Golf Putting Tip: Read the Green from the Fairway

Posted by GolfTipEditor | | ,

Symptom:  Mis-reading putts, both for line and distance.  The frequent "I didn't see that break AT ALL!"
Description:  Don't wait until you are on the putting green to read the green; try to read the green from far away, as you walk up the fairway or drive up the cart path towards the green. 
Why it works:  Often it's much easier to see the overall slope or tendency of a green from a distance.  This is especially true when the entire green feeds one direction or another without much undulation, such as to the water, or away from a mountain, or back-to-front, etc.  You should also take the opportunity to read everybody's putts from a distance, to give you more insight into your own putt.  So don't daydream in the cart as you drive to the green, study the green instead!
