Beginners try this drill: put 6 equally spaced tee's in a circle 1 foot from a hole. From each tee, putt until you make it. If you do, then move onto the next one. Take your time and focus on making all six putts. Once you have made all 6 then move the tee's out to 2 feet and repeat the drill. You are complete when you have moved the tee's out to the 7 foot mark.
This is a good drill that helps you to putt from all angles. It helps you to learn uphill and downhill putts as well as right to left breaks and vice verse. You will learn consistency and gain confidence. Use the same routine for every stroke and listen for the ball to fall into the hole. Do this drill religiously and you will see a huge improvement in your short range putting skills and your score will, in time, reflect it.
