### Why do I struggle with short putts?

Short putts require accuracy above distance control. You should be able to hit putts straight with one hand; overactive hands can twist the face and cause short putts to miss their intended starting line. Once you practice starting your putts on line with one hand, you can move to your regular grip.

### Why do I miss 4 foot putts?

Follow through the ball, forcing yourself to not decelerate as you impact the ball. So many short putts are missed because they were hit too soft, breaking just before the cup to the left or right. Don’t even look at the hole, putt the ball directly over that marked spot, and your ball will always be on line!

**How do I make all of my short putts?**

The big secret for making all of your short putts is to take the club back as little as possible on the backswing. As soon as that light bulb went on, I went back to my 3 foot half circle drill where I see how many in a row I can hit, and I hit 40 3 foot putts right then! I’d never made more than 15 before that.

## How hard is it to hit a short putt from 3-3 feet?

It’s very easy to get the speed right from 3 feet, which is why on short putts the emphasis should be on aim and starting direction. If you aim where you want and start the putt in the direction you’re aiming, then you have a fairly good chance of holing any putt inside 5 feet.

## How many putts should you make in a row?

You can settle for a smaller number of made putts to begin with, then work your way up. Another example of repetitive putting drills is one called the 1-2-3 Drill. First, make 15 consecutive putts from one foot; then make 10 in a row from two feet; then make five in a row from three feet.
