Learning how to deal with these two issues is one of the toughest parts of the golf game to improve, and usually it takes a lot of practice and experience before you are able to make any significant change. However, there are some things you can do to help you improve your consistency on the greens and help you to sink more putts.

Examine the grain first: The term 'grain' is simply the direction is which the grass grows. This can be determined by looking for the 'shine' or 'sheen' of the putting surface. When the green reflects the sunlight and appears brighter, you are looking down grain. Putts down grain, or with the grain, will usually run faster.

When you are walking to the green, study the general slope of the land. A good rule of thumb to remember is that most greens are built higher at the back and lower toward the front. This will definitely impact how you play a shot with clubs from golf clubs for sale online store on the green. It's also good to know when you're chipping up to the green in your approach.

For the beginning golfer, when you understand contour and grain, you can put the two together and think of putts this way:

Putts that are running with the grain will tend to "run" faster, so you will need to adjust your putting "force" accordingly. In other words, you won't have to hit the ball as hard to make it go the same distance.

When you are putting cross-slope and your putts are running with the grain they will break more and must take this into account when you are lining up your shot with taylor made r11 driver.

When you have to putt downhill and with the grain, your putts will not only run faster but they will break more. In this case, strike the ball with less force and let gravity take care of the rest.

The opposite, of course, is also true. If you are putting uphill and against the grain, expect your putts to run slower and break less. In this case, put a little extra on the ball to get it up the hill and to overcome the break. The rule of thumb when judging a break, and the size of the break, is to use plumb bobbing. Golfers have been using this technique for years and the reason why is because it works!

If the ball is to the left, the putt with clubs from r11 driver for sale online shop will generally break right to left. And, of course, it will break left to right if the ball is to the right. This is not an exact science, but it will helps give you some idea of where the ball will go and you can plan your putt accordingly.

If you keep of all of this in mind the next time you putt, you should notice an improvement in your putting. But nothing, and I mean nothing, takes the place of good old practice.
