PostSubject: Reaction fm Pro if miss putt   Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:54 pm

As part of my training in anticipation for the start of my golfing season.....I relied on golf channel

Did you notice this......many times when the pro miss,,,,,their reaction is typcially macam they mis-read......

could it be that they just did not putt correctly?


Actually I do confess.....during my game, I also do the same...

but honestly....its more to do with LOFT

I think the pros (those i saw on golfchannel) probably have a strong self-belief that every makable putt will and should go in. So it surprised them when the putt don't fall. When they don't putt correctly. the reaction is more likely they start walking even before the ball stops rolling because they know they had either pull, push or mis-hit. Just my personal observation.

To succeed at that level you must have the total belief in you and your game. When something does not go correctly it is easier to blame your gear, your caddy, the break on the green,etc... The last person you want to blame is yourself. Because once you start to doubt yourself....you are not going to last out there.

since you guys are on this subject, you will find the following:

when pros missed putts...they check the line they took, if its matchplay they may try a couple of putts to confirm the line they missed. they may briefly talk to their caddies about it.

when most golfers missed putts, they look at the face of the putter. in some cases they throw putter in disgust.

got the point?
