Nothing will derail a round of golf or cause a golfer to lose confidence faster than continually missing short putts.
And when the short ones stop going in, an issue commonly referred to as the yips, it only gets harder to convert from 4 feet and in.
In this video segment, Champions Tour standout Tom Lehman has a great tip to help you make more short putts, and as is the case with many aspects of putting, it all comes down to having a positive attitude.
So the next time you’re on the putting green practicing or standing over an important short one on the course, focus on what you want to do and not what you’re worried about.
If you can do that, chances are you'll knock it in the hole.
