Better Putting Blueprint Series – Lesson 6, Make More Short Putts

In lesson six of the Better Putting Blueprint series I share some wonderful short putting drills that accomplish a couple of key things that will guarantee you will make more short putts. 

These drills allow you to replicate some of the skills you will need on the golf course by asking you to hit each putt form a different location, so although the putts may be the same length each is slightly different in terms of speed and break. You can score your current skills and benchmark them against players of your same handicap or compare your scores to the handicap you would like to achieve. The scoring also allows you to track your progress over time.
