Un­for­tu­nately, this means we

of­ten cut our putting prac­tice short or don't bother with it at all! With a few tees and ball of wool you can cre­ate a huge va­ri­ety of games that will help to keep things a lit­tle more in­ter­est­ing and keep you on that putting green for longer.

01: To set up the most ba­sic dis­tance con­trol game us­ing wool/string, start with a sin­gle piece of string tied around two tees that are pushed into the ground. This takes the hole out of the task which is hugely ben­e­fi­cial when prac­tic­ing dis­tance con­trol, as when the hole is there it tends to be­come our fo­cus. The goal with the sin­gle line of string is to stop the ball as close to the line as pos­si­ble from dif­fer­ent dis­tances. A ball stopped right on the line would be the per­fect speed con­trol.
