BEST PUTT: JON RAHM AT THE FARMERS INSURANCE OPEN
On Torrey Pines’ South Course, the Spanish phenom drained a 60-foot eagle putt that was good the whole way to pull away for a three-stroke win at the Farmers, his first Tour victory.
HOW YOU CAN HIT IT
Odds are that a long putt is going to break in multiple directions. The trick is to read the putt in segments. Compare what the ball is going to do at the beginning of the roll to how it will react near the hole as it slows. Emphasize each segment equally, not just the end. Remember, you’ve got no chance at all if you’re unable to start the ball on your intended line. — Top 100 Teacher Todd Sones
A putt he will remember forever.
