    This is not all my own work but it makes putting very simple. its the JC method but i always thought the explanations where complicated.

     

    This is how i do it i look at my put and say its 10 foot +3 i take 3 from the 10 leaves me with 7 

    i put 7 in my calculator, then i look at one of the faster dots and i count how o long it takes to move across 1 grid.  6 seconds = 1 , 9 seconds = 0.75, 12 seconds 0.5 , 18 seconds 0.33.

    so i take my 7 and multiply buy the number you just got for instance in this example its a 9 second read so 0.75 this gives 5.25.

    next step is to go chip mode from behind and move the aimer so the vertical line of the box is over the pin this will give you the half distance of a grid. Then i take my ruler and measure the marker to the flag its normally 2 cm but it varies between views. 

    lets say its 2, so i multiply my 5.25 by 2 get 10.5 and i move my aimer 10.5 mm using my ruler hit the ding and it will go in.

     

    For down hill putts you add to the distance so a 10 -3 will be 13. and also note when it comes to puts that are more than -4 work out what you think it is then double it

     

    good luck hope this helps working pretty well for me if u have the speed of the dots right and you ding it goes in nearly every time

    As clear as mud. I'd sooner drop it in or lip out and take 2 rather than faff about like an old tart, holding up other players.

    Huh?  You just arbitrarily decide to double it if it's more than 4 in up or downhill?

    Well, I kinda hate to admit it, but I just gave it a go by playing CB hole 1 and it actually worked.  The putt was 14 feet, 5 inch down and the maths said 42.75mm of break at the flag and I'll be damned if that ball didn't drop in the hole.

    It's not something I could ever be bothered to do during a round and I wonder how it would work on putts with varying amounts of break along the line but for a fairly even break it does seem to have something.

    Everything that followed contradicted that 1st sentence.

    the thing is once you get used to doing it it dont take that long. id rather take an extra 20 seconds over a putt n hole it

    Somone else came up with the method originally this is my own take on it

    Yeah fair play to you, it's just not for the hard of thinking types like me.
