					  Someone describes the difference between a
  professional and an amateur golfer is that the
  amateur makes a shot of skill look spectacular
while the professional makes it look routine. That
makes a lot of sense. Sometimes, the best way to
   learn from the Tour professionals is to take a
 moment and consider that these players are the
best in the world. Sounds simple, but really, we all
            forget that from time to time.

There is no great feat of physical strength or incredible dexterity needed to putt
 In fact, all golfers have made a long putt before, and just like the Tour players
we see every week At the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club,
These guys on TV are unbelievable, now that the PGA Tour literally measures
each and every shot by laser, the Shotlink System shows exactly how amazing
these guys are, as they go about making it look routine
 Consider Phil Mickelson on the final hole of regulation Even CBS's Jim Nantz
warned his birdie attempt was a length of putt "not holed very often " But from
26'9", Mickelson made the tough putt and earned his way into the playoff
 This was shows how to lower ping reminiscent of the putts he made at Pebble
Beach when he went on to win Then on the second playoff hole, Bill Haas
drains one from 45 feet! Stats show Mickelson's putt had a 9% likelihood of
going in based on Tour statistics Haas' putt had a 3% chance of going in
 This is against the Tour average Big-time players come up big when it
matters Now for the rest of the golf world, instead of looking at the putts made,
consider the putts missed, and 91% of Tour players miss from Mickelson's
distance, 97% miss from Haas' distance
 So what are the odds you'll make these? I like to stress to amateur players
that speed is critical in making you a better putter One thing Tour players are
great at on the greens is avoiding the three-putt On average, they have about
one every two rounds
 If you work on your lag putting, get the ball to tap-in distance from anything
more than 10 feet and your scores will drop On TV, we see highlights of long
bombs dropping on the greens and great saves or birdies pouring in from all
over But that's not the reality
 Not even for the world's best They know the secret to good scores is not
necessarily making the long putts, it's making good long putts that leave you
with "gimme" tap-ins instead of grinding over 3- or 4-footers for par Four
percent of the golf putt happens on the putting green, a lot of mystery is hidden
in this region
 Take some time to practice using the golf putter to hit the sweet spot and
smooth action You need some putting skills to improve and reduce the
probability of golf putt However, when we playing golf with our clubs, we often
meet the problem of putting, so many golfers want to know how to have a good
putting on the golf course
 Phil Mickelson taught us that lag putting can make you get a low score on the
course if you have nice putting skills So you need to work on your lag putting
skills for awhile, your scores will reflect it very soon
