SG365 - Day 24 – Read the green, from far away.

Today’s idea comes from my caddying days in Scotland. If you are playing a new course and unsure of how the greens break and how they are built, try this.

Once you’ve hit your approach shot and you’re either walking or riding up to the green, have a good look around. You’ll see the lay of the land and get a better idea of any slopes on the green.

Typically, I see people reading putts only when they are over the top of the ball, on the green beside it. It’s so much harder to see the break of a putt from that close. Starting your reading process from afar gives you a broad overview that can give you a sense of what the ball is going to do when you make the putt. The more information you have, the better your chance of getting it close. #readthegreen #overview #maketheputt #coursemanagement365
