That said, when I get a 6-8' putt, there's probably a better than 90% chance I'm going to miss it. And that's the frustrating part of this. You can approach on average to 2 yards, but if you can't seal the deal, then it's worthless to approach well
mobile only player here. Im not a great player or putter, have only been playing this crazy game one year and a few months and so I feel I still have a lot to learn.
For me it is the uphill putts. An uphill putt breaking the whole way does not break the same way a downhill putt does. It isn’t half or “just mark it less than you would a downhill”. It is all experience and practice. And I miss those routinely in the same range but usually mine are fast breaking uphill putts
I had a rough time back in September where nothing was working. I did the dot counting using Naturali’s method. dot counting takes so long but it helped me see where the aiming line was laying across the breaks. I don’t use it anymore but it helped me get to a point where I am less frustrated by the 6-8’ uphill breaking putt that grazes the lip or just flat out misses.
but for me, I prefer a downhill putt most of the time. Uphill putts just look weird to me and I have learned how to use that to my advantage.
I have one more piece of advice. Download the Omlet arcade app and follow GoShooterMcGavin. Dude is an iPad player and plays with no aids. Just some math in his head for putts. He is fricking amazing to watch. And I have learned a lot just from watching him play, oh and when he is having a good day, he doesn’t miss many putts.
Just stay positive :) you got this. :)
