Far more in-depth than yardage books sold at most golf courses, the Green Book has been marketed heavily. Released this past April, Green Books is a four-and-a-half-by-seven-inch guidebook written in a verdant, verdant style, complete with needle-pointed, colored lines illustrating slopes and harshness of putt surfaces to within a few centimeters.
The Strakaline Golf green-reading book provides the contours of a golf green, areas surrounding the green, elevation changes, and, best of all, which direction the ball should travel in the final 10 feet of the putt. Take the guesswork out of green-reading A Strakaline team member will digitally map your courses Strakaline Golf Green-Reading Book. The Strakaline Golf Green Reading Book is perfect for country club members who play the course several times a year and would benefit from knowing subtle changes to greens.
Why we love the Strakaline Golf Green-reading book Technology is taking over the greens right now, not surprising, as it has done for golf swings for the last few years. Technology can help us be better readers of golf greens, and this can make us better golfers.
We developed a specific book that allows recreational golfers to see greens slants quickly, saving time reading putting shots from different angles, and helping to avoid bad reads and missed shots. I have seen a few caddies who are incredibly adept at reading greens. Don Donatello is not a fan of knowing the exact thing, as that takes the feeling away from reading the greens and the skills.
When caddying, I have seen just as many putts made using the book on a greens properly as missed using one wrong. We have never had a greens book in Augusta, added Spieth, and it seems like I am finding really good spaces on the greens out there, actually feeling putts.
Since the introduction of the books, which are read from the green, the percentages for one-putts have soared, three-putts are all but eliminated, and players and caddies do not have any work around the greens. The goal of limiting the green-reading books is to make sure players and caddies only use their eyes and their senses to help them read the lines of play around the putting green. Unlike in George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four, a green-reading book helps players identify which direction a putt breaks, as well as the proportions of the slope on various sections of the green. My Head Pro lent copies to a number of better players at the club who could putt, but had trouble reading the greens, and they found the books immediately useful.
Talor Gooch, who won the RSM Classic, the final Tour event to allow books, used the book that can read greens on his way to his first win, Talor Gooch, but said he was happy to see it gone. It is all going to be thrown in the garbage can. Bryan Wackers sole worry is not just that green-reading books are banned, but that every single yardage book that the caddies spent thousands - tens of thousands - of dollars for in the past 5, 10, 15, 20 years is also banned, and that we are going to have to get all-new books starting in the New Year, because greens on our yardage books are using the same technology that is used on their restricted-arrows books. Matt Minister, the caddie of the PGA Tours player of the year for the year in 2021, Patrick Cantlay, is also okay to see yardage and greens-book ban. The ban was enacted when the PGA Tour Players Advisory Board voted in June to outlaw a complicated, hard-to-read greens book.
Golf Central The PGA Tour proposed rules limiting the use of green books The PGA Tour is set to cut down on the information players and caddies can access regarding the use of green-reading materials. Starting January 2022, due to changes by the PGA Tour, I will not be able to use any of those Greens Books or Yardage Books anymore. Golflogix has sent out three FREE books to PGA members, who may check them out themselves, or lend them out to members with difficulties reading the greens.
Less expensive than most greens fees, the Green Book is available now at about 4,500 courses across the U.S., but could soon be on sale at nearly all 14,000 courses nationwide.

The PGA Tour had to simply say, Hey, you can do what you want, but do not put any notes on your books about the greens. Greens books are a development of the game, just as forgiveness drivers are, and balls that will travel forever without turning or spinning on greens; as are shot monitors, as are distance/slope measurement devices.
Local rules provide the PGA Tour with an opportunity to set up a officially sanctioned greens book for each tournament, such that the greens drawings show only the minimum details (such as a meaningful incline, lie, or a fake lip that indicates sections of a green). The greenbook includes articles about driving safely, places of interest (What To See In Chicago), travel essays (A Canadian Road Trip), and special topics (How To Guard Your Home During Vacation Season), as well as road advice (What To Wear [In Bermuda]) and auto reviews.
