3 Great Putting Drills

According to, there are 29 million golfers alone in the United States. There are more male than female golfers, with 77.5% and 22.5% respectively. With that many golfers in the U.S., it isn’t a surprise that putting is a common part of the game.

Players who learn about golf early on in their golfing playing are more likely to have an advanced understanding of the game.

With the proper techniques, everyone can develop into a solid putter. The following putting drills are designed to improve your ability to hole the ball on the green.

We’re sharing with you:

1. Clock Drill

To begin, place three balls in a line at three, six, and nine feet from the hole similar to the twelve, three, six and nine position on a clock. The goal is make all twelve in a row. If you miss any putt, then go back to the beginning and start over.

2. Ladder Drill

This drill is designed to improve putting from longer distances, as percentages that you’ll make a putt dramatically decrease the further away from the hole. To start, place a tee in the ground in a line: 10, 20, 30 and 40 feet away. Then, hit a putt to the first tee, which is 10 feet away. Next, hit a 20-footer, than 20-footer followed by a 40-foot putt. Your main goal is to get the ball to stop as close to each tee as possible. Next, you should close the latter. From the first tee, hit a 30-foot putt, followed by a 20-foot putt, 10-foot putt to the final tee. Finally, you have successfully opened and closed the ladder. You then continue the drill again by going through the same sequence from the opposite direction.

3. Path Drill

First, find a flat area on the green and place two clubs on the ground wide enough to place the putter head behind the ball. Swing the putter between the two clubs and hit the ball. If the putter hits any of the clubs you are not swinging the putter down to the target line. Always make sure the putter head stays low to the ground and follow through.

In Conclusion

These putter techniques will help you improve your strategy for the game of golf and you’ll develop solid putting skills that you can use for the rest of your life.
