Hey, Team Titleist.
Last week Mike D. gave me a great training aid for putting that I’m planning on using throughout the off-season. It’s small sheet of foam with an adhesive backing that you tape to the face of your putter. The foam has an opening cut out of the middle to reveal a small oval section of the putter’s sweet spot. If you make contact with the ball slightly towards the heel or toe, or slightly low or high on the face of the putter, you’ll hit the foam and produce a dead and wayward roll. The foam gives you instant feedback in the form of squishy feel and dampened sound, too.
I had a suspicion that I had been missing a lot of putts out towards the toe of my putter and this little aid confirmed it. I did pretty well on short putts, but once I moved out past 15 feet or so, the toe hits started creeping in. Something very easy to improve upon.
Do you have any favorite aids that might help us out on the greens? Thanks for sharing!
