Why you Should Putt to the High Spot on Big Breaking Putts Senior Golf Tip (Video)

Okay so why should you hit on the high side, on the pro side on a big breaking putt? Well very simple if you imagine we’ve got a putt as I come back to the camera I’ve got a putt that goes from the left to the right if we don’t hit on the high spot there that ball hasn’t got a chance of actually moving in towards the hole. If we hit on the low side which is at the bottom of the slope which means that way the ball is only going to succeed in going one place and that’s further and further away from where the hole is. So when you’ve got a big long putt or any sort of putt I think it’s going to break a big break, you hit for the high.

The high side is what they call the pro side you hear it so both things mean the same thing. Go on the high side and by going up the high side you will -- the ball will go to that point and it will fall back towards the hole. And that’s the key it’s falling in towards the hole. But if you never get on the high side or the pro side to start with that ball is always going to be moving away from the hole and away from you making the job much more difficult. So its as simple as that; high side, pro side you’ve got a big break make sure that ball gets all the way up there to give yourself a chance to; a) reach the hole and b) for the ball to have a chance of actually falling into the hole. It’s as simple as that. Next time you go on to the big breaks remember high side pro side and you should get that putt more or less up to the hole more times than you want.
