Where are your eyes when you putt? Commonly, putting problems start when a golfer's eyes move too far inside the ball. To find out where your eyes are, take a normal putting stance. Hold a ball between your eyes and then drop it. If you're properly aligned over the ball, the dropped ball should strike the ball you would putt. If the balls miss each other, adjust your stance until your eyes are over the ball.
Seve Ballesteros has been accused of assault by a European Tour official, but details are nonexistent.
The European Tour is investigating Seve Ballesteros, accused of assaulting a Spanish golfer off the golf course during an amateur tournament last month. Ballesteros was a spectator at the over-35 event in Pedrena, Ballesteros' home town. Jose Maria Zamora, a tournament director on the European Tour and amateur player, is the reported victim.
Zamora penalized Ballesteros for slow play at last year's Italian Open. Ballesteros refused to adjust his card and was later fined by the tour. The European Tour has said that they're investigating but is declining to comment. No other details are available, and we imagine that suing someone in Spain is just as easy as it is in the United States, so what constitutes "assault" can be left to the imagination of the readers. Was it a prod with a forefinger on the shoulder to accentuate a point, or was it an attack?
We will simply go with "innocent until proven guilty." Especially given the fact that it is the European Tour doing the investigating and not the local police.

Ahh, who am I kidding. I'm just annoyed that Tiger bagged his first ace when he was six, and I'm still hoping.
David and Bob Duval team up with Special Olympics athletes Kevin Erickson and Oliver Doherty in a made-for-TV match.
David Duval and father, Bob Duval, played golf at the Timuquana Country Club with Special Olympics athletes Kevin Erickson of Wisconsin and Oliver Doherty of Ireland in a made-for-TV match called "A Tee Time Like No Other" to be televised by CBS Sports on New Year's Day. The match was set up by the Special Olympics, who wanted to feature some of their finest athletes.
During the first hole of the made-for-TV match, that paired David with Kevin and Bob with Oliver, Erickson hit a slight draw and landed in the middle of the fairway. Duval hit a slice into the trees. "At least one of us is in the fairway," Erickson told him. Duval shot right back, "Fairways are overrated."
