Want to make more putts? Chances are you may need to play more break.
Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of spending some time with John Graham, a PGA Professional who works out of Webster, New York.
John, if you are not familiar with him, is a specialist in putting (and short game) with an emphasis on AimPoint Green Reading. While myself, a fellow professional, and the top ranked Canadian in the American Junior Golf Association rankings were all there to specifically learn about the simplified AimPoint Express, it was the first it of instruction we had with John that really opened our eyes.
Working with some of the best professionals in the world, including a Masters champion, John has found that one of the things most people do really poorly is something fundamental to putting – proper aim. We all tend not to play enough break.
You know all those putts that go low past the cup and you think you did not hit them hard enough? More than likely your speed might have been okay but you did not nearly play enough break.
John demonstrates this in a video he posted to his YouTube channel all the way back in 2012. Even if you are not planning to using AimPoint to read your putts it provides valuable information on how you can make more of them.
