WHY YOU ARE MISSING PUTTS WITH THE FLAG STICK IN: It's very simple. It's because of a combination of Isaac Newton's second law of motion where a body will move in a straight line until acted up, and Charles De Coulomb's Law of Magnetism, where like charged objects will repel each other. To the casual observer, if a putt is missed you most likely misread the green. However, the real reason is both the golf ball and the flag stick often have like charges, so when the ball gets close to the flag stick, due to the forces of nature the ball will veer away. Which leads to the following axiom: "Golf is fun, the other half is putting."
