IS THERE RE­ALLY A POINT?

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE - GAVIN EL­LIOT, SUS­SEX

Since pros re­move their glove to al­legedly pro­vide a “bet­ter feel” for a putt, can we look for­ward to the re­moval of shoes on the green to help read the de­gree of slope?

Per­son­ally, I do not see how one can ac­cu­rately mea­sure a two-de­gree slope by stand­ing astride, as sug­gested by the Aim Point method of read­ing greens.

Still, the proof will no doubt emerge in time as the putting stats of the known users can be com­pared with past per­for­mance. Me? I will con­tinue with my “hit and hope” method!
