Lag Putting – The Key to Eliminating 3 Putts

 

A lag putt involves putting close to the hole ready for a shorter putt. It’s used to eliminate 3 putts in your game by controlling your putting distance on longer putts. It’s less than 4% likely for a high handicapper to hole a putt more than 15 ft away from the hole. The idea that you can hole it is crazy, and the better option for you is to try and get it as close as possible by using distance control, or lag putting. In this article I’m going to share some lag putting drills with you, so you can start to practice this concept on the course and finally cut the majority of the 3 putts from your game.
