The Stat You Do(n't) Need?

The light at the end of the tunnel shines brighter the more we learn about how to stop 3 putting and be better inside of 6 feet. It shines even brighter when inch closer to matching speed and line. And then we realize that light is a train barreling towards us.

Devastating, right? That train is one of ignorance. So if you're tired of ending up like Wile E. Coyote, keep reading. The real ignorance is that putting is hard. If we keep turning a blind eye towards the reality, the make percentage from any given distance, we will find ourselves squarely in the center of those tracks.

Make Percentages

Having traveled all over the country hosting Putting Schools, I can count on one hand the number of players that knew the make percentage from 8 feet hovers around 50%. Most guesses fall north of 90%.

When expectations are that far off, there’s a problem. A massive one.

About the size of a train in fact…

When TV coverage shares the expected make percentage of a putt from any given distance, take note of it. That stat allows viewers to marvel at the skillfulness of the world’s best players when a 20 footer dives to the bottom of the cup and is met with exaltation and excitement. Knowing that putt was just over 10% to go in really puts special into perspective.

Most of the winning putts this guy hit were special. Did you know less than 10% of these go in on Tour?
