Speaker 1: I want to welcome you again to the Insider's Club and this drill I want to share with my insiders.
Right here, this is a great drill to avoid the deceleration.
If you are decelerating at all in your putting stroke, and what I mean by decelerating is it goes back and it slows down.
If you're decelerating at all, you're going to struggle with short putts, so if you are having a problem with short putts, I encourage you to do this drill.
All we're going to do is we're going to take three balls here.
We're going to set the first one up about three or four feet, you want it to be somewhat straight, and we're just going to place the second ball at what we feel is an adequate distance to make a backswing for this length of a putt.
The third one, we're going to make it and have it, again, adequate distance, but you can notice that the space is greater for these two than it is for this one.
Then we just simply set up here, and we make our stroke, and we don't want to hit that one and we want to accelerate to the hole.
This one here, we want to take it back, don't hit the ball, and accelerate to the hole.
Feel it, just imagine that this is the same one, short back, and accelerate to the hole.
That's how you can avoid that deceleration, and that's how you can become a better putter on short putts.
Avoid the deceleration.
If you are missing a lot of short putts, this is the drill I want you to do.
Again, as you set it up here, just make really certain here that your distance here, you want this one, you want to give yourself adequate amount of distance.
This one's going to be a little bit bigger distance, but enough that you can make the backswing and accelerate to the hole.
If I made this a little bit shorter, but again, I'm just trying to accelerate to the hole.
You saw I can hit that one.
Short back and accelerate.
Short back and accelerate to the hole.
That's all we're looking for, and that drill right there will improve your short putts.
