TOUR TIP Short-putt problems usually stem from a tentative stroke. The more you miss these ‘makeable’ putts, the greater the tendency to decelerate on the forward stroke. This leads to a wobbly putting path, causing pushed or pulled putts. And this is not confined to club golfers, even the best players in the game can be guilty of decelerating on their short putts ... like Si Woo Kim here. His short birdie attempt on the 18th hole at the RBC Heritage didn’t have the right speed and line to go in the hole and it slipped by the low side of the cup. This proves that no matter how short the putt, you must accelerate the club through the ball. To get the feel of the proper stroke, practice from short range, taking the putter back only half as far as normal and exaggerating the follow-through by keeping the putter face on line and moving the blade straight toward the cup. This practice can work wonders in restoring your putting stroke and confidence. E Si Woo Kim
