Number 1 Green Reading Tool of Tour Pros

Used by hundreds of Tour Pros on the PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tours

Chart Greens in a Greens Book (like Tour Caddies) to lower scores; this is legal!

Stop guessing the break!  Read greens way the Tour Pros do and lower your scores.


Fourteen years ago, when we introduced the BreakMaster Digital Green Reader, a few angry golfers came to our booth at the PGA Show to declare that “that thing is illegal” and that “it will never be accepted under the Rules of Golf.”  Fortunately, golf pros, caddies and golf instructors got it.  They understood that the BreakMaster was a great tool intended for charting greens before, not during, competitions.  Well, this week, the R & A (The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, Scotland, who jointly governs the Rules of Golf along with the USGA) bought a good number of BreakMasters from us.  The USGA (as well as the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tour) had been using the BreakMaster for years to set up fair hole positions for their tournaments.  So had the R & A (we were surprised to learn) which had been using the BreakMaster for some time, but had not, until now, purchased directly from us.  Golf is a game of rich traditions, and it doesn’t change capriciously.  We’re proud to learn that the R & A has recognized the BreakMaster as a useful tool for the game.


Tour Pros don't guess the breaks, they're charted out for them by their caddies before tournaments.  This is LEGAL under the Rules of Golf.  Look at this greens chart (above) that was used in a major tournament.  It shows exactly the Break Direction and Break Amount (in degrees) at any point on the green.  This is the kind of information the Tour Pros use when making their putts.  Think it might help you to have this kind of information before you putt or make an approach shot? 

Now 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.

Congratulations to BreakMaster customer Michelle Wie for that great win at the HSBC Women's World Championship.  Michelle's great putting (especially that 35 footer!) proves once again that no matter how far great players can drive the ball, it all comes down to what they do on the green. 

Great putts are made every day by pro and amateur 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...  These days, even amateur 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 amateur 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.  


The biggest problem golfers have in lowering their scores is on the green.  It's hard to know by eyesight alone how gravity (the break on the green) is going to affect the roll of the putt, and that's why so many amateur golfers miss putts and (unhappily) raise their scores.  The best way to know the break is to measure the green with the BreakMaster Digital Green Reader and then make charts in a Greens Book.  That's what makes the BreakMaster the perfect gift for ANY golfer.  It's a precision tool that will help any golfer to lower scores. BUY NOW!

"My 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."

It was fifteen 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!

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.
