One of the most common adages in golf is that a ball that doesn't get to the hole can't go in, although that sentiment often is expressed much more colorfully on the course.

And truth be told, very few things in golf are more frustrating than reading a putt perfectly only to have it come up short.

In this video segment, SwingFix instructor Justin Bruton has a simple yet effective drill to help you improve your speed on the greens.

It’s a simple drill, and more importantly a sure-fire way to lower your frustration level on the greens.
