Tournament play? Deal. Casual round? No deal.

I've been in a putting funk for about a month and a half now, missing alot from inside 25'. If or when I break out of it I might answer this differently.

Absolutely. How boring it would be.

Some days it would improve my score, some days it would hurt it, but no days would it be more fun.

No deal.... Really 25' that's practically a drop in.. I probably have a 90 percent plus on that range and at least a 25 percent outside shot from 50' so no dice here. Best deal I'd take might be 45 or 50' but I'm too much of an optimist to give up so easy. JYLY, out.

I didn't think of this. I was just considering scoring better and never having to worry about those iffy 15-25' ones, especially in the wind, or on a hill, death putts....etc.

But yea, canning the occasional 40-50+ footer is sweet, and that joy would be greatly missed.

Having said that...I'd still do it.

no way. my best and most enjoyable rounds are when i can a putt from deep circle 2. after that my confidence is so high they all seem like 20 footers. my son and i compete every week and when he sees the that first long putt go in he usually shakes his head and mutters something like "oh well"cause he knows he's in trouble. yea, i'm that competitive :-)

Long putts are much more rewarding than parking most holes. No deal.

No deal. I may miss a stupid 15'-20' putt but I bang chains from outside more than frequently enough. I get my park game on plenty but some times you just can't plain and simple...especially when the par is above 3.

I would take that deal mainly because a missed 15 foot putt can shatter my confidence and leave me feeling helpless. Nothing aggravates me more than a short missed putt. A grip lock on the tee is a close second.

Through a whole lot of practice, I'm pretty money from 25 and in most days. Even at 30 feet, I might not take the deal although it might improve my scores. If you made it 35 feet I'd almost certainly take it.
