Video Golf Tip | Putting Speed for Juniors

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.

Cure For Push Shots: Ball Position Playing the ball too far back in your stance causes you to make contact while the club is still swinging to the right of the target
Controlling Distance: Swing Softly Take swings trying to just hum while keeping the tempo and volume of the hum constant
Three Grip Pressure Points There are several ways to grip the club but there are three constant pressure points that must be observed in order to generate power and keep your lag through the downswing
