I N S T R U C T I O N 38 SEPT/OCT 2017 SPEED BUMPS GET OVER YOUR TENTATIVE STROKE WITH THE JUMP THE STICK DRILL F or those of you that are tentative on your short flat or uphill putts, the "jump the stick drill" is perfect … and it couldn't be easier. Simply lay an alignment stick, or a golf pencil braced by two tees, directly in front of the cup and putt two, three, four, and five-footers that (literally) jump the stick (or pencil) and land in the hole. This will force you to strike the putt firmly enough for the ball to get over/"jump" the stick and land in the hole, but not so hard that it flies over the hole. This drill will build your speed control as well as your confidence. Mike Maggs Director of Instruction Southern California Golf Academy Instagram @maggsgolf
