Putting Speed for Juniors

Other videos in the series Putting with Ty Anderson:

As I have mentioned before, putting is no more than distance and direction. We have covered direction in a separate video and now what we are going to talk about is distance, which is nothing more than controlling your putts. Developing a sense of feel. Now how are going to develop that sense of feel. There is a little drill that I give all my golfers to do and I am going to have Luke here demonstrate what it is. I am going to ask Luke to take three balls and set up to the first ball and wherever you hit the first ball I want you to follow it up by hitting the other two balls the same distance. Go ahead. Pull that second ball up. Now pull the third ball up. Luke did great. All three of those balls are pretty will grouped together. Now if he continues on with what he is doing he can walk over there to the three balls and do the same thing. He can go all around the green doing this. But wherever he hits the first ball his goal is to hit the other two balls the same distance. If he does that for a while he will start to develop a feel for the different distances. This is going to help us out later on when we combine that with the direction and really show you what putting is all about.

Short Shot Variations Be more creative around the green by practicing different clubs and shots to the same pin location to improve your short game
Pull Cures Pulled shots come from a closed clubface or the path swing, most players suffer from the latter as they start their downswing with their shoulders causing their path to go to the left
Practicing Impact Location Your impact should start right at the ball and the lowest point of the divot should be ahead of impact, use this bunker drill to practice impact to develop consistent shots
