Skill Drills with Meredith Kirk: 4 Corners Putting Drill


This putting drill is called Four Corners, the North, South, East, and West. This drill is very helpful when it comes to those shorter putts, the three, four, and five footers. We all struggle with those putts out in the course and this drill's going to help build more consistency with your putting. So what you want do is you get 12 tees and you want to set up three tees for North, South, East, West direction and your going to put one tee in at three feet, the second tee, at four feet and then that last tee, at five feet. What it does, it really gives you a variety of different putting shots, working at different angles and that is very important in building that consistency. As you can see, I have 12 tees set up and I have the golf balls arranged next to each tee and the goal is this, when you're practicing this, you want to make very single putt so this is 12 putts that you need to make. If you are in the middle of this drill and you miss a putt, start over again. Start back at the beginning. This drill right here can take you five or ten minutes or it could take you 30 minutes, maybe 45 minutes. But again, if you were to practice this once a week, the Four Corner Drill, you're going be amazed at how this will build your consistency. 

I'm going to go ahead and show you how to do this. You rolled over the ball there. Okay, so I demonstrated three of the shots. What you're going to do is you're just going to keep working around the four corners. This is an amazing drill and if you're one that struggles with the shorter putts, those three, four, five putters, I want you to try this drill, Four Corners.
