1. The greens were mapped by George Kosch using a device called, "Breakmaster Digital Green Reader" (http://breakmaster.com/). This is the first version of my project to help understand the break on our wonderful greens. I decided to simply upload the images to a website rather than try to create a book since everyone has a phone and/or printer and can do whatever they feel like with these pages.
2. This is Version 1.0 (July 7 2019). I will add version numbers, dates and notes on the changes in this area so that you can print a fresh updated copy or simply know about the changes for your own notes.
3. What do those numbers mean?
- Slope of .5 = very little break
- 1.0 is break you should say, "looks like it goes that way". In other words - noticable.
- 1.5 is break you will see without much trouble
- 2 means your ball will move so aim accordingly.
- 3 - 5 means you are playing at BGCC so "deal with it because it's going to break" (number 7 anyone or perhaps 15 or even 12 YIKES)
Finally, those little circles are areas that were below .5 for that small part of the green which means "flat as a pancake"!
4. If you are using these maps and find errors that I have made in slopes or simply want me to redo an area of any green please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to update any areas of concern and upload the changes.
5. Can you use "Green Books"? Yes, ==>> http://breakmaster.com/Greens_Books_are_Legal.html
6. How to print and laminate:
a. Print out the Small or Large greens.
b. Combine #1/#2 back to back and do the same for all 18.
c. Then using a laminator (Staples has one for about $70) you can create your Greens Book.
Here is what I used:
If you use the small images you can get 8 greens per page. The large ones will be half that.
