Part 5… how the time flies. Thank you very much to ones who have been following since the first episode of The Road to Golf launched five weeks ago. As always make sure to check out parts 1-4 If you haven’t!
First off, thanks to TaylorMade for their U.S. Open edition hat. I received it about a week ago and have worn it quite often since. If you are reading this, I recommend copping one for yourself and tell them I sent you.
This installment of The Road to Golf is going to be about committing to your putts. This can also be applied to all of your golf shots. But let’s focus on putting.
Committing to a line is possibly the most important thing when putting. It really is. Whether you find the correct line or not, it is important to commit to it. If you don’t you really have no skillful chance of making the putt.
You cannot walk up to your ball and be thinking, “I don’t even know what line I want to hit this on.” That doesn’t work. However, on the contrary, you should be walking up to your ball thinking, ”I know the line, and I am going to roll the ball on it.” Whether or not it is the correct line doesn’t matter. You were at least completely confident in it. You gave yourself a chance and trusted yourself.
Whether it was the right shot/putt or not, you did exactly what you wanted to do. There were no doubts in your mind.
Not doubting yourself will do wonders for your golf game… Trust me, I am a doctor. Actually I am just a golfer. Same thing, right?
