Chart Greens with the BreakMaster (like Tour Caddies) to lower scores; this is legal!

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

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 putt!


Congratulations to James Hahn for a spectacular playoff win at the Northern Trust Open, proving once again that a great read and a great putt go hand in hand.  Actually, it was a bunch of great putts, and a bunch of amazing reads (but that 23-foot breaking putt at the end was especially exciting!).  No matter how far you can drive the ball, it all comes down to what you do on the green. 

Great putts are made every day by 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...  Many 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.  


"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."

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.

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.
