I failed to think about the Pro vs Amateur Status aspect , I appreciate you pointing that out! I will now go back to practicing putting as that is the only way I can have a chance against 971 rated players, j/k
Don't be scared now. "Fear of any kind is the number one enemy of all golfers, regardless of ball-striking and shot-making capabilities." -Jack Nicklaus. The only difference between your average 900 rated golfer and your 970 rated golfer is the confidence that they will or won't make the shot. but... a little putt practice never hurts.
