This is a great putting drill to help the golfer understand the importance of getting the hands, arms and shoulders all connected and working as one!  I will incorporate this drill into my putting instruction because of its simplicity in setting it up correctly.  Thanks to Martin Hall of the Golf Channel for sharing! 
There is a reason you have an easier time making a good stroke on a 25-foot putt than you do on a three-, five- or even 10-footer: you don’t expect to make every one of those long ones. When you get over a shorter putt, the expectation is higher, therefore, the letdown is greater and your nerves kick up.

Martin Hall explains that the face of the putter at impact dictates about 90% of a putt’s direction and with shorter putts, that means there is less room for error. He demonstrates how simply duct taping two alignment rods (or the cheaper alternative — reflective rods) can train your body to keep the putter head square through impact, thus allowing you to make more putts.

My great friend and mentor, Phil Ritson, who I regard as the greatest teacher I have ever known, taught this to me many, many years ago.

And I still incorporate this in my teaching today.  Control the release with the left forearm (for right-handed golfers) and NOT the right hand, and you will get consistent results.  I like Martin Hall’s way of saying EDPU Elbow Down Palm Up.  Describing it differently might help some golfers understand what they have to do to eliminate their slice.  The other example he uses that I like as well as the “Key” drill. Watch and learn how to finally get rid of that pesky slice.  If you still cannot do it, come and see me, and I will help!

The flop shot is intimidating for most golfers.  We watch in awe as Phil Mickelson plays this shot with relative ease.
