    Sounds like a lot of work but it would be worth it.

    Im ok with the distance its the break that get's me.

    Knowing how much 2 move the marker or how much 2 miss the ding.

    I miss a lot of putts especially on fast moving dots.

    but that what happens when ya have 2 guess at it.

    I find if i am 15 or more away dryspot & the dots r moving really fast, i usually aim 2 boxes =4 feet into the break. if they are moving  fast normal, if u could say ,,,i aim1 box from 15 or more away, slow dots = 1/2 a box. Any thing closer & you r shooting in an arc. when that happens try the reverse camera shot and move the arrow where u think the middle of the arc is or where the fastest dots are. then use the lenght adjustment. The arrow will be 7 or so feet before the pin,, not just off the side then you hit to the arrow and let it arc back towards the flag. If you hit it your a hero. If you come with 1-2 feet be happy your not 4 or 5 feet away lol.

    Without considering other factor, as a matter of courtesy, at which distance should a putt be "given" to another player?

    Give no putts of any length on hole #15 at Bethpage when the pin is on the lower tier.  Unless, of course, it's a putt for a loss.

    Anything under 3ft is what I do.     Except for a few holes... like Beth #15 as D said above, maybe St.A #2.  I also won't give a putt if your putting for the match... unless your on the edge of hole.

    Now saying that....  I missed a 1.6ft putt the other day... ball went sideways instead of straight.

    Grid squares are all 2foot by 2 foot. Hence, 5 grids equal 10 feet.

    Which lines are you referring to blitz...

    ...or do you mean the lines on the putter pal?
