it a Chance
A putt that never reaches the hole never
has a chance to fall in. On the other hand a putt that
has the distance to get to (or past) the hole always
has a chance of falling in - a pebble, unseen break,
or huge gust of wind.
An ideal putt is one that has enough speed
to roll 12 to 18 inches past the hole. Not only does
this putt have the chance to fall in because it is long
enough but should you happen to miss it you will be
left with an easy tap in.
Always try to strike the ball so that
it will roll just past the hole (12-18 inches) if you
happen to miss. Remember, 'never up - never in!'
