Take the Path to More Solid Putts

Take the Path to More Solid Putts

The Masters was a few weeks ago and, as they do every year, those greens did NOT disappoint. A windswept week at Augusta National paved the way to some incredible moments, as well as some very disastrous moments.

If you didn’t see what happened to Ernie Els on his very first hole of the tournament, click here to see for yourself, but fair warning, it’s tough to watch.


That’s right – a 6-putt quintuple-bogey 9 at the par-4.

Let’s face it; we’ve all been in the Big Easy’s shoes before. That was just another, albeit, cruel example of how difficult our sport really is.

Here’s the biggest kicker – if Els would have made a double bogey-6 instead of his 9 at No. 1, he would have shot 5-over 77.  In his second round, Els fired a 1-over 73. 

This year’s cut was 6 over. So, even with a double on that hole, Ernie still would have it on the number and played the weekend.

Would of; could of; should of … we know. However, this is a very good (yet extreme) example of how putting can make or break one’s round and one’s confidence.

Improve Your Putting Practice

With that in mind, The Perfect Putter is excited to showcase our most recent releases: The Path Trainer, and the Fundamentals. The Path Trainer is expertly designed to identify whether your putter face is square at impact, or not. Fundamentals acts as an essential aid that hones in on every aspect of what makes a great putter:

Alignment | Stance Width | Ball Position | Eyeline

Putting your stroke to the ultimate test, the Path Trainer provides instant feedback on your stroke at impact. Here’s how to use it most effectively:

  1. Find the precise line with your perfect putter
  2. Place the Path Trainer directly in front of the device, followed by removing the Perfect Putter
  3. Set up tees in the same width as your putter head
  4. Place a ball, and let it roll

If you do have a loop in your stroke, causing you to cut across or push the ball, your putter will hit the tees. More time with the Path Trainer will ingrain a rock-solid position at impact, meaning you’ll have the stroke to hole those important putts when they matter most.

Fundamentals was designed with one thing in mind: “Improve consistency.” In addition to checking stance width, eyeline, alignment, and ball position, the two rulers can also be used to test your consistency getting the ball started on line.

In addition, Fundamentals can be used with the Path Trainer to maximize its potential.

Now we can’t guarantee you’ll never suffer another quintuple bogey in your round like the Big Easy, but the likelihood of avoiding those enormous numbers drops dramatically when you have the right tools in place.

As always, roll ‘em well and we’ll see you around the putting greens.
