Putting Drills for Distance Control
Posted 11 July 2018 - 08:13 AM
2) set up four tees , a set of two at each end 5’ or so apart( like end zone lines on a football field). Putt from one “line” to the other, closest to line gets point , play to 10. Usually best on a slight slope so one way is down hill and the other is uphill. Vary distance accordingly. You can adjust rules accordingly- I.e points only count if within a grip legnth of line, or pints only count if past the line (to encourage not leaving short!)
This is super simple but has helped my son, again it is a competition.

Put an alignment stick 3 ft. behind a cup. Start balls in a line at 10ft, 15ft, 20ft, 25ft, 30ft, 35ft, 40ft, 45ft, 50ft. Player needs to call what the ball is going to do with their head down after the putt. Left long, right short, in the hole, etc. Through 25 ft the ball must go past the hole. Birdie if it goes in. Par if it is between the cup and stick. Bogey if it is short or past the stick. At 30 ft. you move the alignment stick to 4ft past the hole. Same rules apply through 50 ft but they get 1 ft in front of the cup as well. Goal is to be at +2 or better. Love this drill because it works on spacial awareness which I think is huge for teaching distance control.

Put 4 balls down at varying distances and spots on green - closest one one about 10’ , other three vary on how hard you want to make it. You have 7 putts to hole all balls out. Puts pressure on making at least 1, and others can be 2 putts. Lately this has been the last game we do to wrap up practice. My son has learned to save the close one for last.
