Remember Rivers And Fountains For Tough Putts

Putting is difficult enough on a flat surface, but when you put most amateur golfers on any kind of slope, their defense mechanisms go up and what should be a makeable putt turns into a lag.

Next time you’re faced with an uphill or downhill breaking putt, use the “rivers and fountains” demonstration. The idea is that, like rivers, downhill putts reach a fall line and then travel straight thereafter, while uphill putts act more like a fountain in that they start straight, but as they lose speed or momentum, the ball falls takes the break.
