Where does the water flow?

Need a simple way to think about reading greens? Imagine this… You get to the practice green, and all of a sudden, the clouds open up and it starts to pour down rain. As you look around the green, you’ll notice that the water starts to flow off the green. In some places, it runs off the green faster than other places. In some places it runs to the right, and in other places, the water runs to the left. Now imagine that the make-believe water is actually the break of the green. If you hit your ball, it will likely move much like our “pretend” scenario and follow the running of the water. Now comes the hard part, go practice and think about “break” with a new frame-of-mind when reading greens.
