but all too often, amateur golfers let easy scoring opportunities slip away simply because of lack of attention to detail. By watching your ball go by the hole, you already have a good beat on the break and speed at which you need to hit the next putt to avoid a dropped shot.
