Practice Something to consider before you waste your time
I accidentally did an experiment with a bunch of my kids where they were trying make as many putts as possible down a 4 foot metal ruler. They first did their test in December where they recorded their best streak and total putts made out of 50 but what happened recently was interesting.
Last week, everyone failed to improve because I simply asked them to just hit 50 putts and see if they could do better. Last night I asked them to beat their streak first and then with the remaining putts go to 50 and see if they can improve their total made as well.
To my astonishment every kid did better last night versus last week.
Food for thought before you assign practice goals.
