10 Foot Grinder

A game to challenge the nerves inside of 10 feet, this game is design to create some variability in your practice. This game will use a North and South configuration for setting up the tees. 1. Designate one hole on the putting green for this game. 2. Using tees, assign one side of the hole as odd numbers in distances (1ft, 3ft, etc.), going all the way up to 9ft (North). Assign the opposing side (South) as even numbers in feet going all the way to 10ft. 3. Begin the game at the 1ft tee. Once holed, go to the opposite side of the hole to find the 2' tee. Once holed, go back to the odd number side of the hole and putt from 3'. Continue this process until you reach 10'. 4. A few variations of this game can be played: - If a putt is missed, move up to the previous distance (ex: player misses the 5' putt, they go back to the 4' putt. A player is never remaining in the same position, regardless of a make or miss) - Advanced: If at any time you miss a putt, return back to the 1' putt to start over. The goal would be to make all 10 in a row.
