Golf Drill: Lag Putts

April 25, 2013

How to Practice Putting Without a Cup

Line up three balls with the goal of stopping them as close to the fringe as you can. The key is to make solid contact and have good length and pace to your putting stroke. If you don’t make good contact, you’ll come up short. If your stroke comes through the ball with too much pace because you used too long of a stroke, you’ll hit straight through the fringe. Somewhere in between those two mishits is the perfect length and pace for your putt.

Use this drill to practice controlling your putting stroke and managing putting distances. Your improved accuracy will help avoid three-putts on the course!

Minnesota PGA Professional Mike Barge demonstrates this golf drill in the video below.
