Improve your Lag Putts

Pigs GolfingGolf Tip – Focus on on judging your distance and you’ll improve your lag putts.  To avoid three-putt greens, distance should be your biggest concern.  A good drill to help you develop a feel for distance is to place 8 tees around the edge of your practice green.  Move to the center of the green and out to the tees but avoid going off the green.  See how close you can come to the tees.  This drill will give you different slopes and distances, and you will not simply be hitting the same putt over and over until you get the feel for the distance.  It simulates on-course conditions and will help you develop your feel for distance.
