PUTTING: Round and Round

FAULT:  MISSED THREE FOOT PUTTS

Missing a three-foot putt is one of the most costly mishaps on the golf course.  This is the opportunity to make a birdie, par, or bogey, either way one stroke less than what you will end up with if you are consistently missing these putts.

FIX:  ROUND AND ROUND GAME

This game will give you an idea of just how good or bad you are at three-foot putts.  Take you sand wedge, 9 golf balls, and 9 tees, now place them in this fashion above.  The goal is to see how many putts you can make without missing one.  A great goal would be getting around one time without a miss, and when you think that you are pretty good at this game remember that Phil Mickelson will make close to 65 or 70 in a row per day during his practice session.

Now, you may not be able to hit the 360 drive that Mickelson can, but you better believe you have the physical strength to putt like he does.
