What is good distance control golf putting drill 2 Lag to an endzone (Video)

So here’s a great putting drill that you can practice either at home or out of the putting green. And it really focuses on the fact that we want good distance control. We’re not really in just getting the ball in, particularly when you’re practicing. It’s just about getting the ball close to a target or close to a distance. What I have done here is I have laid a cane out on the ground. And this is going to simulate where I would be on a putting green. I have lay cane out on the ground and I am going to suggest that’s my back stop. I don’t want to hit the ball too hard that it would hit this. And then I’m going to go ahead and just lay a head cover on the ground. And I am going to place the head cover roughly three feet from my endzone. And now I like to take my putt further and further back. Now observe that I cannot move too far because the camera cannot follow me but I will take my putt further and further back. But my result, I would like to roll the ball down and stop it in the endzone. It should go past the head cover which is effectively representing where the hole would be but I do not want the ball to roll so far that it runs after the endzone and over the cane because that could result in a putt to goes too far past the hole and therefore resulting three putt coming back. So say so, I would putt with this endzone, it’s about a three foot box. It has a marker at the front that tells me where the start of the endzone is or effectively where the hole would be and it has a marker at the end of the endzone that tells me where my three foot beyond line is and if I hit it too far beyond, I’m in trouble. Now, I would then take five balls go back five feet, trying to hit five balls into the endzone. If one of the balls messes, you go back to five balls, five feet and try again. If all five balls are in the endzone, go back to ten feet, five balls down again. If that works, fifteen feet, twenty feet and so on and so on back up the green. Then try turning this around, see if you playing up a slope or turn it around and see if you playing down a slope. And understand how your slope can affect your distance control. And how if you got to a good consistent stroke back and through, you should fairly consistently landing the balls within the endzone. If you got a bit of a deceleration in your stroke, putt will becoming short and not reaching the endzone. If you got a bit of flicking your stroke and a bit of a hit, putt probably began go through the endzone and run too far. Missing the endzone short will result in putt not having a chance of going in. Missing the endzone long is going to result in a lot of three putt by missing the returning putt. So when you’re practicing your distance control, don’t focus on getting the ball into a hole, focus on getting the ball into the endzone. Improve your lag and pace putting will improve your scores.
