Many books and magazines make putting too complicated. It involves only three elements. (1) Judging speed and direction -- the really creative part of putting. (2) Lining up so you are aimed along the intended line. (3) Putting along the intended line with the intended distance. While the player should learn from mistakes, too many players make major changes in the stroke after misses that are no fault of the player. How can you tell if you have a real problem? That's just the kind of question that Dr. Putt can answer!
So to have your questions answered -- before you waste any more strokes, have Dr. Putt make a house call to your house!
