Claude Harmon on the Tour Read™ Golf app: 

“I think the app is fantastic. I helped beta test it. If you want to get better and if you want to improve, one of the easiest low hanging fruits is to learn how to read greens better. If you’re struggling with green reading you’re going to love this one.”

“Green reading is a life lesson that you can learn that will help you throughout the course of your golfing career. I’ve tried it. My guys at my academy in Dubai love it. We’re having all of our Juniors do it. We use the app and we have the player read the putt first. How far is this distance? How much does it break? Then we use the app to measure the putt. We don’t even hit the putts.”

“Go check out the app. It will definitely help you read greens better. If you struggle with green reading. If you aren’t making the putts that you think you should be making. The app will help you improve. Green reading is a skill that you can practice and if you work with this, it will help lower your scores.”
