Fred Fruisen ex­plains why miss­ing a putt on the high side is bet­ter than miss­ing on the low side.

Dave Pelz, one the world’ s lead­ing short game gu­rus, con­ducted a study on putting. The study took place over years and in­volved thou­sands of putts. He com­piled data from ev­ery type of player–tour pro sand the av­er­age golf er. The study showed that re­gard­less of skill level, most golfers un­der-read putts.

The facts re­vealed that of all putts missed ,85% miss on the low side of the hole. The study also re­vealed that golfers who more reg­u­larly miss on the high side of the hole make more putts. Play­ers who reg­u­larly miss on the low side 3- putt much more of­ten be­cause on av­er­age the ball fin­ishes farther from the hole.
