None other than the great Jack Nicklaus will tell you getting the short putts in consistently will take pressure off your entire game. He shared his thoughts in a fascinating article in Golf Digest in 1980 after he won the U.S. Open at -- you guessed it -- Baltusrol following a winless streak.

I happen to have a copy of that article and it had a tremendous impact on my teaching over the years. Check out the tip for a very quick way to get yourself to the next level.

Enjoy the game again,

P.S. My very best to George's family. George, a regular student who enjoyed learning the game again, passed away last Wednesday. We'll miss him.
