Better Putting

Thirty to forty percent of all the golf shots we hit are putts. Learning to judge pace and direction on putts requires practice. Reading the borrow or curve on a putt starts as soon as you walk onto the green. Is one side of the green higher than the other? Will you be putting uphill or downhill?

Try to get a feel for this as you walk up to your ball.

When you line up your putt from behind, don’t just look between the ball and the hole – look to the right and left side as well to better judge the possible slope.

Observe the reaction of a playing partner’s ball if they are putting on a similar line.

It is difficult to be absolutely precise about how much to allow on any putt – even for the experienced golfer – so long as you have taken these commonsense factors into consideration quite often the first guess will be the best.
