One-Handed Putting Drill

One-Handed Putting Drill

Here is a tip on how to build a better putting stroke for your daughter or your son for that matter. What I do is I get the kids when they are ready for it and I give them this kind of drill. I call it a one handed drill. I am going to have them first of all put their right hand in their pocket and hit a bunch of putts with their left hand only. Left hand only. Now they can go through that entire bucket of balls using nothing but their left hand. Then what I will have them do is go down to the balls and hit them all back here using the opposite hand, they are going to do it right handed. This does a couple of things for them. Number one it is going to give them an idea what role each hand plays in the putting stroke, whether it be the left or the right, but the thing is that once they get both hands on the club and putt a ball they are going to feel like they have total control over that putter. So if you want your son or daughter to become a better putter this is a drill I highly recommend.
