Anyone who plays golf understands how important putting is when it comes to shooting good scores.
And anyone who has ever played this game understands the frustration that comes with missing short putts. After all, at least on the surface, it would seem that while we can't all expect to boom 300-yard drives down the middle of the fairway every time, we should be able to make those 3-foot putts.
Should it really be that hard to knock in the short ones time after time?
Unfortunately it can be, and short misses ruin numerous rounds for players of all ability levels.
Even more disconcerting is the fact that if misfiring on short putts becomes a trend, it can have a negative impact on the rest of your game, as you'll be likely to start pressing with your short game and iron play if you lose confidence in the fact that your putter won't be there to bail you out when needed.
