Your approach on "must make" putts vs "normal" putts
Posted 11 October 2018 - 08:14 PM
Unfortunately I dont do this every time - I pick my spots because my back gets balky at times and the extra time crouching/lining up takes a toll on the bad days. I save it for "have to haves".

We are risk-adverse by nature, but we need to adjust our scatter plots so the target is actually beyond the hole. It's terribly hard to do. Broadie explores this concept in Every Shot Counts, and Luke Donald found success by "crunching the numbers" with his team:
When Donald, who was the tour’s best putter in 2011 and 2012, dropped to 59th in strokes gained putting last year, he blamed too many 3-putts. Broadie determined that the actual culprit was a failure to one-putt enough, and Donald was leaving putts short. So Donald and his instructor, the Northwestern University men’s golf coach Pat Goss, added a practice drill that focused on putting more aggressively. As of March 26, Donald ranked ninth in that category.

From 10 maybe 12 feet and in, with a putt to halve or a putt to make a better score than my fourball partner who's already in, or for a bogey in a max double game, etc. I'm taking as much break out of it as possible, hopefully playing it inside the hole with enough speed that it's not going to move, even if that means hitting it 6 feet by. I do feel like i am more confident and make more putts in this range when i dont try to die it in with movement
