Default Writing on putter

Is this a problem?

Player is inside the circle putting. He begins his routine with two putters like many players. 10 seconds in, he steps off his lie and places putter #2 upside down on the ground in front of him, then resumes his routine. As he is readying to putt, you notice he has notes written on the underside of putter #2, which he is clearly reading during the putting routine. He completes the routine and putts within the allotted 30 seconds.

Thoughts?

It's not a test, he/she is allowed to read from their notes.
I think it's a good idea even though I've never done it, but I putt with black discs so that wouldn't work anyway.

Other than a potential excessive time penalty if a slow reader, I can't think of any rule that is being infringed by a player consulting notes.

Not a bad idea really if it is a matter of centering your thoughts. I play fast when I play casually, and that means putting through the routine fast because I have no stress of making that putt. If I miss, no big deal. Conversely, when it matters most during league or tournament, sometimes I wonder if my routine is then too fast and I am not concentrating enough. In the ideal conditions in my basement, I can nail over 90% of my putts from 25 feet, and most everyone knows this, it does not translate to the course. Maybe a written affirmation to slow myself down and not forget what does work during practice would be a good thing when I am playing seriously.

Probably easier to just write his prayers on an armband like NFL quarterbacks.
