Putting Reviews are resumes of books, videos, ebooks, putting aids, and other items that can help you with your putting. I have read, or tested, each item and each resume is a short summary of my findings.
Occasionally in my research I will come across something to include in this list of reviews. However, there will be other items that are not included simply because the cost to benefit ratio to me personally is not great enough.
This does not mean that they are no good, but rather that I have decided not to pay out to read or test them.
For each resume there is a link to the relevant web site, or supplier, so that you can source the particular item as well as read more about it. It is not my intention to review any putters as this information is more readily available elsewhere on other web sites.
The author Sean Weir has arranged the information systematically so you can equip yourself with a putter that matches you and your putting style. His explanations and illustrations are clear, and to the point.
Gone are the days when it was thought that any off-the-rack putter will do. While there are very few bad putters for sale, any putter that doesn't fit you is in reality a bad putter.
Once you have read Putter Perfection you will have a useful reference to take with you when you decide to have a putter properly custom-fitted to your requirements.
All in all this is a good read and a good buy – one that will help you improve your putting game and your scores.
The Cup Reducer is a circular device with an opening to show the entry gate for a breaking putt. Inserted in the cup it can then be rotated to where the ball will most likely enter the hole.
Very few putts are straight uphill or straight downhill. Most putts have some degree of break and this means that they will enter the hole via the side door. In other words the centre of the hole moves depending on the break.
The Cup Reducer gives you instant feedback on whether you have read the amount of break correctly. Get it wrong and the ball will strike the raised portion of putting aid.
The two Cup Reducers that I use during practice both do the same job. Each has a restricted entrance through which the ball can pass. Success is only achieved if you match the line to the speed.
The SKLZ Putt Pocket and the Eyeline Bullseye are simple, yet effective, in helping you to judge where the true centre of the hole is on a breaking putt.
