Shuffleboard Golf

Problem

You are getting bored practicing your putting skills but you still need practice.

Cure

Make a game out of putting. Play shuffleboard on the green, carpet, or putting turf by putting golf balls. You can do this alone or with a friend. Using two different colored balls would make this came easier to play.

Therapy

If you have the putting yips, it would be a great game to play in the driveway to help change the way you perceive impact so you eliminate the twitch you experience as the clubhead moves towards the ball. The ball will roll faster on the driveway and will enhance any aiming errors you might be making. If you are playing with a friend, try to knock their balls out of the scoring zone as you would in shuffleboard. You can do the same thing with opposite colored balls if you are playing by yourself. Regardless of where you play this game, it is a great way for you to work on your speed and aim.

Another great game I play with friends to work on my putting is "bocce putting". Same rules as bocce, only with golf balls and putters.
