It sounds simple. A pre-putt routine is a process you should repeat time after time, no matter the situation. But for many players--even those on tour--that doesn't happen. You can see it when a player starts feeling pressure, whether it's over a $5 bet or a putt to win a major championship: The routine gets slower and more complicated. Now the player has time to think about the consequences of failure--and a tentative miss almost always comes next. The truth is, you don't have to change your stroke to become a better putter. Use a quick, simple routine to help you picture the putt and set your focus. Then trust it every time, and success will follow.
