Can Mini Golf Improve My Putting?

If you've been looking for ways to improve your putting, it's time to think outside of the box! While mini golf is a fun family activity, it may also be the key to refining your putting!

Ways Mini Golf Can Help Your Putting

We all know the ins and outs of mini-golf. From putting through tunnels and over bridges and around various obstacles, you may be wondering how this could help your putting game out on the big green. You may be surprised to learn that many of the skills you use during mini-golf can be transferred to a regular golf course.

Keep in mind that when playing mini-golf, you need to use a variety of strategies to navigate the obstacles. To achieve the right shot, you need to analyze the slope and speed of the mini-golf green, plan your angle of attack and find the best path around the obstacles. Additionally, you need to determine your direction, line speed, and tempo to set yourself up for success.

By regularly playing mini-golf, you can help make yourself a better analyst of the position, slope, and speed of the regular golf greens, which can, in turn, help you become a pro at putting.

Additionally, mini-golf helps to improve your control and distance perception, and your eye-hand coordination. It will also help you hone your visualization and imagination when reading the break of the greens, which will certainly help your putting.

The great thing about mini golf is it makes your putting the focus and not just an afterthought like in a regular golf game. Mini golf also helps you practice under the pressure of a real game, giving you a more enhanced practice than you would get just working on your putting on its own.
