Video Golf Tip | Short Putt Drill

This is a fun short putting drill called baseball. If you could imagine you’re on a baseball diamond—home plate, first base, second base and third base, with the hole as the pitcher’s mound—the idea of this drill is to make three putts in a row from home plate first of all to go to first base. Once you make three in a row at first base you go to second base. The catch is that if you miss one putt you have to go back a base, so the object of the game is to get all the way around and back to home plate again and then you have completed the drill. You will have made putts under pressure and by the time you get to third base you're going to be feeling the same sort of pressure you feel out on the golf course. It is a great little gambling game with your friends on the golf course as well as on the putting green, and you can spend hours out there having fun on the part of the game that most people don’t enjoy. First putt, second putt, third putt….Now I go to first base. Practice this drill: you’ll have a lot of fun, it’s very exciting and when you’re standing over those three-footers on the golf course, you’ll know you’re going to make them.

Baseball Cross Training Mike started his daughter out playing softball before she moved on to golf. The baseball swing is identical to the one-plane golf swing; the only difference is that in golf the strike zone is on the ground where your ball is.
