This story is for you if...
• You don't hit your approach shots close enough for a one-putt.
• You almost always three-putt outside of 30 feet.
Most of your approach shots land farther than 30 feet from the pin. You're three-putting like crazy because you can't get the speed right.
Hit the practice green and find a nice flat spot (you don't need a hole). Settle into your stance and follow these steps:
Take the putterhead back to your right toe using your normal tempo and rhythm, and then strike the putt as you normally would. Once the ball stops rolling, walk off the distance (it should be about 18 to 20 feet).
