Putting Exercise: 18in Semi Circle Drill

Inside of 25 feet 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. This points game should help you take your game to the next level.
