Roll It Down the Line

Every putt has one true line. The perfect union between slope and speed. The highest possible breakpoint and slowest pace that still reaches the hole are an ideal pairing. To roll the ball on this trajectory is the surest method to make more putts. When these factors are in play, the hole is seemingly larger. There is also an increased likelihood of luck. This is a method for those who like to play the odds. It’s a fine way to win matches and pester your pals. Being a great putter is a desirable reputation to have.
