PRACTICING PUTTING WITH PRESSURE •At the end of a practice session you have to make 10 5ft putts in a row. *If you succeed, then treat yourself to a soda in the club house. *If you fail, then you have to do 5 push-ups and no soda...BRING IT!
TO AVOID MORE HAZARDS OFF THE TEE 1) Pick a landmark on the range as a practice hazard 2) Work shots away from the hazard, but still on your intended line.
If you want to toughen up your mental game, you have to put yourself through game time situations. Here's a great game from Kevin Weeks. 1) Hit two balls on every shot attempt. 2) Play the worst ball. 3) When you make your putt, you have to sink it twice. It's a BLAST!
If you want to make BIRDIES you have to have great distance control with your wedges. Use this drill from PGA TOUR ACADEMIES' Travis Fulton. Practice chipping in 5 yard increments up to 30 yards and then back. Once you have conquered 30 yards, then progress to 40 and 50 yards.
Scrambling is one of the most important scoring elements of your game. Here is a great game to help make working on your Scrambling even more fun. Chip and Putt 3 balls around the green for 9-holes. Chip in = Birdie, Chip + Putt = Par, Chip + 2-Putt = Bogey
