Video Golf Tip | Low Putting Stroke Drill
By John Elliott

You might enjoy this, it is a little gambling tidbit that you can make a lot of money on, but before you try to win you better learn how to do it. The reason that I am laying down here on the ground is the only things that are needed to do this are you a putter a quarter and that tee is twelve feet from the hole. The goal is to get the quarter into the hole in six strokes or less. I will bet you anything you can't do it. let me put it to you in other terms. In three years of showing this to people I have paid off one time. My standard bet is if you can get it in the hole in six or less I will give you 10 bucks. I pay real quick. What I want you to do is understand the only two rules, one it has to slide, two, if you whiff it, it counts. You are going to putt it with your putter head, hitting the quarter, sliding it along the ground, and hopefully between here and the hole you will get it in there in six shots. Here we go. One, two, three, four. Now, I want you to know that I just broke my personal best. The best that I had ever done previously was five, but these greens right now are so good, so tight, they are being rolled. If you really want to get somebody do it on a long grainy green and have them go into the grain and then they will have no chance. If it starts tumbling or if it starts rolling you have to put it back from where you just stroked it from and go again counting that stokes. You get six strokes to knock it in. A final word of warning, don't do this with the pin out because if the ball goes into the bottom of the cup it goes down into those little holes and you will never get it out unless you have really, really, really little fingers. Keep the pin in unless you want your friend to lose their quarter. So this is a putting drill with a quarter, six shots, twelve feet, you send me the results on tape and you have done it I will send you 10 bucks guaranteed*. (*Guarantee just a figment of speech, not actually a guarantee, please don't send John tapes)

Cure For Toe Shots: Set Up Many toe shots are caused by setting up too far away from the ball, try this hosel drill to get your set up distance correct
Increasing Distance: Clubhead Speed Create torque between your torso and waist to unwind your body faster and increase clubhead speed
Push and Pull Shots If your divot is pointing straight and your ball is going right or left then your shots are off target because your clubface is opened or closed at impact
