To link the pace and line of the putt
Aiming the putter on your intended start line
Rolling the ball on your intended startline
Putting is nearly half of all strokes every round and the putter is used 2-3 times more often than the driver or the wedge. And putting has FOUR skills, not just the stroke as usually taught, and these four skills must be integrated with instinctive touch and stroke timing -- Read, Aim, Stroke, and Touch. Historically, however, golf instruction scarcely concerns itself with putting, and most of the skills for putting have not been understood in terms of how body perceptions and movements cause good or bad performance. A comprehensive survey of golf instruction from 1880 to today reveals only one obscure, privately printed book on how to read putts, and no significant effort to comprehend and teach how touch or aiming actually work in the human brain and body. Golf instruction is still 95% full-swing only, and the 5% for putting is vague, inconsistent, repetitive, and almost entirely based in pseudo-science of alien expertise ill-applied to putting skills by dilettante enthusiasts without teaching knowledge of the skills, with imagined notions of what helps when science actually proves the claimed benefits are ill-founded and illusory. Numbers and computers and Latinate terminology always impress golfers as scientific, but in golf these claims of science are usually devoid of real science or vastly overblown and in fact not soundly applied to the real skills of the human body in the act of performing putting skills.
