Erase The Noise To Make More Putts

Putting can be one of the most frustrating parts of the game of golf.

The stress and pressure a player places upon themselves to make putts is only exacerbated by the player’s lack of ability to immediately recover from a poor stroke. Unlike the driver, iron or short game, a missed four-footer has no immediate redemption, which allows our brains to get in the way.

Instead, let your mind clear before you get into the address position. Instead of worrying about the outcome — “what if I miss?” — throw yourself into the process of making a good stroke and let the results be what they will be.
