Golf Drill: Long Uphill Putts

February 18, 2013

Avoiding the dreaded three-putt

Although it seems that long, uphill putts would be the least of a golfer’s worries, it is important to get the ball close to the hole so as to avoid a costly 3-putt.

Viewing the putt from the side will give you a good feel for what the slope of the putt looks like.

When you return to your ball, take a few practice strokes, keeping in mind the length and pace of the putt. Making solid contact with the ball will allow for the most control in distance.

Getting the ball close to the hole is most important when negotiating a long putt, and will give you the best chance at making your following putt.
