4. STAY STRAIGHT
Trying to swing the putterhead on an arcing path back and through makes sense for 25-footers, but on short ones, you can't think about that. Just try to move the putter straight back and straight through. The pace should be steady, too. If you change speeds, you risk opening or closing the face and missing the cup. And remember, if you think you're going to make it, you'll hit it with confidence.
