Feel the break in the dark
Everybody has picked what they thought was a no-doubt break on a putt only to watch the ball stay straight or turn in the opposite direction. It happens because your eyes can sometimes be fooled into a misread. To improve your ability to detect a putt’s break, rely on what your feet and equilibrium are telling you – not just your eyes. Last year at the tour stop in New Orleans, Jamie Lovemark practised at dusk using a glow stick to mark the cup. He read the greens with his feet and nearly won the tournament.
