Krista Dunton stresses the importance of treating every putt equally and maintaining a strong mental state. Rather than assuming that you won’t make a twenty foot breaking putt and telling yourself that you have to make a six foot putt, give yourself a chance for every shot. You can do this by preparing and rehearsing for each shot the same way every time, and if you miss a short putt, blame it on something you couldn’t control. Tell yourself it wasn’t your fault, because if you put the same stroke on the ball the next time, it’s sure to go in. Finally, make a habit of not thinking once you’re over the ball; leave all the considering and reasoning behind you in your “think box.” Once you address the putt, instincts and reactions should take over.
