Left to Right Putt

Annoying Golf Commentators

Do you ever have little things drive you crazy?
Here’s one of mine, Sunday at the Women’s US Open Morgan Pressel says: “This putt is uphill, but has a pretty good amount of break from right to left….”
Why do golf commentators insist on describing putts “from / to”???
Why can’t they just say, “this putt will break left”?
The ball can’t come from the right to the left, it was never right.  It just broke left.
If commentators are going to use this ill-formed description of a putt, then be consistent and say, “This putt will be from downhill to uphill”!!
