Common cause of missed putts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What do you think is a more common cause of missed puts?
- misread line, or;
- mis hit putt.

Interesting to know what people think.

I would say both misread and poor distance control. I think like most things, golfers can be consistently bad at something. Most golfers probably have a repeatable putting stroke. They probably can hit it where they are aiming. The problem is they are aiming in the wrong spot and can't control their distance.

Good point. Didn't consider distance control.

I agree with @saevel25 and would add that they don't start the putt on the line they are aiming to start on.

Wrong line, wrong speed, or both.......

 

All other putts go in.
