DISTANCE between aim point and distance point

The importance of the distance between the aim point (PA) and the distance point (PD) cannot be emphasized enough in putting success. The distance between these two points varies based on the type of putt direction to the fall line and green conditions, and golfers must consider green speed to calculate it. The aim point (PA) is the target where the putter should aim, while the distance point (PD) is the spot where the ball would come to rest if the surface were flat. Green speed and ball position relative to the fall line affect the force required to get the ball from aim point (PA) to distance point (PD). Understanding the difference between aim point (PA) and distance point (PD) is crucial for making accurate putts.
