Is it just me, or does almost everyone put an extended alignment line on their ball with a sharpie?
If so, why doesn't Titleist just paint that line on the ball for us with a very very thin line or two lines we can color in with the sharpie color of our choice. I used purple or metallic gold.
I just love to watch that line roll perfectly in the cup when I hit a great put. Gives me such a lift!
Is there anyone who would be opposed to this? Or anyone who doesn't use an extended alignment line on their ball?
thanks for the #1 ball in the world Titleist!
Personally I like just the Titleist subtle gray printed line on the ball. I don't extend the line with a Sharpie because sometimes I may change my alignment when I stand over the putt. Since the Titleist line is subtle, it's easy for me to ignore it. BUT if choose to use it, the line is still visible enough to be helpful.
I like to use the Magnum Sharpie to draw a ridiculously large arrow (about a half inch wide) on the ball. Its mainly to just black out the "practice" marking or whatever company logo or initials are printed on the ball. The large black marking also helps me spot how well the ball is rolling off the face, or if it is skidding too much during practice drills.
Yes and Yes...
I tee and putt my Titleist with the name perfectly straight down the target line.
I make a cigar sometimes out of the line for alignment and fun!
I'd love a photo of that!
I must be the odd man out. I don't use any of the alignment aids on my Titleist when putting. I have found over the years that for me focusing on the AIM line or Titleist script is a distraction. I just read my putt and pick an aiming point on the green, place my ball, set-up based on my read and pull the trigger.
once i started drawing a line on my ball it helped my putting game out tremendously
I just use the ProV line AIM marker. It works just fine.
I am with you, Barry. I think most would miss the putt anyway. Dick B.
I also use the Titleist script for my alignment aid when putting. I also, use the Titleist script to line up my tee shots as well. I don't see why this concept has been isolated to just putting when it can help on tee balls as well. I find that the number provides a small focal target which helps out with more consistent pure contact as well.
Give it try!
I like the line....I use a red sharpie always (red for red numbers, eh) and specifically use the line in putting. Sometimes, I'll set the ball on the green so that only the front part of the alignment line (or about 1/4th) is visible, but at times I set the ball so that the entire line is visible. Tee balls, I don't use the alignment line at all. I guess it's really a preference and confidence thing, but I think it really is helpful in putting.
