Paige Spiranac on Reading Greens (Video)

Paige did this video for Masters Week with ideas to help improve your greens-reading. It has some good tips in it.

I'll add a couple of my own as well.

  • I like to walk all the way around my putt so I can see it from every angle. I find that getting a 360° view helps me see the slopes in the green better.
  • And while Paige mentioned reading the green from the halfway point to improve your feel, I tend to break putts into 2, 3 or even 4 segments and get a feel for the speed at each of them, starting at the spot closest to the hole. It helps me make a better guess at how fast the putt really is.

Greens-reading is as much an art as a science. Some days you'll be better at it than others. But that doesn't mean you can't find a process that works for you more often than not. So don't be afraid to experiment.
