In this weeks post I join Kevin Lyles to talk about some drills he uses to help his putting. I greatly recommend trying these out to help improve your golf game.

Drill 1- The Gate Drill

For a five foot putt one of the most important aspects is to get the ball rolling on your line. Place two tees just bigger than the width of the ball about 1 foot in front of the ball on the line of your putt. Attempt to start the ball in-between the tees and watch your ball fall in the cup at the appropriate speed.

Drill 2- Circle Drill

Place 6 balls in a 3 ft. circle around the hole. Then attempt to make each putt with the appropriate amount of speed and break. The circle encourages each putt to look different and allows you to practice left to right, right to left, and straight putts. To make this drill more challenging try making 6 balls in a row from a 3 ft circle, a 4 ft. circle, and then a 5 ft. circle.
