I hate it. I mean, it's really one of the few things that makes me angry. 3 putting.
It's a mental thing. Golf course designers allowed for 2 putts on any green after arriving on the green in regulation. The first putt should be hit as close as you can get it. Don't blast one by the hole because you think you can hole a 40 foot putt. You'll end up 3 putting most times. I know that I do.
A good round for me is one 3 putt. I have to allow for that because I'm a high handicap. But I still get furious when I do it because there is no reason to.
