A gold tour event is in fact a putting contest. The winners are the best putters. To be a good a putter you must learn the right technique. Here are 3 best golf putting drills that are designed to improve your ability to hole the ball on the green.
1. Clock Drill
The first golf putting drill is called clock drill. This golf drill is good to make short putts. The clock drill is used to name this drill because it looks like the position of 3, 6, 9, and 12 of a clock. You just need to put three balls with a distance of 3, 6, and 9 meters from the hole. Consider this number 12 of a clock. Repeat this on the other numbers: 3, 6, 9. The goal in this practice is to make all twelve in a row. If you miss even just one last ball, you have to go back to the beginning and start all over again.
2. Ladder drill
The second golf practice drill is called ladder drill. It is to practice to make short putts inside 5 feet from the hole. This drill is designed to improve putting from longer distances. Place a tee on the ground in one line with the distance of 10 feet, 20 feet, 30 feet, and 40 feet away from the hole. The goal is to make the ball stop as close as possible to the tee. From the first tee, hit a 30-foot putt, followed by 20-foot putt followed by a 10-foot putt to the final tee. After this is done, start it all again with the other direction. It the first is uphill, the second must be downhill putts. This ladder drill will certainly improve your feel on the greens.
3. Path drill
The last drill for golf is path drill which is useful to improve the consistent path. Put two clubs on a flat area, wide enough to to place the putter head behind the ball. Swing the putter between the two clubs before hitting the ball. If your ball hits the clubs, it means your swing is not consistent. Practice until you can hit the balls without making it touch the club.
