Chuck or Craig, I took a lesson on the Aim Point system and found it really helps me read greens. What are y’all thoughts on this method of reading greens?

Hello Mike. Aim point has it's merits. There are plenty of players that use this approach. Green reading is difficult. Anything to help you make more putts consistently is a good thing.

In terms of speed of a putt and the amount of borrow required, is it correct to think a slower putt would gererally have more break than that of a quicker putt given a slower putt has more time available to break?

Hello Sean. You could think that way a little bit. A slower or dying putt will tend to turn offline sooner, than a faster or quicker moving roll. But, it won't always be the case on really severe slopes.

I am having trouble with distance control from longer putts. I found that going back to my old grip (right hand low) is more comfortable and I have more confidence. Is this a mistake? Should I give it more time with the left hand low with longer putts? Thanks love the web site!!!!

Hello Mark. Switching to lead hand low is a process when trying to learn distance control. Sadly, it doesn't happen over night. And, your usual or conventional way is already trained. Give it some more time. It should settle in.

As always, well done. No tricks or stunts, just using common sense in an easy-to-understand video.

I think I have heard TV commentators say that, for a right handed golfer a right to left breaking putt is more "comfortable" than a left to right breaking putt. Is that correct and if so is the reason for this "comfort" feature understood? Incidentally I am very pleased to see that recently you have started providing more help on on the short game, including putting, in addition to swing fundamentals. More info on game strategy (usually acquired exclusively and slowly by experience!) would be much appreciated. Regards, Gordon.

Hello Gordon. It is usually more comfortable because right handed players are trail side dominant. The feel is that the trail side can help guide better. Like hitting a draw for a right handed player. Releasing freely versus holding it off for more of a cut is more appeasing. Its more of the natural shot shape.

I do not understand why the "west" putt would be more hasardous then the "east" putt. If west were on higher ground, so a downhill left to right, I'd agree, but I don't think it is. Am I missing a point?

I think you are referring to a point in the video where I was talking about hitting that putt and in that case it was actually downhill but you're right it obviously won't always be, it just happened to be in this case

Is the color code on that graphic correct? Shouldn’t the SE quadrant be green and the NW quadrant be red? The chipping video seems to suggest that. If anything, you’d prefer uphill straight or uphill slightly right to left putts, yes? But that quadrant in the video is red.

Putting distance control is a critical piece of shooting lower scores. My Compass Drill will help you get a feel for the greens from all four critical angles. This putting drill will also help you get a feel for the grain if you're putting on Bermuda.

But more importantly, this drill will help you think through putting strategy to help you reduce or eliminate three putts. Most amateur golfers average 3-5 three putts per round. Imagine cutting 3-5 strokes off your score by doing nothing but thinking about a putt differently! That's exactly what this putting video will help you do.

You don't even need to change your stroke, but since you probably already have to left hand low following this video series, you can easily shave 5-10 strokes a round off your scores if you've been struggling with your putting. That's a HUGE difference in your scores, so make sure you put these putting tips into your game today!
