Golf Tips- How To Improve Your Putting Distance Control With The Box Drill Video
The box drill helps golfers develop better distance control while putting. This is the key component to consistently getting the ball close to – or in – the hole.
PGA Professional Todd Kolb shows how to set up the drill. It is simply done with 4 tees and some yarn or string. Make a box, using the string and use tees to keep the box in place. The box needs to be anywhere from 15-20 feet wide from left-to-right and about 24 inches (or 2 feet) deep.
Place two tees 20 feet from the center of the box, with one of the tees above the hole and the other tee below the hole. This helps to practice putts moving faster and some putts moving a little slower. From there, hit as many putts as you want, trying to key in on distance control by keeping the putts in the box.
This is a great drill to help focus on the speeds of certain greens and also, how much pace is being put on your putts consistently.
