Set Up: Imaginary Target

In this photo, I am setting up toward an “imaginary” target on the putting green, represented by a yellow disc. If you don’t have a disc a coin or tee would work as well. Note that this putt is appreciably downhill and breaks left to right, so I’ve chosen my spot accordingly.
