Putting Drills

I say it ALL OF THE TIME…the quickest way to lower your score is to improve your putting. One way to do that is to use a putting drill to improve your stroke. Here are a few different types of drills that different players use:
  • Golf Putting Drills - 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
  • Putting Drills For Beginners – Some beginners are resistant to using drills but what they need to realize is that players of all levels do drills. If you are a little embarrassed to use one… simply get over it because players on every single tour are using them. They are great o provide you with structured learning and obtaining feelings that you may not get otherwise.
  • Fundamental Putting Drills – No matter what you are doing in life, there are always fundamentals that must be followed in order to obtain the goal that you are after. Golf is no different. The good news is that with the use of drills, you will gain the feeling and awareness needed to effectively perform the stroke when playing.
  • Putting Practice Drills – Practice does not always have to be boring! Many drills can be turned into games. This will not only help keep your attention, but it will also put you in some pressure situations that you will face on the golf course as well.
  • Putting Drills Video – When appropriate, having video of you doing a drill can be good to show you the difference from what is happening when you are left to your own efforts. Be sure to keep on task with what you are looking for and do not all of a sudden create other challenges. For example, many amateurs are worried about how they look on video and not on how the stroke went. It is true and it is not just the ladies.
  • Putting Drills with Tees – As soon as you say the word drill, many people see themselves being bound up in some type of contraption. This is not always the case. You can use something as simple and as free as tees to help you create the putting drill that you need to improve your stroke.
  • Mobile Putting Drills – These drills are plentiful as you can find them in barrels on some golf websites. You can use your phone or iPad to come up with these drills to answer the putting woes that you may be experiencing.
  • Putting Stroke Drills – It is called a stroke. If they wanted to call it a hit…they would have. With the proper drill you can actually feel a stroke instead of a hit or a pop. With today’s maintenance practices, the ball must be stroked to allow it to roll. Creating a consistent stroke will also allow you to contact the ball with the same place on the face of the putter which will result in better distance control.
  • 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.

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…

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.…

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…
