Tour pros make 68.3% of putts from 6'0" when the putt is uphill and a gentle right-to-left break (1.0% to 2.0% uphill and 0.5% to 1.5% right-to-left-break).

What is their make rate when they are faced with a downhill left-to-right slider from 5'0"? (The downslope and left-to-right slope are both 2% or more)

What If EVERY Putt Got To The Hole?

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.

Today is a video newsletter that walks you through what would happen every 40 footer to got the hole.

My Thoughts

As you can see, getting every putt to the hole from lag distance is a TERRIBLE idea. This is a recipe for disaster!

I hope you enjoyed the different format this week.

See you next week!
