As a Tour player and somewhat of a genius around the greens — and I would consider anybody who is about a 6-8 handicap or better as somewhat genius — I consider myself as someone who is good at assessing the lie. 

Above I talk you through what I think about when predicting how the ball, club and ground will react based on various conditions.

Work on assessing your lie and predicting what the spin does to the rollout.
