At that time Shinnecock’s greens measured in the 4- to 5-foot range and even then they were considered outrageously sloped severely undulating and very difficult to putt. Come this June 14 these same greens will roll at 12-foot green-speeds requiring the most deft green reading and putting touches on earth. Good luck fellas.
I’m simply saying that the same look and feel “previews” are as beneficial to your putting as they are to your short game especially when you consider the contours and speeds of today’s greens.
If you currently don’t use a preview stroke try it — and give it a least a month. Always make your preview strokes while focusing on your aim line and visualizing the putt’s roll from start to finish.
