TPI Friday Fix: Green Reading

TPI-greenreadvideo

Titleist Performance Institute put out an excellent video that includes some excellent green reading strategies.  There is a lot to digest but it makes a lot of sense.

Here are the steps outlined in the video:

  1. Assess the shape of the green and where the low points on the sides of the green are.
  2. Walk the highest point or middle of the green and split the green into quadrants.
  3. Once it’s time to putt, isolate the quadrant you are in and focus on that.
  4. Walk to the ball and look at the line your putting on.
  5. Read the putt from low point and look especially at the 5 foot circle around the hole.
  6. Walk behind the hole and look from the hole to your golf ball.
  7. Commit to the putt.
