Many have been using the Plumb Bob method to help read greens for over 20 years. In this video, we are going to put it to the test. Paul (a PGA Professional) has been using a method called AimPoint, which is a green reading system that has been tried and tested at the highest level. I will tell you that PGA tour pros like Keegan Bradley, Max Homa, and Adam Scott subscribe to the Aim Point Method. While the likes of Rickey Fowler and many others rely on the Plumb Bob method… The bottom line both work, if used correctly.
Today -We will be looking at how the Plumb Bob method holds up against the AimPoint method and really see if the Plumb Bob has been helping or hindering us all over the years and if we are using it correctly.
Keep in mind: One of the key differences between the two methods is that Aimpoint Putting relies on the golfer’s ability to interpret the slope of the green using their body weight, while Plumb-Bob Putting relies on the golfer’s ability to visualize the slope using a plumb bob.
