Statistical programs consistently show how important putting is from 4-8 feet. We have a game for you that revolves around that exact vital statistic.
This week’s Game of the Week, called Clock, is a great game that will reduce the pressure that you feel when trying to hole one of these on the course. You can play it over and over again in a short amount of time; so get out there this weekend and do something great for your game, practicing pressure situations with a score present.
Game of the Weekend: Clock
- Gear needed: Putter, 12 tees and 1 ball
- Time needed: Less than 10 minutes, depending on how good you are!
Rules: Set up a tee at each of these distances from the hole: 4 feet, 6 feet and 8 feet. This will make up the “12 o’clock” position. Then set up tees at the same distances at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock. This will give you a total of 12 tees.
Start from the 4-foot tee at 12 o’clock and proceed around in a circle putting from all of the 4-feet tees, followed by the 6-feet tees and finally the 8-feet tees. Add up the number of putts that you holed out of a possible 12 and enter that into the golfscrimmages.com practice website if you wish to track your score.
Benefits: Here’s what this game helps you with.
- Pressure-packed short putts where you’ll either make your money or lose it!
- By alternating positions around the hole, you’ll never get the same break/line twice in a row and that’s vital to your ability to do it the ONE time that we’re allowed on the course.
