I wouldn't really call this true. Tom Watson used bang all of his putts in the back of the hole and missed 5' past all the time, and he was considered one of the best, if not THE best, putter of his generation. He felt he was more accurate being aggressive and putting through breaks, and he had no fear of missing the 5' comebacker.
I made my first Ace on July 31, 2020 at Garland Resort - Fountains Course - Hole #5. It was @ 133 yrds and I used my Pitching Wedge. Sorry about the delayed post but I am still learning all that TST has to offer.
Still didn't break 80 this year, but I had my best nine so far this year.
The 37 was with a double bogey. I hit all the other eight greens in regulation but I putted horribly, The one birdie was a 45 foot downhill, sidehill prayer. I missed four birdies inside 15 feet.
