Golf Putt Hangs On The Lip For Eight Lifetimes Before Dropping In

Thank God that went in. Thank. God. Because that’s the sort of thing where, if it doesn’t go in, it’s hard to have a good weekend. Not for Rafa Cabrera-Bello; for us. For everyone who watched it. That putt will sit in your mind like a pebble in your shoe for days. In the same way that some people can’t handle when the volume of a TV is set to 19 or some non-factor of 5, I can’t handle putts that end up on the lip but don’t drop. It eats at me. It leaves me discomfited. I get fussy.

I still wake up in a cold sweat over this Tiger putt from the 2018 PGA championship:

It still doesn’t make sense to me. Why didn’t he just wait a little longer? All we needed was for a train to rumble by in the distance, and that things trembles in.

Anyway. Hit ’em straight this weekend!
