Putting Arc MS III

Putting Arc MS III

Simple in its design and how it teaches the stroke (place the heel of the putter against the arc and just practice swinging back and forth). Extended practice with the Putting Arc MSIII should teach a proper “swinging gate” stroke – unfortunately, it can get repetitive. Note that this device is not designed to help those who use a “straight back/straight through” stroke.

SKLZ Accelerator Pro

SKLZ Accelerator Pro

Teaches the critical concept of accelerating the putter head through impact. Excellent putting mat provides a true roll. Unfortunately, severe incline near the hole may be teaching you to smack the ball too far.

Greens Professor

Greens Professor

Helps pinpoint whether the face of your putter is square, open or closed at impact. Using the device can get monotonous, and while the Greens Professor may actually help someone’s game, it doesn’t look or feel like a polished product, so it may not provide the “wow” factor you’re looking for if you’re giving this as a gift.

ProActive ProCircuit Putt Return System

ProActive ProCircuit Putt Return System

We loved the ball return system, since it appeals to our lazy instincts – why reach a few inches to get the ball back when you can buy something that deposits it right back in the middle of your stance? But the wrinkly putting mat left us questioning the value of the device as a training aid.

Hank Haney Ultimate Putting System

Hank Haney Ultimate Putting System

Don’t let the name fool you – the “Ultimate Putting System” is just a basic putting mat with an electric ball return. The ball return is a nice touch, but the inferior quality of the putting mat makes this an also-ran within the product category.

EyeLine Golf Putting Laser+

EyeLine Golf Putting Laser+

The EyeLine golf laser is a simple offering, a laser that easily clips on to any putter shaft. The laser projects two perpendicular straight lines onto the ground (intended for indoor use) – one that points to the target and is perpendicular to the putter face, and the other that is along the face of the putter and is square to the target line to show the position of the putter face throughout the stroke. This allows players to get instant feedback to easily see if the putter is aligned or is moving off target. Read more about the EyeLine Putting Laser+.

Medicus Golf Dual-Handle Putter Trainer

Medicus Golf Dual-Handle Putter Trainer

The Medicus Dual-Handle Putter Trainer looks and works unlike any of the other putting training aids on the market. The Medius trainer temporarily attaches to your putter by “sitting” on the butt end, with two handles that extended to either side of your putter handle, and then attach at the base of your grip. The goal is to develop the muscle memory to train the movement of the shoulders to keep your ball rolling in a straight line, every time. Read more about the Medicus Dual-Handle Putter Trainer.

TOMI Personal Putting System

TOMI Personal Putting System

TOMI, short for The Optimum Motion Instructor, is a training system designed to support instruction on the practice green. The system consists of a transmitter that attaches to the shaft and a base unit which records the information and saves it to your PC. The system records the motion and angle of the putter in space, from the backstroke to follow-through. The system then in near real-time breaks the data into sets of data for each of the eight key stroke measurements and then displays these results in charts and graphs. For data junkies out there looking to work on their putting, this could be just the ticket. Read more about the TOMI Personal Putting System.

Z Factor Perfect Putting Machine

Z Factor Perfect Putting Machine

The Z Factor Perfect Putting Machine rests on the green (or your carpet, of course), and is unlike other products in that you attach your putter to the system, and then “feel” the correct putting stroke and build the muscle memory groove it. The Z Factor is adjustable for six different swing planes, including square to square and five different arcs. Or bet is that your stroke matches one of the six. Or at the least, it should. Left handed? No worries, it’s fully reversible. Read more about the Z Factor Perfect Putting Machine.
