Golf Practice - 5 Places To Practice Your Golf Game Away From The Course

When most people think of golf practice, they automatically shift their focus to the practice area usually referred to as the driving range at a golf facility. When in actuality, there are many options to practice without going to a golf course or standalone practice facility. Here are five places that you can sharpen your skills that does not require being at a golf course…

Outside your House 
Improving your golf game was popular even before Bubba Watson started creating golf courses around his house while he was growing up. Depending on the size of your property, you may be able to create short fun holes around your house. Of course you will want to take into account your current skill level and where windows are located as you design you masterpiece. The great part about this is that it allows you to use your imagination not only developing the golf course but while playing it as well.

Inside your House 
Checking the heights of your ceilings will determine what you are actually able to do with your full swing with a golf club inside your house. If you have room, it is a great place to use mirrors and check positions and match them with what you see in your minds eye and contrast that to what you are actually feeling.
Many golfers have putting greens or putting mats in side of their house. You can buy a putting mat that is very inexpensive or you can really spend as much as you want to spend depending on the experience that you want to have. The fastest way to lower your scores is to improve your putting stroke. By purchasing even a low end putting mat, you can work on putting mechanics and not have to drive to the golf course.

At Work 
Of course this will depend on what you do for a living. If you have your own office you can install a putting green in your office or use a roll up putting mat to give you extra golf practice time during your lunch break or to clear your head in the middle of the afternoon. It is understandable if this is not feasible for you. However, doing some golf fitness stretches may be another idea that you could use to improve your game away from the course.

In the Car 
As many of us sit in heavy traffic during the long daily commute to our job, there are different options to listen to than just the local radio or sports talk show. You can listen to tapes and/or CDs as you make your commute. With newer technology, you can select one of many golf podcasts that are available. Most are free and you will want o use the same criteria when selecting a good podcast as you would to find a golf instructor.

At the Gym 
The gym is a great place to work on your golf game. Many gyms offer classes for various forms of yoga and similar classes that will help you with your flexibility as well as your core strength. As you look for golf exercises or a personal golf trainer, these are the two facets that you will want to work on and address in your fitness plan.

3 Putting Drills To Improve Your Putting

I want to improve my putting. I want some putting drills to help me improve my short putts as well as my lag putts. My trouble is a get bored fairly easy on the putting green so any putting drills that can be incorporated into games with my buddies would be great. Here are some of the best putting drills that we often use to help our students improve their putting:

Lag Drill 
When it comes to putting for distance, we all tend to miss longer putts more short and long as opposed to right and left. This is one of my favorite putting drills. Place a tee anywhere where the putting green and fringe meet. Begin by hitting putts from varying distances from 10 to 50 feet towards the tee. The goal is to stop your golf ball as close to the fringe as possible. Challenge a friend or challenge yourself by continuing the putting drill until you can stop so many balls in side of a certain distance. This will be determined by your current skill level.

Pull Back Drill
The pull back drill is one of the g…

Member Question - How To Control Putting Speed

Member Question: I have a hard time with hitting two putts in a row the same speed. Even on the practice green, my putting speed is horrible. I can try to hit a ball about 15 feet and try to hit a second ball to barely touch it. The second ball rarely comes close to being close to the first ball. Sometimes it is long and sometimes it is short. The result is just not consistent. Any putting tips to help me with my putting speed?

Thank you for your question. When students are that inconsistent with speed of putts or distance control, it is typically because they are not hitting the putts solid.

Now, what does that mean in English? In hitting any shot solid it means that you hit the club-face in the same spot on every stroke. If you need to know how to find the sweet spot on your putter, it is easy to do. Simply let take your putter by the grip and let it dangle using only your forefinger and thumb. Next take a golf ball and start tapping the putter face. Once the club head goes straigh…
