A lot of my students who struggle with lag putting are simply not taking a long enough backswing; this leads to an over exaggeration of the acceleration in the forward stroke, which is hard to repeat and manage. Ultimately, to get a better understanding of the tempo & "feel" necessary for good lag putting, I will have students hit a putt as far as they possible can. However, the key here is that they must maintain good form. That is, we do not want any excess movement or added power from the wrists/forearms or lower-body. When done correctly, this drill provides an excellent "reference point" for players to use for dialing in their longer putts and with practice, should help eliminate any unnecessary three-putts.
