The 3-Footer Putting Drill!

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Last time I talked about the 3, 5, 10, 15, 25 feet putting drill, well there’s another drill that will help you get 100% proficiency rating at short putts.

This is the “infamous” 3-footer putting drill.

First, you find a flat surface on the putting green with no break.

Second, get about 5 golf balls and set it 3-feet from the hole.

Third, Try to see how many you can make in a row. If you miss, you must reset your count back to zero.

Give yourself about 15 minutes everyday (or whenever you practice) to see if you beat your last record.

My record for this on a good week? I would say if you can make about 100 in-a-row, you are pro-level.

And believe me, that’s not easy to do, this is a concentration putting drill that will improve your putting stroke overall too.

If you miss a lot of these 3-footers on the course, it’s TIME to start taking control and never miss them again like the pros.

Simple drill and can save you 5-10 strokes if you are not already making ALL of them.
