Seeing the Line When Putting

A great visualization technique and green reading tip is to “see the line” before you put. By this I mean try to mentally trace the line that the ball will roll on in order to fall into the cup. All great putters do this, as it boosts confidence on the greens.  When you see a line that you like can trust, it is very easy to pull the trigger.

Trace the line of your read all the way to the hole. It is more effective if your line is clear and/or a bright color (to really drive the mental image home).

This may take practice, but eventually it will come naturally. In order to become a truly confident putter one must hone their visual line reading skills.
