Even a small idea or factoid relating to your golf skills and game, matter cumulatively! Life is a very big ‘Journey’ and every leg, big or small, matters. Each contributes to our ‘Pleasure’!
Think about your ‘Ball Rolling Line’. There are only three conditional alternatives … 1) Flat, 2) Down-Slope and 3) Up-Slope. (see ‘Initial Ball Rolling Line or Start Line’)
When we roll the ball ‘Straight Up or Down The Line’, we refer to this circumstance as ‘Slope’. Our baseline concern is ‘Speed or Distance’.
What about ‘Break’ on the same plot of ‘Dance Floor’? Our ‘Slope’ has not really changed, only our perspective! Rather than rolling the ball ‘Straight Up or Down The Line’, we are now rolling our ball ‘Straight Across The Line’ in varying degrees.
The Putting Surface has not changed, just our perspective or relationship with it!
When we roll the ball dead up or down the hill, it is ‘Slope’!
When we roll the ball dead across the same hill or ‘Slope’ (out of level surface), it is ‘Break’!
Seemingly pedantic, but golf enjoys a lot of minutia!
