Three Putting Games to Help with Ball Control

You drive for show and putt for doe !” This just about covers it, just missing the fairway, ruff, and bunkers and water that make up the round. But the quickest way to lower your score is “lowering your putts“.

Getting down to 2 putts max per green is key !

If you could only putt once each hole, well anyone would settle for that. It’s the greens that end up with 3 or more putts that will keep you struggling to lower your handicap.

When you are practicing putting alone you can gain confidence with this tip, or even try to only use one ball, you might pay attention more and concentrate on each putt since you know you have to walk and get it.

But if you are practicing with others or at least one other person, you can try these three putting practice games.

  1. Closest short to win : So you try and work on control of your distance and leave the ball short but still trying to be as close as possible.
  2. Closest past to win : Again working on your control of the ball you want to pass the cup and leave it long, staying as close as you can.
  3. Make the putt to win : Well this one is pretty obvious, just make the putt first to win, you can play “Best out of 5” and loser buys drinks or snacks ;-)

Golf Game For 3 Players

There are many games golfers play out on the course, but if your not playing in a golf tournament and your out there with 2 of your buddies, not many people know a game for 3 players.

Three Player Golf GameA fun game to play is most commonly called “Nines”

Its a very easy game to play, and can be fun even if the 3 of you all play at different handicaps.

Each player plays their own ball the entire time, if you want to give any high handicap players stokes that is OK too. At the end of each hole you figure out who was 1st, 2nd and 3rd and divide up the “9 Points” as follows…

    • 1st place gets 5 points
    • 2nd place gets 3 points
    • 3rd place gets 1 point

If any golfers tie…

  • 1st/2nd tie, they get 4 points each and the 3rd place gets 1 point.
  • 2nd/3rd tie, they get 2 points each and the 1st place gets 5 points.
  • If all 3 players tie, then each player get 3 points.

Simple and fun, give it a try next time you have 3 golfers together.

  Rolex Golf Watch

Fortunately, Rolex gold watches are a natural for sports men and women in all sports because of their sophisticated movements and their durable, water-resistant cases. Genuine Rolex watches are as elegant as the most prestigious golf course while sleek and unobtrusive enough to be good golf watches.

Best Watches For Golf

The best watch for golf is one that keeps precise time, a wrist watch that doesn’t get in the way of your game and a watch that’s stylish enough to make you feel good about yourself. Founded in 1919, Rolex has a long and honorable history of producing luxury watches. Golf champions around the globe depend on them.

Best Rolex Golf Watches

Showcasing some of the best Rolex golf watches, on & off the course.

Rolex makes several watches that are well-suited for golfers. Some of the most common for men include the Rolex Submariner, the Rolex Datejust, the Rolex Explorer, the Rolex Milgauss and the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust. Ladies Rolex watches for sports like golf include the Rolex Lady-Datejust and the Rolex Lady Oyster.

If you like to wear your high end Rolex watch while golfing and not just in the clubhouse, then in our opinion; the 36mm case is a great choice and stick with some type of a metal band (steel, gold, white gold, platinum, or combination). If your sweating a leather band may not be optimal.

For Us The Best Rolex Watches For Golf Are:

  • Rolex Milgauss
  • Rolex Datejust
  • Rolex Explorer
  • Rolex Airking
  • Rolex President
Here are a few examples provided by Bobs Watches:

Tiger Woods Rolex Watches

Tiger used to be sponsored by Tag Heuer until mid-2011, when supposedly they dropped him. Not but a few months later, and Tiger Woods is sponsored by Rolex in 2011. Not surprising that such a power player would be a good fit for the elite luxury watch maker Rolex.

Want to own the same model Rolex watch that Tiger Woods has?

From the picture above, it seems Tiger Woods has: (left to right)

  • President Day-Date His has Roman numerals & its hard to tell if its White Gold or Platinum (This is Tiger Woods were talking about.)
  • Rolex Sea-Dweller DeepSea Classic Rolex that sets a person apart. A new Deep Sea will run around $12,000 and used about $9,500.

Rolex is so completely immersed in the game of golf, its impossible to separate the two. Strength, precision and spirit equal both Rolex watches and Rolex golf.
