Putting: Is it that difficult?

I was watching some highlights of a tournament from somewhere in America yesterday, and one constant thing that always puzzles me (along with how anybody can get be the least bit excited about this sport, and how so many fans and players of it can all have such crap looking clothes) is how can the worlds best golf players miss a five foot putt? Now I am willing to be educated on this. But it never used to pose a problem for me on the pitch n' putt at Batley Park when I was eight years of age. Is there that many fine and subtle slopes around the golf hole that the cameras don't pick up? I have never played golf so this is a mystery to me. If any of you golfers can enlighten me I would appreciate it.

And can you make sure that when you enter this thread, that your attire is suitable. Sports blazers and slacks are acceptable, but no rolled up shirt sleeves in the clubhouse please. FFS!

Good point well made Fuzzface. It was a couple of clips on a round up on Sky Sports.

The greens on tournament courses will be about 10 times faster than your local pitch and putt, Dock. As measured on the old Stimp meter  - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stimp_meter - so long story short, you could be there circling the hole for 5 minutes on one of those bad boys.

Cheers Seal.

Is that some kind of jail lingo? Because this isn't that kind of thread. And unroll those shirt sleeves. This thread has club rules y'know.

If it was easy we'd all be out there earning great money for such a great life.,

5 footers are bastards, they're neither here nor there.

I would have thought that Mr Dock was considerably shorter than 5 foot!
