Narrow Your Focus
You need to more accuracy around the green.
Golfers often fail to take enough club around the green for fear of overshooting it. When in doubt, chose more club and simply increase the loft if you still have your doubts.
Go to the golf course early to get a feel for your short shots and how they are rolling on the practice green. Instead of thinking about just getting the ball onto the green or getting it close to the hole, think of the green as being in different sections. Mentally divide the green into halves or thirds to narrow your focus and to help you read the green better to predict how the ball will land. Select a section of the green that you feel will give you a good roll such as the backside or left side.
