It’s only logical that we all work hard to hit our approach shots as close to the hole as possible. The closer the ball is to the hole the better chance we have to not only make the putt, but to also avoid 3 putting.

Despite our best efforts, in almost every round you play you are going to have one or more putts of 40 feet or more. These situations can quickly result in you taking more than 2 putts to get the ball in the hole and before you know it you have unnecessarily thrown away strokes.

In this skills test we are going to look at your ability to get the ball close to the hole, or even make the putt, from more that 40 feet. If you are able to get down in no more than two putts from this length, you will keep your round on track and you’ll be on your way to a lower score.

Try the skills test below to see how good you are at these distances. If you score worse than you believe you should then you probably need to spend more time working on this area of your putting. You will also probably need to talk with your golf coach to figure out any technical reasons why these putts are giving you trouble.
