Sean Foley on the importance of green reading

"Understanding how to read greens is going to help people shoot lower scores faster than almost any other part of the game that they can work on."

Ralph Bauer: OK, Sean, thanks for doing this for us. You’ve done such a great job with your career and one thing you’ve always done is identify the issues. Is that fair to say. Is that a good starting point for your coaching?

Sean Foley: Yeah, I think it is. There’s no way that either of us would ever go to a hospital and not have them use measurement to assess what’s wrong with us. The doctor may know very well. He’s got experience. But I still want them to verify it.

I think with Tour Read, your app, that’s what you have the ability to do. It’s not opinion. In our business, you can’t live off opinion. You’re helping people with ultimately the potential of them achieving their dreams. So of course we are obviously into measurement and data to ensure that we’re doing the best job that we can.

And I think as it comes down to amateurs, you know how many times I see amateurs hit a putt. And to make a putting stroke is not incredibly difficult as a skill set goes.

They make a putt, and go, man, I can’t believe it went that way. And so people push putts. They pull putts. They leave it short. They hit it too far.

But the key in putting is what you guys have taught me… You’ve got to be able to match the speed with the line of the putt. How can you work on your speed if you don’t know what the line is? Because obviously the line is going to be imperative to that.

So understanding how to read greens is going to help people shoot lower scores faster than almost any other part of the game that they can work on.
