Putting Training Aids
Improve Your Impact
You line up the putt, draw back the putter, make the stroke, and… watch the ball roll on a different line. Does this sound all too familiar? While you may have read the putt wrong, chances are that you didn’t hit the ball squarely to send it on the line you intended. The Putt Trainer by Greg ‘The Golf Guy” Jones will help you learn how to square the putter every time. Simply line up your putter with the Putt Trainer and make your stroke. A square impact will result in a straight roll. Rolling off to the left or right indicates impact with the toe or heel of the putter. Can be used indoors or outside. All you need is a smooth surface, your putter, and the Putt Trainer, and you’ll be on you way to sinking more putts and lowering your scores.
Make More Putts
Good putting is key to lowering scores. If you really want to increase your putting efficiency, focus on making more putts from 12 -15 feet and in. A PGA tour player will make 69% of 6-foot putts while an amateur golfer will make only 50%. At 12 feet, the tour player will make 30% of the putts compared to 19% for an amateur. However, at 25 feet, the difference between the tour player and amateur is minimal– 5.7% for the pro vs. 4.3% for the amateur. Focusing on training to make more putts from 12-15 feet and in will pay the most dividends for the average golfer.
The Putt Ruler is designed to help you develop the necessary skills to putt the ball on line. The Putt Ruler is marked in one-foot increments that correspond to various putt lengths. Start by putting the ball from the one-foot mark to improve the accuracy of your 3-foot putts. As you increase your skill, move the ball further down the Putt Ruler until you can putt the ball the full 4-foot length, which corresponds to making a 12-15 foot putt. The Putt Ruler is lightweight aluminum and is easy to use indoors or outside. Learn to rule the greens with the Putt Ruler!
