As you’ve probably experienced, wet greens are quite slow. What you may not know is wet greens also tend to break less than dry greens. To address the speed issue, we recommend lining up your putt using the actual hole as your target, but then move the ball back in your mind by the desired amount and putt to the new target. If on the practice green, you noticed that you needed to use a 12-foot stroke to make a 10-foot putt, then you should include a 20% increase in your target distance for every putt. To manage the amount of break, remember the harder you have to hit the ball to combat the slow green speed, the less your ball will respond to the break.
