Any thoughts on the grain direction ??

Mel Sole Golf School says:

Yes, here in the south we do have grain as most of the courses have bermuda greens. I always look at the cup, because there will be a “worn” edge and a “smooth” edge. The grain would be running in the direction of “worn to smooth”. Also the green will look ligher down grain and darker into the grain.

FairwayJack says:

…I always thought that greens ran in direction of smooth to worn. Pls advise if I am misunderstanding something. I believe the ball would tend to roll towards the worn side

Mel Sole Golf School says:

You are 10% correct, that was a typo. It will run “smooth to worn” Sorry about that.

Great tip! I knew to look for high and low points but I was missing that I have to look for high and low points between my ball and hole!

Excellent tip. My reading of greens has improved tremendously. It takes the guessing out and is very accurate and reliable. Thanks

Pointing did not help me at all.
he missed the chance the show how the ball rolled. there was even dew on the grass, we would have seen the line of travel. If he said Right to left, , 1 ft above the hole. then hit the ball we would have seen if he could read the greens. Some golf school!!
