THE FAULT

Tiger was the best putter in the game for years. He never missed an eight-footer when something was on the line. He is now decelerating into the ball. He looks like he is afraid of missing. That deceleration is causing his clubface to open.

THE FIX

Woods should try to take all the hit out of his stroke and go back to making the backstroke and the forward stroke the same speed and the same distance. He used to release the putter with his arms. Now he's not doing that.
