So i had my lowest ever round at the weekend, albeit with circa 7nr 3 putts; which in some respects give me hope as if i drop these i'll be mid 80's in no time.
I'm working on my scoring shots 75 yards and around the green, but what would be your putting tips and practice guides for a beginner?

First, make sure your putter suits your game. I'd recommend a putter fitting that'll look at your stroke and then build a putter from there. Grip, shaft length, lie, loft, head shape and lines can all affect your stroke.
When I work on my putting I start at 3 feet from the hole and make 10 putts in a row, if I miss one I have to start over.
From there I place a tee at 3 feet and then one tee at three foot intervals out to 21 feet. I'll place one ball at each tee and will go through my entire routine trying to make the putt, if I miss then as long as it finishes within a foot of the hole I'm happy.
You can also use a training aid such as the various putting mirrors, I like the putting tutor from Dave Pelz, to ensure I'm making a good stroke.
Hope this helps.
