Great short putting drill from nine other than @peterfinchgolf
I like the addition of a tee a few inches past the hole to have the golfer visualize hitting their putt with the proper amount of pace. If you have low confidence with your short putting: this is definitely a drill you should try!

Our in-season training for junior golfers is over and I am so proud and happy to have 20 juniors every week that are keen to train and get better together even in the hectic golf season, be coachable and willing to go all in to develope athletic skills for golf. This is the 8th year I have had junior golf groups and they grow from year to year. Thanks to all juniors and parents all these years - you are all a great part of a fantastic athletic training culture we have built up together over the years. Now a few weeks off before we start our off season block with new progressions and fun.
Jay came in this afternoon with complaints of a two way miss and problems with his longer clubs.
Diagnosis: Jay was doing a lot very well but the stand out issue for him was his extremely shut clubface at the top. From such a position his ball should go low and left if he were to make a good/neutral downswing.
What Jay would do is compensate for that shut face with a blocking of the hands and leading with the handle. This would give him the loft he needed to see the ball go in the air but he would lack distance with his longer irons due to lack of height and head speed.
The fix: Jay’s grip was extremely strong so we weakened his grip and encouraged him to have some forearm rotation to the top. From there he would likely hit it right due to his downswing tendencies. After a few balls he realised that he had to close the face into impact. The result - solid, repeatable impacts 👌🏻 GREAT WORK JAY!
WHAT IS IT.❔.
This swing fault is called Over The Top and is perhaps the most common characteristic among high handicappers. Usually its related to overuse or over dominance of the upper body during the downswing.
WHAT IT CAUSES.⁉️.
As a result of the Over The Top action, the club is thrown outside of the intended swing plane, with the club head approaching the ball in an out to in motion. If the club face is open, this causes a slice, and if the club face is square this causes a pull.
With this fault, golfers are robbed of power and lose ability to control the ball flight. The swing path or swing plane needs to be altered, which will create a more solid strike and increase both distance and accuracy.
With this fault, golfers will become prone to shoulder injuries in particular due to the excessive usage of upper body muscles.
HOW TO HELP✔️.
This fault can be improved by:
🔹Good ability to separate upper and lower body during the golf swing.
🔹Good core stability to help maintain posture and thorax stability.
🔹Good balance on each leg. Without this, the lower body won't be able to generate power during the swing and therefore the upper body will be over dominant.
