Have the pros never heard the great adages in golf?
”die at the hole”
why over and over again the pros hit it 4 or 5 feet past the hole when they only had a 5 or 6 foot putt to start with?
sometimes it’s only a 3 footer and they hit 4 feet past! Lol!
makes you wonder!
It drives me nuts to see a pro hit a ball 4 feet past the hole on a 4 or 5 foot putt!
Have they never heard of “die at the hole”?
I know there’s a novel theory these days about putting 18 inches past the hole, but I’m old school and follow Harvey Penick’s putting style, “die at the hole”
It means the back of the hole! The ball should run out of energy at the back of the cup and never run past it!
This style causes more balls to fall in the cup even from the side if your off line than any other style!
Thats my experience playing and watching golf every week.
