Golf Tips: Stop leaving it short
by Tina Mickelson

Sometimes it can be difficult to get yourself to hit the ball to the hole in fear of blowing it by and leaving yourself a difficult putt coming back.  Try this drill the next time you are warming up for a round of golf and you should find when you get out onto the course your distance control is much more accurate.

 
STOP LEAVING IT SHORT - Photo by Paul Nasri 
On the practice green, place a club down behind the hole about 2-3 feet.  Then hit a number of putts to that hole from 5, 10, 15 and 20 feet with the intention being if the ball doesn’t go in the hole, it should end up between the hole and the club on the ground.  This drill will encourage you to get the ball to the hole without blowing it by, while in the meantime getting you accustomed to the speed of the greens you will be playing that day.
