Yips! Ugh I can’t stand to hear that word or even worse experience them. Here you are stepping up to that ‘easy’ two foot putt. This is for the win with your buddies on Saturday’s skins game. Everything is riding on this putt. You try to calm your mind, address the ball, take a deep breath, and what happens next is like a story line out of ‘The Twilight Zone’.
You didn’t just miss the putt, you missed the entire hole by a mile and here it comes…”OMG, I have the Yips!” Your mind is racing as you file through every thought wondering how on earth you just missed the shortest putt on earth. You wonder if you misread the putt, but deep inside you think, “No way! I was short and I knew how the putt was moving!”
Well, there is a very good chance that where you thought you were aimed and where you were actually aimed were two entirely different places. Did I catch your attention?
Fear no more, there is an amazing product that will assist you in aiming right where you want to! Laser Putt approached us here at Bunkers Paradise with a product like no other. We took a look and saw it was something that must be researched and reviewed. Hey, I may have been a tour player in my life, but I too have difficulty at times aiming where I want to aim. In comes Laser Putt.
Say “Goodbye!” to the yips ;and “Hello!” to Laser-it-in-the-Hole confidence!
The Laser Putt System
The Laser Putt provides the player with a very unique 3 Laser System to assist in alignment and putting confidence with–get this–only two lasers!
The Green Laser Alignment System shows you the precise line, shape and balance of your putting stroke. This allow you to practice with more pinpoint accuracy since you are receiving immediate feedback.
The Red Laser Calibration System helps the player gather more ‘personal stroke’ date on the relationship between the distance of the putt and the player’s backstroke. This part of the 3 Laser System will help you to hone in your skills on feel for distance, pace and speed.
Finally, the Laser Visualization System give the player very powerful images of what a perfect putting stroke looks like based upon the feedback you immediately receive and the player is able to store and recall when facing a similar putt down the road. This part I really like since the mental part of the game is of utmost importance. To get a true feel and image that you are ‘on line’ and putting with precise distance is priceless.
The Laser Putt is a small device that easily attaches to virtually every putter on the market. A simple clamp and thumbscrew attaches the Laser Putt to the shaft of your putter. Really very easy to attach.
Wow! When you open the package it really is amazing how compact the Laser Putt fitting right in the palm of your hand. It has a great attachment feature that is allow you to pop it on and off.
What I like is that it comes with the Alignment Calibration Guide that you place on the ground and the ball sets on a specific point on the 3 foot long guide or you can have your ball right next to it. There are pictures and explanations written right on it and the guide is spot on for getting a sense of ball position and stoke.
The lasers are easy to turn on and off from the device attached to your putter. When they are set and your are ready to putt, the Green Laser line gives you a great insight to your set up and aim as well as immediate feedback during the stroke (it extends along the line of your putt. The Red Laser dot allows you to ‘see’ your target and visualize exactly where the ball will go.
Both the Green Laser Line and Red Laser dot are very prominent and I was able to utilize the Laser Putt at home, my office and on the practice putting green during a cloudy day and more towards dusk. The Lasers are bright, but as with any light (laser, flashlight…etc.) it is much tougher if not impossible to see during the bright daylight outside.
All in all the look and feel is dead on with detail and allowing you to really get to ‘see’ what you are doing throughout the putting process. Take note too, that you can quickly snap it on and off and keep it in your golf bag, briefcase or purse. Easy Peasy.
