Golf Tip – Map the Greens

map the greens

Touring professionals will map the greens of the course they will play in an upcoming tournament.  Use a small book that you can carry in your pocket.  On a slow day at your home course or very early in the morning, go from hole to hole and make a map for each green.  Determine where the four most likely hole locations will be and hit putts or roll a ball toward the locations.  On your map, draw little lines and arrows to show how the ball will break.  Often, there are slopes and breaks that you cannot see, and the map will help you remember which way your putt will move.  Take a quick look at your book as you approach the green to remind yourself of the slope.
