Video Golf Tip | PGA Pro Putting Drill

I am going to share with you a putting drill that many of my PGA and LPGA students use. All you need is three golf balls, three tees, then go to a putting green and pick two different lengths of putts. The first one I have set up is a 10-foot putt and the second one is a 20-foot putt. All I am going to do is put one tee in the ground to illustrate my starting point, then I am going to go over to the 10-foot putt and put my putter in the back of the hole, and put the second tee in the ground right at the end of my grip to give me my safe zone. Then I go to the second hole which is the 20-foot putt and I am going to put the putter down and put the tee in the ground for my safe zone again. The objective to this exercise is that you want to alternate your putts, so I am going to go one to the 20-footer, then to the 10-footer, then back to the 20-footer. I am going to pick a target score and I want to get seven consecutive points in a row, and also you want to pick a number of makes that you are going to get. So with seven I want to make one and get seven points, and in this drill you get one mulligan or one miss. So let’s give it a go. I am going to set up for my 20-foot putt and I am going to hit it, and there was a good one because I made it, so I have one point plus a make. Now I am going to go to my 10-foot putt, set up and hit it. Now I have two points because I am at the tee in the ground behind the hole, I almost missed that one. Now I am going to set up for my third shot, alternating shots and that one was good. After you get your target score of seven consecutive points, continually go and see how far you can push yourself. What is nice about this exercise is that you can start to get personal bests. Maybe you start out at seven points, then you get up to 12 points. I have some LPGA and PGA players that get up to 35 points or more. Doing this exercise will improve your speed control and make you a better putter.
