The article presents advice on how a golfer may more accurately read his putts before striking them. The method suggested it to walk to a spot behind the hole that is on a direct line of the path created by the ball and the hole and envisioning the last three feet of the putt. The golfer should then picture the ball rolling backwards to its location and connect the two lines to read the green.
