Brad Faxon's Favorite Putting Drill + Poor Man's Pebble Beach

Brad Faxon is universally described as one of the best putters of all time. Today, we’re sharing one of Faxon’s favorite putting drills to really build your poise under pressure.

And to get you amped for this week’s tournament at Pebble Beach, let’s talk about your bankroll. Kidding of course, but what about a course 5 miles from Pebble you can play ~8x for the price of a single round at Pebble. We bring you Poor Man’s Pebble Beach! And while we’re on the topic of bankroll, how about a piece of trivia about private golf clubs for a chance to win a Malbon x Seamus Rancho Arroyo Fairway Headcover!

Brad Faxon’s putting drill WILL make you a better putter under pressure
One of best putting drills from one of the best putters of all-time

To Recap…

To hit the ball far, don’t worry about your leg drive or the length of your backswing. There’s one move that all of the longest hitters make, and it has everything to do with your trail arm at impact.

The Move:

-STEP 1: Focus on keeping your trail arm bent at impact, the closer to your body the better.
-STEP 2: Be sure to clear your hips on the way through impact so you don’t block shots out to the right (if you’re a righty)
