Set up a circle with markers for the hours of the clock to practice putting skills for golf. The circle can be as big as is appropriate to give your class practice at putting. Perhaps start out with a small circle, and as they get better, widen the circle to increase the distance that they putt. Have six or fewer players in each circle so they are spaced out. Place a target hole within the circle, but not in the direct center. The players then take turns putting to the target. After they all have a turn, they retrieve their balls and rotate a space on the clock. Provide a 12-spot scorecard to keep track of their putting scores from each position.
