5 Simple Indoor Golf Putting Drills
The following drills are beginner level to build basic fundamental putting stroke skills. You need just a few phone books and a coin or tee to set up these putting drills.
Drill #1: Phone Book Path – Drop two phone books onto the ground at home and leave enough distance between them that your putter can barely squeeze through. Make practice strokes focusing on keeping the putter path straight and putter face square. If you don’t, you may bump into the books which give you feedback that your putting stroke wasn’t straight for that stroke.
Drill #2: Phone Book with Golf Ball – Set up two phone books again so that you’ve left your putter enough room to make a stroke between them. Now place a 10 foot piece of painter’s tape in the middle of the path and parallel to the books so that it creates a target line. Several feet of tape should be outside the books so that you can see how your ball stays on line for several feet.
Set a golf ball down in the middle of the books path on the target line you’ve created and stroke putts. You can use the books to monitor your backswing length compared to your forward swing length. The forward swing should be equal or slightly bigger than the back swing. Using the books as a guide for a straight putting stroke, try to see how many putts you can keep on the tape/target line.
Drill #3: Right Handed Putts – Pick a target to putt to from 3 feet away and using just your right hand, stroke one handed putts trying to hit the target. Make sure to keep the putter path straight still as well as the face square to your target. This will build your putting stroke by ingraining skill with one hand.
Drill #4: Left Handed Putts – Repeating the same drill, use just your left hand to stroke 3 foot putts to a target you’ve selected.
Drill #5: Putting to a Tee – Set up a golf tee so that it’s upside down. Starting 3 feet away, putt a ball to the tee trying to knock it over. Then move back to 4 feet, 5 feet, and so on. Try to work your way back to 20 feet away and still be able to knock the tee over.
