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.

This one is called the gate drill. If you don’t want to pay the $50 fee for the device itself, you can make your own for with some supplies you most likely already have.

Pictured on the left is a simple practice putting station with two golf tees and a string representing your line to the hole. On the right is the Momentus teaching aid that does the same thing.

Place the tees just outside the width of your putter, at first from about 4 or 5 feet away with a straight putt and start working.

You can do this with many teaching aids on the market and, with the economy the way it is, you can have fun and be very practical by just using products you already own to help your game.

Play as much as you can and keep practicing throughout the winter months to stay sharp. Look for great lesson and golfing rates over the winter at your facility.
