When I was a kid I had NO FEAR of putting…NONE!

Every putt I hit, if it didn’t go in the hole went 3-4 feet by and the majority of the time I made these knee-knockers coming back.

I’ll bet when YOU were a kid the same thing happened to you.

Why?

As kids we had no fear, missing wasn’t even an option.  But then something happened…

…We got older AND started missing those come-backers!

So instead of putting “freely” we started thinking about NOT 3 putting!

Lots of the worlds best players go through this, even the great Tom Watson.  In his career, he ran the ball past the hole if he didn’t make it.  Then, he started missing those come-backers and he got a little gun shy!

He eventually worked his way out of it back to the Watson we all know.

If you are always trying NOT to 3 putt I can guarantee you one thing…you’ll NEVER make anything!

The moral of the story…go back to being a kid and putt no fear!
