Used by hundreds of Tour Pros on the PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tours
Chart Greens with the BreakMaster (like Tour Caddies) to lower scores; this is legal!
Stop guessing the break! Read greens way the Tour Pros do and lower your scores!
OUR TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY! It was ten years ago that we shipped our first BreakMaster Digital Green Reader. Since then, we've helped thousands of golfers read and chart greens, and, most importantly, lower their scores! Have you joined their ranks by using a BreakMaster? If not, explore this site and find out how you can be lowering your scores by knowing the breaks before you putt!
ONE GREAT PUTT CAN MAKE YOUR WHOLE DAY!
Actually, it was a bunch of great putts, and a bunch of amazing reads! Congratulations to Russell Henley for a spectacular win at the Honda Classic, proving once again that a great read and a great putt go hand in hand (especially that read and putt on #14 on Sunday). No matter how far you can drive the ball, it all comes down to what you do on the green.
Great putts are made every day by golfers because of great reads on the green. And since making a putt can be the difference between a good day and a great day, you can be sure that the best players aren't reading the green through guesswork.
Think of all the precision that goes into the game... Many golfers use a GPS
device to tell the exact distance to the green. They calculate how
far each club will carry the ball, and know exactly how much
backswing to take with the short irons to get where they want to go.
Then they get to the green and all that precision goes out the door.
Why? Because, many golfers just guess the break.
On a 6 foot putt, the difference between a 1.0 degree break and a 0.5
degree break can be as much as 6 inches, and that’s more than enough to
miss the putt. Think your eyes can see the difference between a 1.0
degree and a 0.5 degree slope? If you can, please call NASA.
With so much riding on every putt, you owe it to yourself not to guess. Tour Pros know there’s only one way to be sure of the break: chart the green with the BreakMaster and make notes in a Greens Book. That way, they're playing with the same precision on
the greens that they apply to the rest of their game.
WHY CHART GREENS?
caddie and I have charted the greens on every course we've played. That
knowledge is essential to a tour player because we basically play the
same courses every year. I recommend similar due diligence for you on
courses you play a lot. Take notes on hole locations, paying attention
to breaks and direction of grain. You'll be more comfortable on the
greens - and make more putts."

CHART GREENS LIKE THE TOUR PROS DO!
you can chart greens just like the pros do with the new Custom Greens
Books from BreakMaster. The Greens Books are pocket-sized books with
blank greens pages for each of the 18 greens on a golf course. They
provide the perfect place to record your BreakMaster data for every golf
course you play. This is perfectly legal, and it's exactly what Tour Pros and their
Caddies have been doing for years (and it's one reason why they shoot
way better than you do!).
You will have the advantage over anyone else in
your foursome because you will know how the ball will break BEFORE you
hit the putt.
A Custom Greens Book is packed with each
BreakMaster purchase. More Greens Books can be purchased at our Online Store. Find out more about the Custom Greens Books by
DEGREES vs. PERCENT OF SLOPE. WHICH IS BEST?
The BreakMaster measures slope in Degrees, which we believe is the most easily understood way to display the break. But there are those in the world of golf (like our friends at Aimpoint) who like to use Percentage of Slope instead of degrees. There is a simple conversion to turn Degrees into Percent, just multiply Degrees by 1.7, and that number is Percent of Slope. To make it even easier, the PDF (below) is a chart that shows some typical Degrees into Percent conversions. The PDF chart can be printed and cut out to attach with cellophane tape to the side of the BreakMaster. Make sure you attach it on the side, not the bottom, where it might throw off the BreakMaster's reading.
