Hopefully, you enjoyed last week’s clock drill to try at home – if you didn’t see it, you can find it underneath this article. Carrying on with the putting theme, this week’s drill has been designed to improve the consistency of your stroke.
What you'll need
All you'll need to give this drill a go is your putter (no surprise there!), a golf ball, some tees and a mug.
Start off by finding a straight putt somewhere in your house. Place the mug down at one end with the open top facing towards where you’re going to be putting from. This is your make-shift hole.
Then, take a few paces away from the hole and put your ball down. Grab your putter and address the ball as if you were about to hit a putt. Whilst your putter is down, place a tee upside down on the floor either side of the head (green tees in image). This is your gate. The idea is to make your stroke without hitting either of the tees.
Make it harder
If you find this easy then great, it means that you’re returning the putter to the middle of the ball.
To make things harder, give yourself a longer putt, reduce the distance between the two tees surrounding the putter or add some more tees at a ball's width halfway down the putt.
