I left an easy putt on the green this past Sunday, and it bothered me enough that I am still thinking about it the next day. It was under two feet, the result of a long putt on the previous stroke, with a bit of a break in it. I was the last to putt and the other guys were already walking off the green. I did not want to hold the party up, and it was so short that I skipped the entire part of investigating, analyzing, and then executing the plan. Ya know...golf. So I hit it straight and it lipped out due to the break. Thing is, I do that often. And I am not the only one. I mostly golf with the same 8 or 10 people all the time. And I think every one of us has done this. Nobody is rushing us, either. If I stayed an extra 30 seconds to do it right every single time I would not get any grief for it. Is this a problem in our "culture" that we need to intentionally fix or is it just the nature of amateur golf for fun - not league play? (I do not see those as mutually exclusive, btw. A person can play smart when not in competition.) Mostly I am interested in hearing if any of you guys do this, and if any of you have successfully got out of this REALLY STUPID habit.
