Lining Up Breaking Putts Make a line on the practice green so that you can start your putts on the correct line that allows for the break of the putt and also put a line on your ball so that you know that you are lining up the putt correctly
Finding The Grain The grain of a green usually grows towards large bodies of water or the setting sun, use this little trick of scraping the green to learn and understand where and what grain is
Missing Putts On The High Side Play more break than you think necessary, playing too little break makes for longer second putts because every rotation of the ball past the hole is moving away from the hole and makes your next putt longer
