WHERE IS THE SPOT
In other words, what is the imaginary spot to aim at that will produce the best result for each putt?
Check out the following slideshow:
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.
Second-guessing your line and/or speed either consciously or subconsciously may cause compensations in your stroke. Once chosen, a confident stroke at your “spotputting” imaginary spot will almost always lead to an acceptable result, either a make or, at worst, a tap-in.
