First of all, can you really “beat the course” from tee to green? Most golfers spend the bulk of their practice time on long shots . . . full swings.
Here is an oldie but goodie drill for putting that is making a big comeback, thanks to a company called Momentus. They make many well-made teaching aids for golfers of all abilities and ages.

Golf is in high gear right now. Have you gotten your swing on video lately?
Tiger Woods is obviously one of the best putters in the game of golf. No doubt quite a bit of God-given talent has a lot to do with it.
