http://www.golfdigest.com/story/10_rules_jim_mackay First sight is best sight. - Meh. Architects (try to) fool you all the time. And, I would say, nothing involving "sight" is best. Read with your feet, too. - This is the only tip that should be in this article, which should be titled "Take an AimPoint clinic." Speed doesn't always kill. - Phil also three-putts a lot from five feet and in because he jams putts in. Yes, if you can hit your line within a few tenths of one degree, take a little break out and hit it firmly. Develop an insurance read. - This one doesn't really say anything other than "I don't mind slow play." One read for bent, two for Bermuda. - Uhhhh… okay? Unless he's talking exclusively about short putts, the physics doesn't back this one up much at all. Your partner must love the read. - That's fine advice if you're playing with a partner, yes. The best look: behind the hole. - I still disagree that any "look" is best. Be wary of plumb-bobbing. - No shit Jim. It doesn't work AT ALL. Know the local topography. - Nah. Almost never applies, and can persuade you to go against everything else. The only topography that matters is VERY local - the topography between your ball and the hole. Respect the comebacker. - Or, if you don't jam all your putts like Phil Mickelson, just tap them in. What are your thoughts? For those of you who haven't taken an AimPoint class, too, I'm curious: why not?
