So with this, all settled liao....we can now play like Pro ( or is it? )....I also think that wearing a super telescope to ensure seeing the right spot might also help....check the below out:

Quote :
London, England (CNN) -- It's one of the oldest adages in golf: you drive for show and putt for dough.

Tiger Woods agrees. The world number one blamed his lack of success on the greens at St. Andrews for his failure to win a 15th major title at the recent British Open.

"This was one of my worst weeks for putting," moaned Tiger, who said he felt the ball was "on a string" with his longer shots from tee to green, but he could not capitalize where it counted.

Perhaps the American should have had a quick lesson from researchers at Exeter University in south-west England.

They claim to have invented a technique known as the "Quiet Eye" which can help golfers of all abilities -- even Tiger and his professional counterparts -- to trim a few shots from their score.

Studies by staff from the university's School of Sport and Health Sciences have shown that focusing your eye on exactly the right spot at the right time can be vital to success in sinking the ball into the hole.

Samuel Vine, who led the research, told CNN: "Putting is a hugely important part of golf, accounting for around 45 percent of the shots taken in an average round.
