set up to the putt think about the putt going in.
At this point you are 2-5 seconds into your clock.
Clear the mechanism, I mean let it all go, you have practiced you have made putts, you know how to throw the bean into the clowns mouth, just relax and make a good stroke.
I have found that when I am thinking a lot I am putting horrible, when I step up line up picture the putt and then blank out and let my body do what I have trained it to do the results are much better.
I went through a putting Drought (read not just a slump) early this year, I was in the backyard 5 nights a week for several hours total and just banging putts from all over, was keeping track in excell and even got to about 93% from 30-35 feet most nights as the sun was going down, then I would go play golf and doink almost everything outside of 12 feet. I read some good books and changed my mentality about putting and now I am confidant and relaxed when I am putting in all situations.
Last night at the Mini here in town I was tied up for the lead on the 13 hole both of us had about 65 footers with a lake 30 behind and below the basket, I was out and I knew the other guy would lay up, I have been marginal off the tee on the last few holes so I decided that was the time to hit it, I lined up stroked a great putt and missed over the top, chained out the 35 footer uphill to card a 4 to his 3 and ended up loosing by 1 stroke, there is no way 3 months ago I would have had the confidence to run that putt but now I believe I will make it or hit metal more often than I will miss completley that it is easy to just let the putt go agressivley.
Well that is a long reply to a question that no one really asked.
