Perhaps the most surprising aspect of these findings was how quickly the group that looked at the hole improved. Before switching to looking at the hole, on putts from three feet to 43 feet, the experimental group (and the control group) averaged a leave of about 29 inches.
After just 45 putts, the group that looked at the hole was leaving just over 20 inches to the hole on average on putts from three feet to 43 feet.
That's a 27.5 percent improvement over when they looked at the ball. Overall, the experimental l group imp roved nearly twice as much as the control group with same minimal amount of practice.
Rather than looking at the ball (left photo) as they made their stroke, the subjects were told to look (right photo) at the hole the entire time.
