GOLF PUTTING TIPS: STUDY PARALLEL GREENS

golf putting tipsOne of the best golf putting tips is to study parallel greens.

The reason why the study of parallel greens remains one of the top golf putting tips is it provides more information about their pin placements, degree of slope, etc.

Most golf courses have what I refer to as parallel greens.

That is, the tee box for the  existing hole is located parallel to the green for a subsequent hole.

Unfortunately, many players fail to give the subsequent green- the parallel green- much attention.

You may have heard similar recommendations on other blogs, aricles as well as  on some golf putting videos and dvds.

Here is what I suggest you do

While you and other members in  your foursome are waiting on the group ahead, before hitting your tee shots, you should be studying the parallel  green of any subsequent  hole.

You should make a mental note of the location of the pin placement (hole location) as well as the slope and flow of the green, particularly if you are unfamiliar with the course and in the absence of hole location flags.

You also should study the surrounding area of each parallel green to determine how any bunkers or water may come into play as well as other areas to avoid, such as deep rough around part of the green.

If you study each parallel green you should be much more prepared and feel much more confident on how to play your approach shot to such green.

Instead of merely standing around, waiting for the group ahead to move on,  study any parallel greens in the area and see if it does not improve your game and lower your golf score. This will improve your golf game tremendously.

You may find this to be one of the best golf putting tips of all.
