  • 2. 2. Look at the putt from behind the hole. Pace off the distance from the hole to the ball to give you an idea of how hard to stroke.

  • 4. 4. If the grain of the grass looks dull, it is growing towards you and will slow down your putt. Grass generally grows towards the west.

  • 7. 7. Watch your partner’s putts. Is the green fast or slow? Does it have a break that you did not expect? Pay particular attention to putt that is on the same line as yours.

  • 8. 8. If you’re unsure of the break on a short putt, hit the ball reasonable hard to the center of the hole. This will reduce the break that is increased with a slower putt.
