Putt to the edge of the green

Use the edge of the putting green to your advantage. Firstly, you need to make sure that you are striking your putter out the middle. This can be made easier with a smooth and consistent stroke. If you aren’t sure about how consistent your putting stroke is, then feel free to book a lesson with me by calling 01983 613131.

You will need 6 balls for this drill. You will place two golf balls at 3 stations (10ft, 15ft & 20ft) and if you wish to start further back then feel free, but the idea is to putt the balls towards the edge of the putting green and get the ball to stop as close as you can to the edge. This then gets you focusing on purely your distance control and not so much about the line, which will therefore improve your feel on the greens.

IF you can practice this for 10 minutes every time you visit your golf club, you will see your pace putting vastly improve!

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you have a good week’s golf.
