Practice Putting Under Pressure While Maintaining Focus

Find a straight putt and set tees at 3, 4, 5, 6, and 10 feet. 
All putts must be made before moving on to the next distance.

Make 30 putts from 3 feet
– then 25 putts from 4 feet
– then 15 feet from 5 feet
– then 10 feet from 6 feet
– then 5 from 10 feet

Just as if you were on the course you only get one chance to make the putt. Focus on each putt, go through your routine and stroke each putt with confidence. Stay focused, be patient and make it fun!
