Spend more time putting
During his victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational a month ago, Tiger Woods made a remarkable 58 of 58 putts from 6 feet or less.
Johnson uses this statistic to tell students: Do not spend all your time just hitting balls at the range.
“Spend the majority of your time practicing putting from 6 feet and in,” Johnson said. “Unfortunately, all of us will probably never hit a drive like Tiger Woods, but that does not mean we cannot putt as well as he does. Most of us do not have the body and flexibility that Tiger does, but you don’t have to have Tiger’s physique to be a great putter.”
Most players hit balls for an hour and hit a couple of putts before you rush off to the first tee. It should be the complete opposite.
