Notes from "Making It Stick: The Science Of Successful Learning."
Short Putts and Long Putts:
One of the simplest ways to improve your score is to make more short putts.
The assessment for short putts is simple: roll ten putts from 3' and keep track of the number of makes. If you are at 9 or 10, move back to 4' and repeat at 5' and 6'.
Most three putts are cause by lack of distance control.
Here is a Distance Putting Assessment:
Play 9-Holes Putting- Start from 7-20 steps away from the hole (20'-60') and play nine holes and keep track fo your score.
Benchmarking is important to being able to track you progress and identify where you need to invest your purposeful practice time.
To improve your putting, schedule a private lesson or join one of our small group Putting Mastery Sessions so you can have more of these type of experiences...

- Find the Player Registration table and check-in with the U.S. Kids Golf staff.
- Visit the Pro Shop and purchase driving range balls. Spectators may also rent carts from the Pro Shop (if available).
- Make sure you have snacks, drinks, and sunscreen for you and your player during the round.
- Put some tees, a golf ball, a divot repair tool, a pencil, and a coin or ballmarker in your pocket.
- After the player warms up on the driving range and practice putting green, arrive at the No. 1 or No. 10 at least 10 minutes before the player's tee time. The player's starting hole will be indicated on the list of tee times.
