How to make the most of those crucial moments before you putt.
Standing over a putt for too long (and “freezing” up) can seriously impact the fluidity of your putting stroke.

Through The Gates
Putting really shouldn't be any more complicated than thisIn my many years of teaching, I’ve read, heard, seen and been told a number of putting tips that, I feel, only serve to overcomplicate what should be a simple motion.
