Using the Break to Your Advantage

Using the Break to Your Advantage

What is the one thing 99.9% of amateur golfers are guilty of when it comes to putting? If you chose “leaving too many putts short” then you’re correct! But there is something else even more critical that is a putt killer: Not playing nearly enough break. 

Year after year, that seems to be one critical thing the majority of amateurs just can’t seem to wrap their heads around. It seems far easier to get upset with yourself for leaving putts woefully short. Knowing the putt never had a chance stings much worse than missing a putt on the incorrect side (otherwise known as the amateur side, or the low side) due to not playing enough break.


For most players, this issue is a result of not knowing how to properly read the break. While there are plenty of drills you can try on your own, utilizing The Perfect Putter can help you quickly develop your green reading skills.

Where to Start

Visualization plays such an enormous part of playing good golf. To help develop and broaden your sense of visualizing putts, this drill is key

This drill is perfect because it helps with putts with noticeable break, as well as those putts with subtle break. Practicing like this will help morph your mind into seeing little nuances that you would have never noticed before practicing with The Perfect Putter.

The next time you hit the course for the next few weeks, pay extra close attention to how you’re missing your putts. You can take it a step even further by logging that information on your scorecards. Denote your initial read and whether you missed the putt on the low or high side.

More is always better when it comes to gathering your personal statistics, especially in putting. They provide a true sense of direction and will allow you to validate the changes being made.

However, nothing compares to instant feedback, and that’s exactly what you’ll get by using The Perfect Putter. After a few days, you’ll find that reading putts just got a whole lot easier.
