The 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 feet Putting Drill!

So, you want to get really good at those short to medium putts?

Here’s a drill me and many pros use to get really, really good at these types of putts.

First, you will need 5 golf balls.

Second, find a completely flat lie with no breaks on the putting green.

Third, set the golf balls 3 feet, 5 feet, 10 feet, 15 feet, and 20 feet from the hole.

Next, start with the 3 footer and if you make it, go to the next 5 feet and so on until you can finish all five.

Here’s the trick though, if you miss any of them, you have to start over.

Once you’ve done that, find a right-to-left breaking lie and do the drill again.

Once you’ve done that, find a left-to-right breaking like and do the drill again.

When I used to practice everyday, I used to do this on a daily basis.

What does this do?

It gets you trained really well for those distances and get your putts more consistent.

Also, don’t overdue it, if it’s not your day, you are not going to make a lot of them, set a “limit” (such as 30 minutes) for this putting drill.

Try it, this will help your short to medium putts tremendously.
