Quiet eye secret to a better golf putt

Studies by staff from the University’s School of Sport and Health Sciences have shown that focusing your eye on exactly the right spot at the right time can be vital to success in sinking the ball.
Their research has shown how using a technique known as the ‘Quiet Eye’ can help golfers of all abilities to improve their putting accuracy, stay cool under pressure and hole more crucial putts.
So what’s quiet eye?
When lining up a putt, experts alternate quick fixations between the ball and the hole. Then before and during the stroke they hold a steady fixation on the back of the ball, for around 2-3 seconds. After contact with the ball the eyes remain steady for a further half a second. This technique was named the Quiet Eye.
