THE TWO WAYS TO WORK ON YOUR PUTTING

Golf Australia - - PRE-SUMMER PRIMER -

GROOVE YOUR FEEL AND DIS­TANCE CON­TROL

Don’t spend your prac­tice putting time be­fore a round aim­lessly strik­ing putts. Use your warm-up to get your­self into ‘real-life’ putting mode. Grab five balls and find a putt of about 20 feet. Hit the first ball half way. Hit the next ball past the first but short of the hole… and so on. Your goal is to keep all five balls in play. This will quickly give a good feel for speed.

RECRE­ATE THOSE PRES­SURE PUTTS

When­ever you work on the me­chan­ics of your stroke, al­ways try to sim­u­late the pres­sure of play­ing for real. A great drill is to place balls around the hole, four or five feet away, and then aim to sink each one. If you miss, you ei­ther start the drill again or you take you pun­ish­ment – some push-ups, for ex­am­ple!
