Putting Up A Tier

Bradley Hughes explains the 2 choices for putting up a tier.


BRADLEY HUGHES: Undulating greens-- very hard to always get the ball on the right level. So we're going to be faced with a lot of puts where we have to putt up a tier.

I think there's a couple of ways that you can really judge these well. Obviously, speed is really important when putting up a hill.

So our first option would be to have a longer stroke with a really nice rhythm or tempo. So we need to feel a long, smooth stroke.

The other option-- if we don't like to make this long, smooth stroke-- we can do our normal stroke, but we have to do it at a quicker tempo. And both of those options work really well for putting the ball up a tier and getting it close to the hole.
