Improve Putting

Putting is the most stressful and difficult aspect of golf. Most professional golfers live and die on the putting green as they often can find the green with either their drivers or irons without much problem as long as conditions are normal. In fact, most golfers would admittedly say that the weakest part of their game is their putting.

John Daly commented on putting when he said that, “I enjoy the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ from the gallery when I hit my drives. But I’m getting pretty tired of the ‘aaws’ and ‘uhhs’ when I miss the putt.”

This quote fairly accurately describes the attitudes of many golfers on and off tour. Of course, the average golfer struggles to find ways to improve their putting because they do not spend time to actually go on a putting green and putt. Also, many golfers do not utilize golf practice mats, including a golf pitching mat or golf chipping mat in order to work not only on putting but other less noticed parts of the game.
