Good luck this coming year and I hope I get to compete with you when I get my mental game and consistency down.

first off who are you trying to impress? when you shoot that far off you average your trying to hard for some reason. you know what you can do now get out there and do it. another thing i think that is a huge factor is being prepared for a event, practice leading up to the event is huge. try something simple like that then you will start to narrow down your own problem easier

Paul, my apologies if this has been asked before, but what are the most overstable putter and midrange in your bag, and what shots do you use them for?

I'm having some putting issues and wondering if you can give me some general advice... Playing 2 years...seem to be close to going pro except for putting issues...solid from inside 20 but don't seem to get enough power from 25 to 40...thought about slowing down the putt to use more legs but missing right every time now...I'm lost now

Thanks,
CJ

Any tips on rollers? What disc/plastic/ weight do you use? Going to pull a weezy and 3peat at the memorial this year?
