No, we’re not looking for the best piece of putting equipment. We want to identify the golfer, actually the golfers, who are the best putters in the land. The title of “America’s Best Putter” will go to the winners of the Pro Division and the four Amateur Divisions of the 2012 USPT Championship.
What’s it going to take? The golfers who win in each division of the putting championship will have to make a lot of one-putts on the holes that are in the six- to 20-foot range. They’re also going to have to avoid the holes that are three-puttable, which include those that are over 40 feet and the tricky uphill, downhill, and sidehill putts.
The 18-hole championship putting course that we’ll construct on Morgan Run‘s two large practice putting greens will be a true putting test for all golfers. Both greens have large undulations and subtle breaks. Plus, every day during Championship Week, we will set new holes and tees, so the putting course will be completely different from one round to the next.
If you’re feeling a little intimidated, don’t worry; we’re here to help. We have a full section of the USPT website dedicated to providing putting tipsthat can help you prepare for the 2012 Championship. So read up then sign up at our website. Then hit the practice green to hone your putting stroke in time for the USPT Championship. Best of luck!
