Tip 1: When you are on the practice green look for a hole to putt to that has a break in it. Get near the hole and imagine the face of a clock. Put a tee in the ground for the 12 o'clock time, then one for 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock, and 9 o'clock. Place the tees about one inch from the hole. Walk about 10 paces away from hole and set a golf ball down and crouch down behind it and try to imagine the line.
Step 2: Determine the break and try to figure out "what time" you want the ball to drop into the hole.
Tip 3: Forget about mechanics and just hit the ball to the proper "time".
Tip 4: Move around clockwise around the cup to learn how your ball reacts to different breaks.
This putting drill will help you to see line of the putt as you use your imaginary "putting clock". Breaking putts and straight putts will become much easier. Hope this drill helps!
