What is The Lag Putt Game?
The lag putt game is a fun point-based drill that will help you practice getting the ball to the hole, without hitting it past that ideal distance of 18 inches. One of the best parts of this game is that you can play by yourself and try to compete with your score the last time you did it. You will see improvement and be able to track it with few negative reinforcements.
Who Should Do It?
If you constantly struggle to get the ball to the hole on long putts.
If you hit lag putts too far.
If you 3 putt too much.
How Do You Do It?
- Place a club, alignment stick, or flag 18in behind the hole.
- Putt from 20 feet or more.
- If the ball finishes at hole or longer but before the barrier, you earn 2 points. A made putt is worth 3 points. If your ball comes up short of the hole, you receive -1 point
Add up your score and try to improve upon it every time you practice this drill.
