This is one of my favorite drills for helping students improve their speed control; it's also a great diagnostic for monitoring tempo and awareness from one putt to the next. Plus, it is very simple to squeeze into a practice session. Given all of its positives, I will prescribe this drill to the majority of students who are concerned about their putting.
To begin, all you need to do is hit (3) putts in a row while trying to ensure that each putt travels the same distance. To increase the difficulty, I will have students "call" each putt after impact (whether it be short, long, or within the margin of our intended goal). This will dial up the awareness further and challenge players that have a hard time reconciling their "feels" with the results on the green.
