When it comes to green reading, we need to have a very simple understanding of how side tilt and slope affect our ball.

In an attempt to find the high and low points of the green around a hole, picture a clock face with 12 o’clock signifying the high point and 6 o’clock signifying the low point.

From there, you can use the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions to determine which way the ball is going to break.
