In the program Phil talks about one of his (and mine) favourite pre game routines called "round the clock"
For Phil , he sets a target of holing out 100 putts in a row from 3 feet before moving on to the practice ground & course.
For you & I , a more modest figure of 20 would be a good start.
How to do it ?
*Place Tees around the Hole to mark out a 3 foot putt
*Decide on your Target number of putts to hole , eg 20
*Place balls at each point and putt each one in turn.
*if you miss one you have to start again from zero!
Why is it such a great drill ?
As you get closer to your target the pressure builds helping to simulate on course situations.
Builds Concentration Skills & Routine while adding Stroke Confidence.
On the course a putt of less than 3 feet is the length of putt you are going to face most often. The 3 foot putt for many people is the least practiced area , which - the benefit of being confident in your ability over this distance - will help not only hole out with certainty but allow you to be more positive on the longer putts knowing that if you do go 2 or 3 feet past its no problem!
On the reverse side of this , if you are not confident over these putts & start missing them it has a massive negative impact on the score & game.
