Great program. Saw some dividends yesterday at a new course. Started off with a long putt to save bogey on hole 1, followed by a long birdie 2. Confidence dropped after that for a a few holes but then something great happened.

I was playing a course (Bucksnort DGC in Pine, CO whose baskets were always well guarded or oddly placed enough to not allow my "normal" putt. On one of the later holes I managed to drive to a spot that, while well outside my confidence practice range, had a clear look at the basket. Before taking the shot I felt actual excitement for getting to run at the basket (and this is mainly the result of practicing these shots so much). I ended up draining that putt and it felt great.

Point is - This program is helping right now. I kept a separate scorecard for myself and marked "good" putts with an X and "bad" putts with an O. I ended up with more X's than O's, and I attribute that to better confidence.
