Michael Breed discusses the proper way to approach putts that amateur golfers tend to panic over: downhill, uphill and side hill putts. One of the common mistakes that golfers will make on uneven level putts is trying to hit the golf ball with a different part of the putter head to take speed off of or add speed onto the roll of the ball. It is essential, though, for all of these situations, to hit putts with the center of the putter face to maintain maximum control over the ball. Michael also talks about some of the key components to making these types of putts, like finding imperfections in the green and imagining a line that accounts for the break and avoids these imperfections to go into the hole.
