50 balls exercise – Putting

I found another exercise on golf.se, that i want to try out. This one is to test your ability to hole shorter putts between 1-5 meters.

It is a Par-72 strokes game, where you vary distance on every shot. 10 series on each distance between 1 and 5 meters,

I will try this exercise the next time i am on the putting green. Will be interesting to see where i am.

According to golf.se a scratch player should come in at 76.8 and a handicap 5 player at 79.1.

Today i tried it out on the putting green. Here is my score

Series/Distance 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Score Par Score to par
1m 1 2 1 2 1 1 2 2 1 2 15 11 4
2m 1 2 1 2 2 1 1 2 2 2 16 13 3
3m 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 17 15 2
4m 3 2 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 19 16 3
5m 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 2 2 2 19 17 2
totals 9 9 7 9 8 6 9 10 9 10 86 72 14

I scored 86 (+14) and surprisingly the 1m putts was my worst score.

My score was not anyway near what i expected. I will try it next time with my ping putter, and maybe i can finally decide which putter to use.

I need to work on my putting routine, and then measure again.

Here is my score from today using my ping putter.

Series/Distance 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Score Par Score to par
1m 1 1 1 1 1 3 2 1 1 2 14 11 3
2m 1 2 2 3 2 1 1 1 1 2 16 13 3
3m 2 1 2 1 2 3 2 2 2 2 19 15 4
4m 2 3 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 2 19 16 3
5m 2 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 2 2 19 17 2
totals 8 9 9 9 9 10 7 8 8 10 87 72 15

A score of 87. Too little difference to decide. I need to work more on my putting game, and then redo the tests. I shot a video of this second attempt, which i might share later.
