Geoff Mangum on Reading Putts 1 of 7: Perceiving the Fall Line

Geoff Mangum of the PuttingZone.com describes how to perceive the fall line straight uphill-downhill thru the hole on a flat-but-tilted green surface as one of three keys to predicting the curving path of breaking putts (3 factors for break: slope steepness and direction, green rolling speed, and ball rolling speed).

Nice – This series makes the intuitive nature of putting possible on a

Exstreamly good video! But stop moving the fucking camera!!

This assumes a planar putting surface around the hole, and thus the theory
would often only be valid for short-range putts.

…or on a completely planar green. He says this, however, “…more or

Nice job. I have a much better und understanding of the fall line.

Geoff Mangum - August 24, 2013

That’s right Eric, but you don’t know HOW MUCH valid is required or how to
adjust to “not perfectly valid”. Using words like “planar” means you don’t
know reality but think you do.

CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIST!!!!!!! Whoops, wrong Geoff Mangum. Sorry,

Great job! I’m a fan already. I’m pretty good at reading greens, but this
is next level for me so I’m going to purchase your book for a drink and
myself! Thank you!
