Video Golf Tip | Improve Putting Accuracy: Tee Drill

Did you ever wonder how well you putt compared to Tour players? We have a drill here that lets you tell exactly without anyone else commenting on it. We have taken about half the cup away by placing two tees in front of it. We are going to have Kim sort of die the ball over the left lip right into the center of the cup. She can’t touch either of the tees or else it does not count. Kim is a very good putter, so we are going to take another bit of the cup away from her by adding a third tee. We are going to make her die it right over the edge; there is not a lot of room for mistake here. After you do this for a while take the three tees away and I guarantee you that cup is going to look like a bushel or basket and you will make a whole lot more putts. Remember put two tees in front of the cup; take half of the hole away from yourself. After you have had some success doing that then add a third tee. After you have had an opportunity to make a few putts doing that then you want to take the tees away. Psychologically that hole is going to look huge to you. I guarantee you this little drill will improve your putting dramatically.
