Solheim putting tip: How to read greens
Charlie Rymer gives some putting advice for dealing with the undulating greens at the Colorado Country Club. Watch 'Morning Drive' weekdays at 7AM ET.And the greens at Colorado Golf club are absolutely spectacular designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore. They are greens that have a ton of movement in 'em. A lot of it you see. A lot of it you don't see. And we look at some of these wide shots. This isn't really a mountain golf course . The mountains are out west of town. This is-- This is a little south and east of Denver. This is more of a-- sort of a high prairie at about 6,000 feet. And the most common mistake, Holly, that amateurs make when they're coming to the golf course like this or really any other golf course is-- has to do with riding golf carts. You and I are out playing golf and we're riding in a golf cart. We hit. We both hit up on the green. We sit in a cart. Of course, I'm gonna talk. You're gonna sit there and listen, right.

When you ride in a cart, you don't really get a sense of that. So, when you're out and you're playing golf , you're riding a cart like I know many of the amateurs do, really pay attention to the surroundings of the golf course , the property, and look in particular for where water is. Building a golf course is so much about moving the water away from the playing surfaces. So, in your mind, you think, okay, this property will
