Putting Drill Requirements: Flat area of putting green (10m x 3m), 4 tee pegs, putter, 15 – 20 golf balls.
Aim: To fit as many golf balls as possible into the rectangle. Position yourself on a flat piece of green, 10m x 3m, and mark out a rectangle as seen in diagram 1, using tee pegs for each corner.
Begin by putting your first ball as close as you can to the far left tee peg. Your second ball will then go to the front right peg, making it as close as possible, while keeping in the rectangle.
The third putt must go past the second ball, in the same direction as the first, but not past it. The fourth ball will go past two, but not past ball three. The balls should be making an approximate diagonal line between the two tee pegs. Continue this exercise until you can’t fit any more into the rectangle.
