The best way to build up confidence on the greens is to use the proven technique of “visualization.” Laser Putt™ gives you an incredible advantage by producing powerful visual images to store in your mind…images of your own putting!
You can literally:
To build putting confidence, you need to have images of…
…which leads to building YOUR Confidence! So let’s get started!
Start with some short and easy putts. Two-footers should be fine.
Use the GREEN laser line to…
Set the RED laser distance mark for this short putt and, without a ball, practice the stroke.
When you are completely comfortable with the line, shape, and balance, you are ready for the next step.
Step up to the ball, and execute the putt—Laser-it-in-the-Hole
It is important to practice the exact feeling and mechanics of the stroke before you actually line up and hit the ball. You want to make sure that you have the full confidence to execute the putt properly, sink the putt, and have a proper mental image to record in your mind. When you have successfully mastered Laser-it-in-the-Hole putting, you are ready for the next step.
In other words, save this “image-and-muscle-memory” package in your brain’s hard drive.
Repeat these steps five more times from the same two-foot distance. Make sure that…
When you have successfully completed five putts with confidence and stored the images in your mind, you are ready for the next step.
Now step up to the ball, and putt it with complete confidence. You’ve just executed a Laser-it-in-the-Hole putt without the lasers!
Repeat this step five more times.
Pro Tip: Do not move to longer putts until you have sunk five putts in a row. If you miss one, start over. It requires self-discipline, but this is a common pro practice technique. The pressure increases with each successive putt, because if you miss, you have to start all over again. Getting comfortable under pressure is one of the secrets to putting well on the course.
Once you have mastered visualization training at this two-foot distance, try some slightly longer putts. You may want to increase the distance one a foot at a time, but make sure that you are sinking all of the putts that you commit to memory.
By practicing visualization in this manner, you will develop the complete confidence to stand over short putts (2 to 8 feet) and KNOW you’re going to make them because…
