Michael Breed and Krista Dunton give you some ideas that you can use to practice controlling the distance of your putts. Michael recommends placing a club shaft just past the hole, and using it as a reference point for your putts. Try getting your lag putts as close as you can to the shaft until you get used to the speed and distance of the putt. Krista discusses why it’s so important to become “reactionary” – keeping your body and mind in sync with the putter – and practice consistent rhythm and tempo. You can rehearse the tempo of your putts by mentally tracking the time it takes between the start of your backstroke and the end of your follow-through, and recreating that same rhythm every time you putt
