CHANGE 2: PRE-PUTT PRACTICE
"You'll still see Phil occasionally take practice strokes at the ball, which I don't recommend," Stockton says. "But you'll also notice that he doesn't look at the hole five or six times like he did before. Instead, he'll give the hole one good seven-second look while he sets his feet, then shift his focus to the speed and the line."
CHANGE 3: HAND POSITION
"Phil asked us about forward-pressing his hands at address, something he used to do when he was younger," Stockton says. "I told him 'I love it.' If it makes you feel comfortable, then do it." Mickelson has recently added loft to his putterface to offset the forward press.
