One Handed Putting Drill

Many players struggle with getting a putt started on the correct line. A very simple one-handed putting drill has help many students get the feeling and master the mechanics of what is to happen in a consistent putting stroke.

There are multiple reasons for using this easy putting drill including
1. Students are able to feel that they are pulling the club through impact and not pushing the club through impact
2. Students can feel more of the swing of the putter
3. Students can better feel the ball against the club face at impact.

This putting drill is very simple to do and you will immediately gain feedback that you help you to improve. Go to a practice putting green and select a hole location. You would like for the hole location to be fairly flat or even slightly uphill. Drop a coin or place a tee into the green just two feet away from the hole. Yes, just two feet.

Next you will want to place a ball close to your mark or tee and take your grip and stance as if you were going to stroke the putt. This includes taking your normal putting grip. Once you are set, simply place your hand closer to the hole on your hip, in your pocket or behind your back. You will want to note your shoulder placement or alignment and you will not want it to change from your original set up position. Hint…Many students find that their shoulder alignment is way off! In addition, you will want to make sure that the palm of the hand that is still on the club matches or is equal to the putter face, meaning that they are both pointing in the same direction. On a straight putt, this should be at the hole.

With only one hand on the club, you should really be able to feel the weight of the putter during your stroke. This should allow the club to move in a natural back and through motion. This is one of the reasons that you want to do this putting drill from just two feet. From this distance you will not feel that you have to help and/or manipulate the club to get the ball to the hole. As you begin your forward swing, you should feel what is called lag on the pad of your index finger closest to your palm. This will confirm that you are pulling and not pushing the putter.

Many students are surprised how different impacting the ball feels and what they can learn from it. Solid impact is needed to put the ball on line. However, if you are not stroke the ball solidly, it is very difficult to hit two putts the same speed or distance too! Who knew you could learn so much form striking a two foot putt?

After reading this article, you know that by using the one handed putting drill to improve your putting stroke, you can not only improve your distance and your direction!
