BONNERS FERRY — Another great drill to improve your putting prowess is to practice short putts with just the target side hand (the hand closest to the target) on the putter.

If done correctly, the back of the target hand will face the hole on the follow through, just like the putter face, and the ball will roll straight to the hole.

This drill gives great feedback if you are incorrectly rotating your wrist through the impact area. It should be straight back and straight through.

If you have ever shot a basketball, you know your left hand is used for guidance. You would not be consistent at all if you just used your right hand. Same in putting. Put this drill into your practice rotation and I guarantee you will make more putts.
