Jimbo ........ once you start to try and plot your way around a course ....... you're playing golf ..... before that you're just having a hit and belting balls. Good to see that your game face is now well and truly switched on, and that alone, is one huge step to have taken. Long putts are shots that can really effect not only your score, but more importantly I think ....... the pressure you feel on your next putt. A two foot putt to save par or bogey, is nothing like a 6 ft putt for par or bogey .... so you have picked a bloody valuable area to work on. Getting them close is what its all about on your first putt ..... so pick a line, and once done, forget about it and then just focus on the pace you need to stroke the ball. Get the pace right and you won't ever be far away .. so however, or wherever you have to practice them, get yourself out there when you can, and just work on your distance control. Just thought I'd offer this ...... A good drill I've found is ....... stick some tees into the green at various distances away (up to, and including, as far away as you're likely to need on course) ..... and then putt one ball at each tee ......... (never putt to the same tee twice in a row). You only get one chance in a round, so that's how you should practice. Then, go up and putt each of the balls out until you hit the tees. Once you start to get a good feel for the various distances and you're getting them close, and hitting the tees with your short "par saver" putts ... eithe rmove the tees to some other spots ........ or step off the green a couple of feet and then hit through the fringe to the tees and putt them out. That will soon give your putting a very solid workout, and put pressure on you while you do it .... which is what you want to have in practice. Practicing with no pressure is like hitting balls at the range I reckon, so a bit of pressure put on each shot is a good thing, as it increases our focus.
It is definitely a big stepping stone. It feels like a switch to ‘oh this is how to play it’ has been turned on.
The one thing my round suffered from was long putts(over 15 foot).
The practice green at the course isn’t long enough to sort this out but I think my next practice round I’ll spend time on our offer greens working it out. I hate it when my first putt isn’t inside 3 foot and it irritates me more when it’s outside 6, which a couple were.
Nothing was perfect but the most distinct fault was this.www.challenge.org.au
