It's critical to putt well if a golfer hopes to shoot a good score. We'll show you how to navigate the putting green by reviewing the following seven terms.
Right-to-Left Break occurs when the contours of the putting green cause the ball to fall off to the left. This means a golfer must aim right of the hole to account for the slope.
Left-to-Right Break occurs when the contours of the putting green cause the ball to fall off to the right. This means a golfer must aim left of the hole to account for the slope.
An undulation is a subtle slope that is built into the putting green, which can affect the break and speed of a putt.
Pin high means that a golfer's approach shot lands level with the hole. An approach shot that lands pin high signals good distance control.
Speed is the rate at which the ball travels across the green from impact to when the ball stops rolling. Maintaining good speed on the greens is crucial to sinking more putts.
In order to make more putts, a golfer must aim in the correct direction or the area of where the hole is located, while accounting for break.
