Video Golf Tip | Competitive Short Putt Drill

When you practice golf there are two types of practice, fundamental practice, where you work on your fundamentals, and competitive practice, where you practice like you play. I am going to share with you are putting drill for short putts that is more competitive practice in a plain environment. What I have done here is I have four tees on the ground and how I have set this exercise up is I have taken my putter, which is 34 inches long, and added two inches. I have done that on the first leg, the second leg, the third leg and the fourth leg. The objective to this game is to set a ball up at the three foot, four foot and five foot positions based on the tee I have put in the ground, and you are going to hit the three foot putt, the four foot putt and the five foot putt and then you are going to do it on the next leg, the next leg and the next leg. If you go one time around that is twelve putts. You might want to go two times around, but the objective is to pick a target score. So if I go around one time I might pick a target score of 10 out of twelve putts that I have to make before I move on to another drill. So I am going to set up and hit the three foot putt first, then I am going to move back and hit the four foot putt, then I am going to move back and hit the five foot putt. So I have missed one and now I can only miss one more for this exercise. Now what I am going to do is pick my three balls up, go to the next leg, the next leg and the next leg, get a total of those putts and now I am practicing more like I play.

Waggle Before You Swing Waggling loosens your arms, paces your swing and helps practice swinging the club on the correct plane
Controlling Impact with Short Clubs With your shorter irons, concentrate on keeping your weight over your front leg on the backswing to eliminate any sway that leads to an inconsistent impact
Turning Your Body Turn your body, not your shoulders, in the swing to create a coiling effect in order to generate more power
