Ask a professional golfer what the most important aspect of becoming a good putter is and 99% of them will tell you it is speed. The pace in which you hit your putts is far more important than alignment. And that is especially true for amateurs. Alignment is obviously important as well, but the distance your first putt finishes from the hole is bound to lead to much better scores. It’s a lot easier to tap in a two-footer after a great lag putt than having to putt from six feet to save par because you keep blowing it by the hole. That is one of the reasons I love the PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer so much. Not only will get you to focus on a smaller target, but it forces you to keep your speed in check.
So how does the PuttOut work? It’s quite simple, really. It is designed to simulate the exact conditions of putting into a real hole on the green using its ground-breaking parabolic curved design. Because of that design, it rejects bad putts, and each “successful” putt is returned the same distance it would have gone past the hole if it had missed. This is great feedback for getting your pace just right. And, if your putt is “perfect” it will settle in the very small micro target hole just above the cup cutout (see how it works below). All in all, this will allow you to build repetition to improve your pace putting and your performance under pressure. Buy: $29.99
