Stop Three Putting

three puttingHow do you stop three putting greens?  Most three putts are caused by the first putt coming up too short or going well past the hole.  Often times, you will have the ball traveling along the right line and it just stops short of the hole or you hit it through the break.  Next thing you know you have a difficult second putt.  Your goal on your first putt should be hitting the ball the right distance.  Identify the correct line, then strive to hit your putt so it’s near the hole.  If your line is a little off that’s okay.  If you hit the ball the right distance then you’ll just have a nice little tap in.  Focus on distance first, then your line and you should stop three putting which means you’ll post lower scores!
