Right, so a 1/2 swing pw from 105 that I can put inside 12 feet I should just aim to the center and leave a 40ft putt. That’s ludicrous.

Know your own zones and play to your strengths. 

There is another thread on this forum called "Stop conning yourself!" This might be applicable here. If you can hit a half PW 105, that suggests that you can hit a full PW about 2 hundy, or at least the high hundies! Sorry, I can't buy that. Tour pros can't do that, although some of them are getting scary close! 

And this is not to beat you up, we all kind of do it. My buddy did it for years after I had come to the realization that, in my 60's, I didn't hit the ball nearly as far as I used to! My buddy was conning himself, thinking he was still pumping drives out there 260-270! It was more like 220-230.

Some people have to be eased into this. The conning thing. Funny enough it’s like the four stage model of bereavement:

1.immediate shock ( angry posts)

2.unable to accept ( stats are wrong)

3.depression ( delayed posts/responses)

4. renewal ( rarest, but acceptance achieved and now set practical goals.)

That's not what "half" means.
