*Possible Putting by Jeff Richmond*
There’s times when you’re about to putt and you just feel that you’re going to hole the putt. You can’t describe why you feel that way, but you do. For most of us, that feeling does not come often enough. But you can make that feeling happen more and more, and I’m going to explain how.
Now if you run across a really good putter you’ll find that they almost hole everything. If the ball doesn’t go in it will be very close to going in. And if you got in their head you’ll find that they are trying to make everything they look at. They don’t have thoughts about 3 putting or anything negative like that. Instead, they are focused on doing whatever is necessary to hole the putt. Great putters believe they can hole every putt. Do they hole every putt? No. But they believe they can.
And just because they miss some putts, it doesn’t stop them from thinking the next one is going in. However, you just can’t go thinking before every putt… “I’m going to hole this putt… I’m going to hole this putt…. I’m going to hole this putt.” Because if you do that and you miss then you’ll quickly lose confidence and belief in your putting. But you can do the same type of thing without negative consequences when you miss. To do this you simply have to add two words to a positive statement and those two words are… It’s Possible
I don’t know what you say to yourself when you get the feeling you’re going to hole the putt. It might be something like…
I’m going to hole this putt.
This ball is going in the hole.
And like I said… if you were to say that before each putt, you would quickly get discouraged when you miss. But if you add the words ‘it’s possible’ to statements like that, then you can use them before each putt to help you be more confident in your putting. For example, before every putt, you could say…
It’s possible I’m going to hole this putt.
It’s possible this ball is going in the hole.
See, every putt you face has the possibility of going in. So use that possibility to build up your confidence and belief every putt. If you do this and make it a habit then you’ll be a better putter long term.
And speaking about being a better putter… I have just launched a newly updated putting system that will give you the best chance of putting as good as a Tour Pro. To find out more about that simply go here.
That’s a great putting tip from Jeff. The next time you play golf, give it a try. I’m sure it will help you to putt better. And as Jeff said, make sure you go here and check out his full putting improvement program to have the best chance of becoming a great putter.
