Putting Inside 25 Feet? Try This Semi Circle Drill

Practice makes perfect when it comes to putting and having the right arsenal of drills could totally change your game. So what do you need to work on when putting inside of 25 feet? This is where we want to be aggressive and focus on getting the ball to the hole.

It has been talked about often that 18 inches past the cup is the optimal speed for a golf ball to go into the cup. Unlike the longer distance putts where two putting is the focus, we want to start making some of these putts to separate us from our mates. Setup your 18-inch semi-circle around a hole using 5 tees. Place a tee at 15, 20, and 25 feet. Use four golf balls starting at 15 feet. The aim is to score zero or better before moving back a tee, recording your attempts from each tee up to five. Use the following point system: -1 point for leaving the ball short of the hole, 0 points for inside the semi-circle, and 1 point for making the putt.

As a former touring pro, I know which drills really do the trick. This points game should help you take your game to the next level, especially when putting inside 25 feet.
