I hear people complain all the time
00:06
when they have a short putt like this
00:08
and their shadow's on the line and covering the hole.
00:11
They say it's very disturbing.
00:12
It shouldn't make any difference at all
00:14
cause once you get the putter blade aimed
00:16
and make your stroke, you shouldn't be
00:17
looking up that early.
00:19
So here's what I want you to do,
00:20
spend all your time aiming your putter on the line
00:23
you want to go on.
00:24
When you feel comfortable with that's your aim,
00:27
give it one look, come back, pull the trigger.
00:31
Don't worry about the shadow covering your line
00:33
cause you're not gonna see it,
00:34
you're gonna hear the ball go in.
