How many three-putts (or more) did you have today?

One today caused by a mental error.  Par 5, I was pin high on the fringe in three.  Down hill breaking putt, I hit it too hard and missed the return putt.   UGH

1 3 putt in 4 of my last 5 rounds

I consider putting a strength........................3-putt avoidance also depends on the course you play!   With that said......I apologize because I don't have definitive stats....on 3-putts.....per course.   I do know this....I can play 72 holes without a 3-putt......................."depending on the course"..... This is a hard question to answer accurately!!!   On my home course.........YES!!!!!  I can play a 72 hole tourney...and never 3-putt.....maybe...........

 

it happens though.......................................

3 today, but a fair number of one-putts so it didn't feel as bad as it usually does

I had one today.   I only played 9.  It was a practice round.  I'm still working on my short pitch shots and chipping.  I played two balls after my tee shot.   9th hole; I get out of the trap and leave myself about a 30 foot left to right with about 5% slope.   The crowd was watching...(not really but I felt like it) and I missed my line and pushed the putt right.   It was ugly.   My second putt was short and I bowed my head and slowly finished.   Nobody was watching....Nobody.  I choked under pressure.

I had two yesterday.  Both were of the "tap and hope" variety...above the hole on a fairly steep slope.  The kind that either drop or wander off into two-more land.

I had four last Tuesday, which is rare for me. It was a new course and slow greens because they didn't mow to give them a rest. First was a 40 footer I left well short. Second was a 25 footer downhill that I left short. Third was a downhiller that I went too far. Last one was and uphill two-tier putt that I went past. All were speed control issues  

By the second nine, I had dialed it in and had two birdies and an up and down.

I've had 2 in the last four rounds.  0 in the last two.   I've been more focused on distance and I believe it has helped.

Never brag....The Golf Gods don't like it.   I've had 10 in the last 3 rounds..   Time to work on Bead, Read and Speed.

I had 3 3-putts in my last round. Two of them were from about 30 feet, hit the first putt about 6 feet past. Third time was about 20 feet with a hard right-to-left break, underread it and missed a 4 footer.

 

don't know if I should focus on getting better lags or holing better from 4-6 feet. I still feel like I'd rather give putts a chance than lag them short..

Both.  Lag closer, and make more shorter ones, but lagging closer might be more important.  3-putts from 30 feet should be reasonably rare, from 20 feet should be really rare.  If you're trying to hit a putt 3 feet past the hole, and you hit it 3 feet longer than you intend, you have a tough second.  If you're trying to die the ball into the hole, and you're 3 feet long, you have a very makeable 3-footer.  Once you get past a certain distance, maybe 12 to 15 feet, your speed goal should be at the hole, not past it.

Shot an 86 on a par 70 last night, averaged 2.22/hole.....3-putted five times.

Gamegolf says I lost 6 strokes putting to my 15 HI level.
