When you hole a long putt of 50' and above, is it pure luck or skill. To me it's luck, knowing very well how difficult it is to do it on a regular basis.

I guess only those who plays 83 with skill and no luck can answer your question.

Sometimes you need to be in-form and confident to pull off such long putts. Ask Paula Creamer. Very Happy

Just like HIO, both luck and skill is required ... U need to apply the right speed and read the line of putt well ... Thereafter, the rest depends on luck liao ...

Paula Creamer's putt is very difficult. She must judge the speed such that the ball speed just about 'dies' at the top of the slope then let gravity takes over to bring the ball towards the hole.

It is also a breaking putt so she needs to judge the correct spot at the top of the slope where the ball will turn

She also needs to strike the putter properly to impart the right speed

Skills required or her to perform the above

Luck required to see the ball enters the hole.

Was it Gary Player who said," the more I practice, the luckier I get"
