Putting Lessons 146-155

Lesson 146-Position the putter first! The reason you should have the proper putter fit. Putter must match where your eyes tell you to stand.
Lesson 147-No method is so superior that it is worth fighting your vision. Never force the set up. Let your eyes tell you where to stand.
Lesson 148-Most putting issues are a result of visual conflicts. Where do you see it best? You can't copy someone else find your own set up.
Lesson 149-Good putters allow the putter to rotate as required by the putter path and then let the stroke path bring the putter to square.
Lesson 150-The putter path creates rotation and not the player. Keeping the putter-face consistent to path direction is more efficient.
Lesson 151-Hardest thing to do in putting is to not react to feel. The putter opens and closes naturally. Let it happen. Re-active fix=miss.
Lesson 152-The better the player the more sensitive the feel. Mid stroke corrections never work. Reaction is random. You can't fix random.
Lesson 153-Conformity ruins creativity. Without creativity there is no excellence. Don't let common advice ruin your chance to excel.
Lesson 154-When you miss a putt something obviously went wrong. Be very slow to make a judgement. The "fix" is often worse than the mistake.

Lesson 155-When you examine a miss remember the following. Short is a probably a miss-hit not a mis-read. Blaming your read is the easy way.
