This is a great drill for golfers of all levels looking to hole more putts.

Get three or four feet from a hole, and push two tees into the ground just outside the heel and toe of the putter head.  Place the tees close enough together that if the putter strays even a bit it will hit one of the tees. 

Next try to hole out 10 putts in a row using one hand only, and then repeat the process using other hand. Once you have made 20 in a row, hold the putter with both hands for double the amount of putts in a row.

This drill is great for learning to control the putter head with your arms, both independently and together through impact.  It also gets you used to seeing the ball go in the hole, helping you build confidence.
