Green Reading Basics 101 With David Orr
It was an honor to film with David Orr at his home course, Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club in Southern Pines, NC.
David Orr is one of the leading putting coaches in the world. His teaching method is based on research, not on theory. ‘Never guess what you can measure’ is one of his key philosophies. David’s research and teaching protocol led him to the PGA Tour where he’s worked with world-class players such as Justin Rose and Suzann Pettersen. Check out to get access to David’s personal, online putting academy and the absolute putting gold he shares there.
In this video David and I are going right to the foundation of good putting – GREEN READING! In this first part of my two-part fundamental lesson with David we tackle how to determine slope and break and the skills you need to focus on – read, speed, line THEN aim – to improve your putting performance.
