Golf Putting Drills

Although there is discussion about which element is more important, driving the ball or putting the ball, statistically, putting is the most important part of the game. Golf putting drills will help you shoot lower scores. Many players will say that you can hit one bad drive and make the stroke up with a good putt. However, if you hit one bad putt, the stroke is gone and you cannot “make it up.” No matter your handicap, you will shoot lower scores if you can improve your putting.
Putting is the most vital aspect within the game of golf and no professional has ever played a good round of golf putting poorly…ever. There is nothing more frustrating than playing a decent round of golf only to end the day with a lousy score because of the number of missed putts.
Now that you have delegated time to practice your putting, how can you best use your practice time to improve your putting? Since putting is dependent on distance and line you will need to decide which one needs more works. Hint…more than likely it is getting the ball on the correct line. At worst getting the ball to start on the correct line will enable you to make more of the shorter putts that you feel you “should” make. Here is a couple of golf putting drills to make sure that you are on the right line (I know that is a bad pun haha).

Two-Foot Drill 
This may sound too easy but it has help many of our students of all skill levels. Yes, even the better players. Drop a mark two feet away from the hole. You will want to find a level putt or a putt that goes slightly uphill and begin to make putts! Everyone can make it form two feet…right? Well, most of the time. No matter your skill level, you want to take away two things from this drill. First, it is an easy putt so you will (should) keep seeing the ball go into the hole. This should boost your confidence. Second, even though the ball is going in the hole, are you holing the putt in the center of the cup? More than likely, it will not. From two feet you can get away with this but take it out to even just four or six feet and the same stroke could produce a miss.

Tee Drill 
If you are struggling with the two foot drill, then you should try the tee drill. Take two tees and place one on the outside of your putter or toe of your putter and the other on the inside of the putter also known as the heel of the putter. You will give yourself a little room on each side depending on your skill level. As you take a putting stroke, stop the putter at the tees to evaluate where the face of the putter is pointing. It will directly relate to the direction that you were missing putts using the two foot drill.

Are You Taking Putting Lessons?

For some reason students seem reluctant to take putting lessons. I do not quite understand this as improving your putting is the fastest way to lower your scores.


I think that students do not want to take putting lessons for a couple of reasons…
Doing work on the range trying to hit the ball far and straight feels and sounds sexier and more fun than improving your putting with a putting drill. Many players like to compare themselves by how far they can hit not only the driver but also their irons. I always preferred to have the lowest score at the end of the round and collect my winnings. I figured that was impressive enough!People in general do not like to do things that they are not good at. I am guilty of this myself with my putting. Why go and get frustrated on the practice putting green when I can go to the driving range to hit good shots that I know that I can hit? Many times ego gets in the way.Another reason is one that actually does not fall on the student but the instructor.…

Putting Drills - Are They All Good?

Many golfers want putting drills to help them improve their stroke and get the ball in the hole faster. Many golfers will hear that a friend used a golf putting drill that helped them and make the mistake that the same drill will help them too. Here are a few reasons why it does not work that way and what you should be looking for to find the best putting drills to improve your game.


Learning Styles
There are three major learning styles auditory, feel and visual. Auditory would be that the way that you best consume information is hearing it. For example, an instructor can simply tell you to do something different, you hear it and you can do it. Learning through feel you have to be able to feel the new movement before you can begin to learn it. Most golfers are visual and like to be shown something and then try to repeat it. One is not better than another, it is simply that we are build or wired differently. The putting lesson your friend may have received was for a visual learner. How…

It seems that students have to choose which sport they are going to play at a younger and younger age. With this being said, many camps are full of younger children so you wi…
