Finish this Putting Challenge and I’ll be Super Impressed

golf putting drill four stations

I learned this drill when I was back in college playing at Florida Southern.

Lee Janzen, former US Open Champion and FSC alum came back to practice with the team a few times. Lee’s always been an incredible putter, and this was a drill he worked on every day.

There are few reasons why I love this drill:

  1. You don’t hit the same putts over and over again
  2. You’re simulating real golf circumstances
  3. You’re simulating pressure
  4. You’re working on your entire pre-shot routine
  5. It’s a great benchmark for how good your short putting is

Truthfully, you probably won’t appreciate this drill until you try it a few time and realize how frustrating it can be.

If you miss any one of the 24 putts, you have to start all the way back at the beginning. I think you’ve got to be a pretty good short range putter to accomplish this.

Sharpen Up Indoors Over the Winter

So, if you’re up north in the snow, this is a great use of your time indoors. While you’re watching football, grab a coin and see if you can get through this drill before the 4th quarter ends. You’ll be super sharp when the snow melts.

Message me if you’re able to accomplish this drill…I want to keep a short list of top putters in the crowd in case I’m short a player in my next scramble.

Cheers.
