Four Things to Know About Reading a Green

It might take a stroke—or five—before it’s time to break out the putter, but the art of reading a green starts at tee time. Read on to learn the hidden language of each hole’s final obstacle.

1. Heed the landscape. Even if the pin is still a dimly glimpsed goal, the lay of the land can reveal a lot about how the green behaves. If there’s water nearby, particularly the ocean, the green will most likely slope towards it—though not always.

2. Know the grass. Most greens are one of two types of grass—bermuda or bent. The latter offers little resistance, but the former has a grain that can drastically affect the ball’s path. Pay attention to the angle at which bermuda grass appears lighter—the ball will likely break in that direction. When in doubt about which direction the grain faces, consider that grass typically grows toward the setting sun.

3. Weather can alter a green. A ball will travel much straighter on a soft, wet green than a dry green with firm grass. Likewise, grass tends to grow more in the afternoon, so the ball will break more drastically at 3 p.m. than in the relative calm of dawn, when earthworms still haven’t delivered the grass its coffee.

4. Shoot with confidence. Once you’ve taken in all the information—be sure to look at the green from all angles, including—decide on your shot and don’t look back. Even a miscalculated shot made with confidence will likely be better than a tentative effort. If you do miss, keep paying attention to the ball—as it passes the hole, it just might whisper what went wrong.

Golf Smarter

In playing golf, the approach you take from hole-to-hole can make or break your score. In teaching golf, the approach a teacher takes is just as important. At Golf Smarter, Jerry Chylkowski's approach starts with an assessment. He carefully inspects each student's game for kinks, then doles out small changes that are easy to implement. For more advanced players, Jerry helps make sense of all the different methods and techniques floating around the sport. But for beginners, Jerry helps establish a resistance to bad habits, such as not following through on swings or diving into the nearest bush after a poor tee shot. Either way, improvements typically start to happen immediately, lowering scores and adding enjoyment to the game in the process.
