Tool of the pros will aid your putting tech­nique

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drivetime Extra -

It was back to the putting green this week as Dun­can ex­plained how to use a tool that is be­com­ing pop­u­lar with the pros.

The Dave Pelz putting tu­tor is sim­ply a piece of me­tal with two ball bear­ings cre­at­ing a gap for the ball.

The idea is to get the ball through the gap with­out mov­ing ei­ther of the ball bear­ings.

If you don’t hit a pure putt, then you’ll know as the ball bear­ings will have come loose. It has also helped Dun­can keep his put­ter straight through the shot.

Where it also comes in handy is for putting on a cer­tain line. Set the tu­tor up along the line you want to take, even if it is well out­side the hole, and the aid will help you hold that line as you putt rather than push­ing or pulling the ball in the di­rec­tion of the hole.

This is a method used by none other than Phil Mick­le­son, and he’s en­joyed a suc­cess or two in the past.

Mind the gap But if you hit the putt cor­rectly, it will go through the gap and drop in the hole
