Adopt a practice routine to make short putts routinely
Too many golfers suffer from "the yips": missing putts of 3' or less due to anxiety or a slipshod putting technique. The fix is to practice these putts, which you will never avoid during a round. Go to a green, take 5-6 balls, and arrange them in a circle about 3' from the cup, with their logos pointing toward the hole. For each ball, read the putt, commit to the read, and make the stroke. When you complete all six, repeat the drill from 4' out to 5' if you like, giving you a routine to instill confidence and hone your stroke.
