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.
THE BREAKMASTER IS AT THE R & A, ST. ANDREWS!
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.
CHART GREENS LIKE THE TOUR PROS DO!
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?
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

SINKING A BREAKING PUTT MAKES YOUR WHOLE DAY!
Congratulations to Jordan Spieth for that great win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Jordan's great putting 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 PERFECT GIFT FOR ANY GOLFER!
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!
WHY CHART GREENS? "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."

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
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.
