    Onscreen text: Putting: Visualization Michael Block PGA Professional

    Michael Block: All right, so here I have about an eight-, nine-foot left-to-right putt, the same one I had on 18 at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill. And I'm going to give you a couple secrets to my personal putting stroke, so hopefully you can make this when you have this pressure.

    Michael Block: Number one is visualization. I try to picture at what time on the hole the ball is going to go in based on the break I have. Here I've got a left-to-right break, slightly downhill. So I'm going to visualize it going in at 7 p.m. on the hole. So that's my first thought.

    Michael Block: Second is routine that I'm not going to ice myself. I'm not going to stand over it for too long. So as I set up to it, I'm going to take two strokes, visualize it going at seven o'clock, I'm going to set up, relax, and once my left hand hits the grip, I roll the rock. So hopefully that helps you the next time you have that putt for a charity event or the club championship or whatever that might be. And good luck.

    Upbeat music resumes, plays briefly, and ends.
