To all you "Center of the Green Always" unless you have a tour card; math strategy wonks. Does your distance decides every thing consider....
Does the Center of the green bring your ball a lot closer to a pond, OB, dense tree line or foot high rough?
And even if your ball ends up exactly in the center, will you have a super slick double breaking downhill putt with a six foot break.
Distance is a depth miss not a horizontal miss, doesn't matter with aim.
Not really, because the green is bounded from all things you have considered, so in fact the center of the green is mostly always the furthest point away from trouble from the left or right. If have water left, and high rough right, were do you want the ball to land that is furthest from both things, the center.
The dreaded super slick double breaking down hill putt, is very rare, so not much of a concern. If a green is that crazy, most putts would be tough. Also, you are still more likely to end up with bogey from chipping around a green, than three putting from a putt like that. Odds are still in favor of going for the center of the green.
