Best Golf Tips: How to improve your putting with the TEE PEG Drill

A consistent and successful putting stroke is vitally important to your golf game. Your driving and iron play can be great, but if you can't roll in your putts then it is pointless.

GolfMagic went to see Lloyd Davies, the head professional at Heyrose Golf Club in Knutsford, and he has a great drill for you to perfect your putting stroke.

You may not have seen this drill before, but it is extremely useful and cost-effective. A key problem that Lloyd finds with some players is that their putting stroke is too wristy and this can lead to a loss of feel and control.

All you need to do is take a tee peg and put it in the top of the grip of your putter. You then place some blue tac on the top of this tee peg and stick on another tee peg on its side.

As Lloyd shows in the pictures above, the aim of this drill is to ensure the tee that is laid on its side does not touch either of your forearms. If you can complete your putting stroke without making contact with the tee peg, you have made a solid swing.

However, if you see the pictures below, Lloyd shows what will happen if your stroke is too wristy. The tee peg will hit one of your forearms and this shows what you need to avoid.

A great benefit of this drill is that you receive immediate feedback and you will find that your torso will need to move while you build a good habit in your wrist movements.

Lloyd has been coaching now for over 15 years in Sussex and Surrey and has recently returned from Dubai, having coached at Arabian Ranches and Dubai Hills Golf Club for four years. He can be found on Instagram @lloydsgolfperformance. 

He has worked with European Tour players and enjoys coaching golfers of all abilities. The Tee Peg Drill is an example of how your putting stroke can dramatically improve.
