Short putts are easy. Get that into your head! EASY, EASY, EASY! They’re only tough when you start trying too hard. Ever notice that you make more short putts on the practice green before the round than you do on the course? Too much focus isn’t always a recipe for success. You would never over-think, say, tossing a crumbled piece of paper into the trashcan at work. Short putts are no different. Just get up and knock in that five-footer as if you’ve already made it in your mind. They call them gimmes for a reason.
