Lorena Ochoa's 3 Putting Drills

Lorena Ochoa once said golf is the game of making birdies. That just shows you how confident she is with putting.

Here are 3 putting drills that she uses. They will help you, too.

1) Stop moving your head

Ask someone to hold your head while you hit your putt. Try to look at the spot below the ball for 2 seconds after hitting the ball.

2) Close your eyes

Set up to the ball. Just before you start your backswing, close your eyes and hit the putt.

She said by hitting putts with your eyes closed, you will learn distance control.

You can also feel the movement of the arms during the stroke. She said the slower the arms move during the putt, the more consistent your putt will be.

3) Holding a ball between your knees

Set up to the ball. Now, try to hold basketball, volleyball or something like that between your knees.

This will help you limit the lower body movement.
