Reading Greens

The ability to read the correct line and speed of a putt is an important skill to develop. To help develop such a skill, consider the following points.

Speed

Controlling the speed of your put is vitally important.

The quicker the ball is rolling, the less the ball will break.

The optimum pace to hit a putt is one that would take the ball 15 inches to 17 inches past the hole. This speed ensures that the ball holds its line.

True Down Slope Direction (TDSD)

The momentum of the stroke makes the ball roll along a straight line initially (we have stated the relationship between speed and break).

However, as the ball gets closer to the hole the ball begins to lose its speed. As it loses its speed the ball will start to look for and go down the true downslope of the green as gravity starts to take over.
