Improve Your Accuracy with the 3 Foot Putting Drill

Improve Your Accuracy with the 3 Foot Putting Drill

I have got a way to help you nail those short putts. A few years back Paul Runyan, a former PGA Champion, called me over to the putting green and asked me to do this drill. He knelt down behind the cup and put a tee right at 12 o’clock in back of the cup and he wanted me to hit exactly at 12 o’clock. Not at 11, not at 10, one or two, but at exactly at 12.

How to Practice a 3 Foot Putt

You can imagine if you are making putts from three feet away and there going to the side of the cup, it is a good putt, but you might be missing from four, five or six feet. So if you get a little bit more specific from three feet, maybe you will be able to stretch that out a little further. So from putter length away, let’s see if we can not hit that tee in the back of the cup. You can imagine how good you will be and how many putts you would make if you can be that precise. So if you are making your putts hit the tee from three feet, you will be able to hit them from four, five, maybe even out to 10 feet. Best of luck!
