“PutterLight” is for ambitious golfers who want to improve accuracy of distance and direction on the greens, and around the greens.
This is a highly accurate putting and chipping stroke motion analyzer providing immediate continuous feedback. A laser pointer slipped on to your putter shaft beams a dot of red light onto a wall. A target is placed on the wall.
The laser dot moves when the club moves. The laser is aimed at the target on the wall while the golfer is in address position. A stroke or swing is made. The laser dot descends on the backswing and rises on the forward stroke, passing near or over the target with a certain degree of error. This error is the directional error resulting from opening or closing the club face during the stroke. You can see every little wobble throughout your stroke. For distance training, the laser dot up-down movement is compared to a scale or other marks on the wall. To see it in action watch this video.
Because the backswing length is a major factor in ball velocity and putting distance, it is worthwhile to exactly control the length of the backswing. The stroke length is difficult to see with the naked eye. PutterLight provides an immediate and accurate way of measuring various backswing lengths so you can reproduce them by feeling and choice.
You can use the PutterLight by turning your head and directly watching the laser dot on the wall, or you can stand close to the wall to eliminate head turning. You can also watch the laser dot through a common cosmetics mirror placed on the floor near the club head.
PutterLight weighs only 37 grams and its placed near the hands so you don't notice the weight.
It works on short swings: putting, chips and short pitches. Faster swings or full swings make the laser dot move too fast to see.
Beside being accurate, it's about three times faster than real putting. You don't have to fetch or place golf balls or watch where they go. It also allows harder swings than are normal for indoor practice (without a net).
The PutterLight comes with instructions, a hex key for fitting to the golf shaft, and a wall target.
