Here is a great practice drill to help you make more 3 foot and 6 foot putts. You want to find a hole on your putting green that is on a slop. Place four tees three feet away from the hole at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock.

You goal is to putt each ball until you make all four consecutive putts. If you miss a putt you want to start over. When you make four consecutive putt you want to move the four tees out to six feet away from the hole.

Now your goal is to make 4 consecutive 6 foot putts. If you miss one you should start over again until you make 4 consecutive 6 foot putts.

That is the clock drill. With this type of practice you should be able to become very proficient at making up hill putts, down hill putts, right to left break putts, and left to right break putts. Inside 3 to 6 feet you will start to feel more confident.
