    Pete,
    What really tell you if it right to left or otherwise. I know there some slight incline or decline on either side but what do usually see or look for. Is the shading, the flow of the grains of grass or the way it was mowed. Thanks!

  2. By what I said, looking around the outside edges of the green, looking for the high spots and low spots. This really just comes from practice and experience. There is no real science to reading greens other then having small tid bits of information like I said in the tip. The “shading” is part of grain on the greens. This is typically from Bermuda grass. I will have a tip soon on Grain. Thanks.

    Is plumb bobing a a reliable way to read the break?

      James,

      I’ve never been one to do this. You really just have to try it and see if you like it. See any tour players doing it anymore. I can’t think of any.

    Reading the green and then trying to figure out the slope AND speed always confuse me. And then there’s the grain! Ugh!
