There is an old saying in golf that you drive for show but you putt for dough. If you are looking for the quickest way to shave a few strokes from your score, it can be found practicing for a few minutes before every round on the practice green.

Every golf course’s greens are generally a little different. Some are faster than other, softer etc. Spending just a few minutes before every round can prove to be invaluable.  

A good way to get a feel for the speed of the greens is to really focus on distance control.  Lay down 4 different balls from 20 feet or so away from a hole and try to see if you can stop within a 1 foot radius of the cup.  

Allow enough time before you tee off to Repeat this little drill four or five times before every round and watch your scores drop in a hurry!
