Golf Tip: Reading Greens and Putting
It is important to take time to learn to read the greens in order to make the appropriate adjustments to your stroke. When judging a green, the latter half of a putt is much more important than the first half of the putt. This is due to the fact that the ball is losing speed as it travels across the green. When a putt loses speed, the characteristics of a green have a stronger influence on the path of the ball. To master distance control, you must learn to read the green and play your stroke accordingly so you place the ball close to the hole, or sink a putt in fewer strokes.
