Okay, so I have done the Mark Ellis Putting Confidence program. I have been doing it since June 08 and I am consistently getting more and more putts during rounds in. I have confidence that I can make a putt anywhere within 20 feet and slowly buidling my range. However, I have a huge problem during some rounds that I do not seem to have during my putting practice. That is simply this, I can't shake off a putt that gets kicked out more then 3 times.
I mean I can be having a great round and then boom smack the poll. Okay I make the next shot shake it off and move on. Then it happens again and then again. After that I cannot seem to focus on making the putt. I stop hitting the center and start hitting EVERYTHING ELSE. Top or basket, Sweet side chain, wrong side chain, basket tray. This often causes me from shooting a -2 to even up to a 7 to 10 depending how far along I am in the round.
Now I have played many sports, Was a goalie and letting in a puck never seemed to get in my head as much as getting rejected by the basket. Anyone have any advise on ways to shake it off?
