If you want game like Ricky Wysocki or Paul McBeth, you’ve really got to want it. So, getting some putting practice in is of the utmost importance.

Not everyone lives right next to a course, though, so sometimes you’ve got to improvise. With that in mind, let’s see some do-it-yourself practice baskets, ranked.

1. “Blair Witch Basket”

2. Stuck in your cubicle all day, but you would rather get out and putt than fill out TPS reports, right? Fret no more: Try to practice on this mini basket.

12. Missing a death putt to save par off a cliff. Missing it again after a one-stroke penalty re-throw, then laying up and taking a snowman.

Putting at your dirty laundry.
