Another variation I like for backyard practice is to start at 10 ft with 5 discs. Make all five, move back a pace. Miss one of five, move up a pace.

I'm pretty accurate inside of 20', so I get those first 20 'close' putts to solidify confidence and get my head in the right place, before getting to my 'problem' range.

My practice routine is as follows.
Muscle memory practice: Stack of 6 putters, putt stack of a all discs from 18' then 24' then 30', do this process 5 times = 90 putts.

Mental game practice (do this X 2): Now I putt out for 18 holes from the distances as above 18, 24, 30(repeat through distances 6 times) and record scores and I try to better each time. (example just so I'm clear: putt one disc from 18' then one disc from 24' then 30' repeat process six times and while recording scores) I can definitely feel the pressure when I 'm about get a new high score.

Disclaimer: Practice routine not my idea. Saw this routine awhile back ago and like the idea of it, instead of just putting stack of disc from various distances.

Hey billyjacko,
I think you are on to something. You usually get one crack at a putt every 5-7 minutes in an actual round. Practicing in the state-dependent fashion that you suggest is a very good idea IM and your O. Just set your timer!

I think it's funny that all of the skeptics think they need to tell you what their putting routine is.

There's just no way I could do that and not get bored. I don't have 3 hours to dedicate to throwing 36 putts like a tournament round.
