Excellent Putting is not about holing every makeable putt. That would be unrealistic. It is about keeping the percentages in your favour. You should strive for excellence, but never expect perfection.
Patchy Conditions on the greens are part of the challenge of golf. The greens have to be maintained and there will be times when the putting surface is less than ideal for the smooth roll of the ball.
