  1. Wow! What a great lesson! I can’t count how many times I have “guessed” about where to aim this shot. Some were good, others no so. but at best a guess.
    Once again,
    Thanks a lot for this tip,talk about a stroke saver!

  2. How long if a putt do you use and does that change with the length of the shot you are hitting?

    • Donald,

      There is no exact science to it. Just bend down behind the ball as you would do for a putt and you will imagine the break. I imagine the putt is from the ball to the hole and visualize it breaking the right amount. Give this a try. I put the ball in front so you could see where the hole is.

  3. Yes, how long a putt do you consider? Also, doesn’t it depend on how hard you hit your putt? How do you take that into consideration

    • Richard,

      You guys are going to get all technical on me. Just bend down. Look at the ball and the hole. Imagine it breaking to the hole with a strength that it would fall into the hole not be rammed way past the hole. Of course if you hit the ball really hard it wouldn’t break. So enough that it breaks. I put the ball in front of the ball I was hitting so you could see where the hole was.

    The greatest tip ever! That is amazing. Had 6 sidehill lies yesterday and hit every one in the wrong place because I was guessing. Wow, can’t wait for my next sidehill lie.

      It sure is yet all I got was crickets. No guessing anymore. I guessed for years. Not anymore. Glad you see it’s importance.
