Make More Birdies. Or Pars!

Mr. Shortgame demonstrates how to make more birdies in practice so we can make more birdies on the course.

It’s hard to recreate the pressure that we sometimes feel on the golf course. But Mr. Shortgame has a strategy and drill that definitely applies the pressure. The great thing about this drill is that it puts us in a real on-course frame of mind. We have to make the putts!

What this does in turn, is that it forces us to go through our regular routine. Or it encourages us to develop a regular routine if we don’t have one. As we work out way through completion of this drill, we’ll have the confidence to take our skill to the course.

    I use a similar drill but putt on a single line. Start with the first ball 12″ from the cup and move back to 24″ for the second, 36″ for the third and so on. If you miss you get a second ball from that spot. Miss both you start over. I have putted back to 40′ + on a good day before missing 2 in a row. I like your drill as well. For beginners (most of us, lol) I would start your drill from 3′ and once successful, move back to 6′, then 9′, then 12′. Starting from a short distance will give you confidence to attack those longer distances. Thanks for a great drill.

    The GREAT Mr. Shortgame. No one better. Simple, fun, entertaining, and very instructional. I would so love to play a round with him and knock down a couple of beers. It would be a great day even if I shot 95.

    For a high handicapper I could be out there all day. I Like the concept but might start over only on missing that specific putt; ie.

    I miss the third putt…keep going till I make that putt. Another possible change is to shorten the distance.
