Great Tool to Refine Putting Stroke
June 20, 2014
I really like this simple but effective putting tool. It forces you to make a smooth pendulum stroke and a complete follow through. In short, it forces you to have good mechanics. So many of us have bad putting mechanics and this tool will infinitely instill good mechanics. I'm going to have an oversize putting grip installed on mine to match my putter grip. This tool has become a must use in my pre game warm up routine. I highly recommend this to everyone. Work with it for just a short time and you will see positive results. After using this for more than a month now, (I play twice a week) my putts have went from average of 36 to 39 per round to consistently averaging 30 to 31 putts per round. And to think that when I ordered this I wasn't really expecting much but willing to give it a try. Glad I gave it a try and then some! This was available in Scratch's Clearance Cave and I paid half price for it too boot!!!
Cons:The only thing I can come up with here is that it doesn't seem effective for practicing long putts. The ball comes out of the circle if I take too large of a back swing. However this is a minor detail in the overall rating because good mechanics is what this tool is all about. I find that out on the golf course I'm consistently much improved on long lag putts. Now I rarely 3 putt and I'm one putting more often. Mechanics is as mechanics does baby!
