The Golf Fix: Adjust to the elements
Michael Breed, host of 'The Golf Fix', shows how you can adjust on the golf course when the weather changes. Watch The 'Golf Fix' Mondays at 7PM ET.-Thanks for joining us on Golf Channel Academy. I'm Michael Breed, host of The Golf Fix. We saw the Masters, we heard people talking about how they lost control of their ability to read the greens, feel the greens, the distance of the putts and all that other stuff. Because what happened was when that rain came down, things started to change a little bit. And under that pressure, it sometimes is hard to hang on to that feel. Well, what I want you to do, when you get out on the golf course , if you start to lose feel, is I want you to experiment with your distance that you're aiming the ball to travel.
The Golf Fix: How to putt at Augusta National
Michael Breed, host of 'The Golf Fix', is in Augusta to show you how to putt on fast greens, just like the ones at Augusta National. Watch 'The Golf Fix' Mondays at 7PM ET.Thanks for joining us on Golf Channel Academy. I'm Michael Breed, host of the Golf Fix and we're in Augusta. And when you're in Augusta, you think Masters. And when you think Masters, you think putting. So many of us are struggling with these little cut putt. These are the putts that have about 3 or 4 feet-- 3 or 4 inches of break and they're slicing to the toe of your club whether you're right or left handed. The balls going to the toe side of the club. Now, what I'm gonna do to assist you with making more and assist me with making more is I'm gonna use this tennis ball here. And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna put the tennis ball right in front of the hole, so we're blocking the hole right there. The reason why you are missing these putts is when you're coming into it, you're pushing this putter down the hill. And what I want you to do is I want you to have some obstacle in there that's gonna force you to hit this up the hill. So, by having a tennis ball right there, what it's gonna do is, it's gonna force you to get this thing up the high set-- up at themore break, felt that go in. That went in without hitting that tennis ball and now I get to go home. So, you want to improve your putting? Just use a tennis ball . Put it and block that hole. Put it in the middle of the way of the path, and that will force you to understand how to get that ball to go round that tennis ball and into the whole. That's awesome, by the way, gonna help you with your green rating , and you're gonna shoot lower scores. And you know what else you can do to shoot lower scores? Every Monday night, 7

Harmon's putting tips for Ginella and Hack
Instructor Claude Harmon III gives Damon Hack and Matt Ginella putting tips. Watch 'Morning Drive' weekdays at 7AM ET.smart. I wonder what [unk] says. -Oh, there miss. Been talking to Steve Stricker this week. I asked Steve, you know, when you're working with guys on tour about their putting, what do you- what are you looking for? And he said a lot of it was in setup. He thought their setups get off line. So, if you just go ahead and get those forearms nice and parallel, go in. -Is he teaching a lot of guys now? Is he teaching a lot of guys now? -Absolutely. I think Steve Stricker can become a putting guru, the way that- the passion that he has for putting and, you know, as an instructor, you have to actually, you know, care about your students and you could really see last week, I think he was doing some work with Jerry , Kelly in the [unk]. I could really see Steve Stricker when he decides to hang it up to become a putting instructor.
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. You're gonna listen. And before you know it, we're at the green. We get out of the cart and we walk up on the green. We've had no chance to look at the surroundings of the golf course . -And lay on the land. -We look at the lay of the land. Professionals and people that walk when they play the game have a huge advantage because as they are working their way up to the green, so many times they already know what that putt's gonna do. They know that this slope gently works down this way. The green is cut into that slope and overall there's gonna be some slope moving the ball from right to left. 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
