Missing short putts is usually cured by a simple strategy: aim for the heart of the chains and give it power (hitting those putts with confidence will give you confidence). I find that over-thinking the 'testers' or easy ones is a good way to miss them. Smash it in that basket instead of tossing it and hoping.

Any advice is appreciated.
