Change Ball Position To Play Enough Break

____________________________________________________________

Weekend golfers tend to underplay breaking putts and tour pros overplay them. The faster the green, the more the golf ball is going to break. You will wind up closer to the hole more often if you overplay the break. Keeping the golf ball on the high side of the cup - or the "pro side" as it's called - will help it die down to the hole.

Changing the position of the golf ball relative to your stance can help on breaking putts. Generally the golf ball should be just ahead of the center of your stance. From there, try moving the golf ball one inch forward in your stance for left-to-right putts, and moving it back in your stance for right-to-left putts. You'll have a better chance of playing enough break.
