Is there a statistic on putts that are too long?

I do not leave putts short because I am a poor golfer who doesn't know any better.  I leave putts short because I'm a poor golfer and know that manning up and going for the hole is almost guaranteed to cause my ball to not just go past the hole, but to go past the hole so much that the second shot will be longer than the first.

Hopefully that's not a common trait.

I do the same thing. I make sure I get that par. Especially if my putting is shaky that day.

The only thing worse than missing a 7 foot birdie putt is turning that GIR into a bogie.

I imagine that's exactly why poorer golfers leave more putts short.  Protecting against the 3-putt.
