What is a Green Book?

The Pro Green Book introduced it’s first Green Book to the world of professional golf at the Scottish Open in July 2015. Ricky Fowler used the book to win the tournament and 6 of the top 10 players were using the Green Book.

At our second European Tour event we provided books for Danny Willet and Mathew Fitzpatrick who finished 1st and 2nd respectively at the Omega European Masters. We have since provided books for the winners of 5 further events on the European Tour including Thomas Peiters (two wins), Thor Bjorn Ollesen, David Horsey and of course Mathew Fitzpatrick at the British Masters.

How is the Green Book made?

The book is made using laser and GPS survey data which enables us to model the green surface to 1/2 millimetre accuracy. We then use our specialist Clere software which turns the GPS survey data and 3D model into drawings designed to help golfers understand the green and surrounding area.

About The Green Book

The Green Book has been developed after 2 years of software development by our in house developers who created our award winning ClereGreenCreator software.

Data is collected using the latest GPS and 3DLaser Scanning equipment which enables us to measure putting surfaces to within a 1/2mm accuracy.

The result is simply information about slopes on the greens to help players predict the direction of roll for their putts. The result is a book in more detail and accuracy than has ever been seen before on the European Tour.

Is the Green Book successful?

The results speak for themselves. In 2015 an average of 23% of golfers on the European Tour used the Green Book since it’s launch at the Scottish Open. Our Green Book has been used by 8 out of the 10 event winners.

The book was available for the Ladies British Open at Turnberry and The Evian Championship where players using the book finished 1st and 2nd. We were proud to be invited to produce books for both teams competing at the Solheim Cup.
