Gauge Green Speed

Do you struggle dialing in the speed of the greens during a round of golf?

Does it take you several holes to figure out your distance control?

If so, then here’s a super simple drill that you can do before your round to gauge the speed of the greens.

The best part is it takes less than 5-minutes and by the time your done you should have pretty good idea of the green speeds.

    Quite the Chap, you did a video of some indoor practice routines that emphasized the follow through and then how to start the back swing. I thought I had saved them but cannot find them now. Wondering if you could repeat them again since it is now that time of year up herein Washington where indoor practice is about all you can do.

    This of course assumes that the practice green is the same speed as the greens on the course. In my 55+ years of playing this game this is not always the case…

    I have used this tip and it is right as rain – of course we don’t play on courses that the pros play but his should help take a few is not several strokes off your round. I saved five from the previous round. Thanks Chap keep it up…

    Really good, simple, and quick putting drill to do before heading out. And always so humorously presented! Thanks!

    Good tip but must remember that this is only helpful at that time of day. As the day goes on, the green speeds change as they dry out.
