  2. The old saying drive for show, putt for.....
  3. A saying that should probably be left in the past! haha! I think its been shown now, with strokes gained, that more players lose shots off the tee than putting on the green.

    Putter toe against the wardrobe and slide back and forth , trying to keep the toe onto the wardrobe, which keeps the stroke straight and I’ve also got a putting mat in the house

    I use a PuttOut device in my lounge and have x4 different length putts I can practice in that area - 6ft, 10ft, 15ft, 20ft. Anything over that I can do on the putting green.

    When on the putting green I play 2-3 balls on each of the 9 holes with the aim of sinking them all in 2 shots or less, these range from 15ft - 60ft putts.
  9. Yeah I enjoy an indoor putt.

    One area everybody struggles is not getting the putts to the hole and leaving them short.
    Good drill/game on the putting green is.. firstly i set out the course normally 9 holes. Aim is to go around in the least number of shots, if I leave my 1 putt short of the hole I have to take it back the lenght of my putter ever if it is just an foot short, if it goes a foot past on my 1st shot I play the 2nd from where it landed. The aim is to make me get it to the hole or past it.
    I found I am making alot more 1 putts and getting the ball past the hole increasing my chances of making the putt. The putt back is easier because i can see the line while it goes past the hole.
    My confidence over 3 to 4 footers had improved also.
  11. So I got out on Saturday after about 3 weeks of no play but plenty of putting practice in the house, wow what a difference!
    I was getting a bit board with the putting indoors but it paid off!
    18 holes and not more than a 2 putt for the whole round! probably a 60/40 split of 1 and 2 putts.
    Was over the moon as usually I get at least 5/6 holes of 3 putts a round

    My Scotty comes in the house after each round and cleaning. My Puttout trainer is in my office and I try and pick up the Scotty each time I enter/leave the room and practice some 2-3 footers until I get a couple of the perfect putts.

    Weekly I'll work with the full Puttout studio, Trainer, mat, mirror and gates. I'll do the 100 putts from 6ft and then the perfect putt challenge. My best so far is 30 putts.

    Before each round I work on distance control and like to find a slightly uphill putt with minimal break. At my home course I have a putt of 7 paces and I putt until I'm happy with the pace and then do a couple of long putts to different holes (never two in a row to same target). Then I do a hole out drill of three balls of 2, 4 and 6 paces apart on the same line. I go through my full pre shot routine on these and do this until I hole all three or three times min.

    Currently averaging just shy of 33 putts a round on all courses played (25 different courses last year 12 never played before)

    Pet hate is those who thing the putting green in a course and putt from hole to hole (often with several balls) as these get in the way of those actually practicing with some purpose...
