The best kickers convert long attempts with less effort.

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano’s consistent approach allows him to make the 50+ yarders.

A smooth power approach allowed Gano to convert two 50+ yard field goals in a 3 point victory over CAR.

How to build a “smooth power” approach:

                1. Know thyself: what’s your maximum distance when kicking smoothly?
                2. Manage expectations: what’s your target FG yardline or net punting goal?
                3. Build up confidence through failing: what can you learn from missing?
