Having done the Aimpoint thing, I would say that if you are new to golf and have absolutely no idea about break and how to judge it, then it might be good to get a basic understanding of what to look for, and how to gauge break.

 

If on the other hand you are not a newbie, then you should have a pretty good idea of slopes already.

 

Originally Aimpoint was all about charts and actual measurements and first gauging the green speed,(in order to do the calculations) but then it quickly moved on and developed to where you now see Adam Scott straddling the line of his putts and gauging the break by using his feet to judge the break and working out the target line with fingers.

 

You will still miss putts though no matter what method you use.

 

For me I found Aimpoint too time consuming (I started with the chart method when having practice rounds) and quickly gave it away. If you just play your home course all the time though, then you should have a good idea of how much it will break on certain areas of the green, in which case, it just comes down to speed then.

 

Just my thoughts, but hope it helps ...... :)
