No Putts, No Glory is an episode of the ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series.


Alvin tricks Theodore into believing he's great at mini golf which backfires when Theo signs up for a tournament.[2]


Derek shows off his drone by chasing a bird before Alvin steals everyone's attention with his limited edition game. The Chipmunks take a trip to a goofy golf course; Alvin is winning, with Simon close behind, though Theodore could use a confidence boost. Alvin makes the claim of sports being 70% confidence and 30% skill and performs a ritual in which he gives 70% of his confidence to Theodore. In order to test that confidence, Alvin has Theodore close his eyes before hitting Alvin's ball, which Alvin trades for Theo's in order to place it into the cup. The following day Dave drops Theodore off at Putt n' Stuff where he signs up for a golf tournament, thinking he's a "golf god." Derek sees Theodore before tricking the munk into making a bet involving his drone and Alvin's new game. Alvin finds out that evening about the tournament and attempts to tell his younger brother the truth about the confidence though Theo assumes Alvin meant that he has to give it back after he wins. As he sleeps, Theodore dreams of different holes he successfully putts into. Theodore follows the same technique Alvin first told him during practice (of closing his eyes to putt and then counting to three). He misses the first hole, despite Derek saying he made it. Derek distracts Tiffany, the girl after Theo, and she's unsure if she'll be able to win as the result of Derek's taunts. Faced with a destroyed confidence, Theodore boasts it by carrying out the same ritual Alvin did on him. Simon informs Alvin of Theodore's bet with Derek, and when they go to the park they learn Theodore lost to Tiffany. Fortunately for Alvin he is able to keep his game, considering Tiffany made a new bet with Derek, and Alvin lets Derek keep his drone.
