This part of our newsletter is all about trying to keep your golf game ticking over whilst we’re being told to stay indoors. With putting being such a vital part of lowering scores out on the course (and the easiest to practice at home), we’re going to kick things off with a simple putting drill for you to try.
Grab your putter, six golf balls and a tee peg. Place the tee upside on the ground – this will be your target. From here, measure out a putter’s length from the tee and place a ball down. Repeat this five times at equal distances apart so that you have a circle of golf balls surrounding the tee peg – just like in the image above.
Too easy? Make it harder
Your goal is to go around the circle and hit the tee peg with each putt. However, if you miss, you’ll need to go back and start again – a nice way to mimic some pressure from the golf course. If you complete the circle, keep going until you miss to set yourself a target to beat next time or try increasing the distance of each putt from the tee.
