Default You never miss another putt inside 25' but you never make another putt outside 25'.

Would you take that deal? What's the closest distance you'd say yes?

That's pretty much my game anyway, lol…


Well... except about 1/5 rounds its the opposite. I make a bunch of 30-40fters and keep front rimming 15s...

I would take this deal in a heartbeat. I think maybe 20 feet or less would be harder to take.

I'm gonna need more information.

Where does the never make any more outside of 25' stop? Do you mean just shots that use a putter or does that mean you cant have aces or make shots from the fairway?

I changed my mind. No deal. Ever.

To fully lose the sense of anticipation on every long putt, and the occasional feeling when one does go in.... no way.
Part of the thrill is not knowing the outcome.

In times past, I have been in a place where a 25' putt was a reasonable certainty for me. However, to get there, I practiced 100 putts a day (and often way more than that) for almost a year straight.
It amazed me how difficult the putt became when you added just 5 or 10 more feet.

So, yeah, I'd take that deal.
