Putting Drill 104. Technique: The Pendulum Drill


The Pendulum Drill is a fantastic way to quickly improve your putting rhythm, stability and consistency – the keys to great putting.

The simple pendulum is one of the most important phenomena in all of nature, and it plays a huge role in almost all human movement.  A pendulum has a fundamental frequency, a rhythm, and if you can move in harmony with your own natural rhythms then you will move most efficiently, accurately and consistently.

This drill will help you to find your own “putting pendulum” – a stable “one piece” connection between your chest, shoulders, arms and hands that will enable you to swing rhythmically; maintaining a consistent, controlled putting stroke that you can rely on to perform on the golf course under any circumstances, for as long as you play this great game.

The result will be a beautifully smooth putting stroke, with much better distance control (touch) and control over the club face, striking the ball solidly and rolling the ball end-over-end, consistently on line.

You will sink a lot more putts, and your misses will finish much closer to the hole…
