Short Game Gains Precision Putting Laser

Short Game Gains Precision Putting Laser

Think of yourself as a Sniper, and your putter is the  badass modified rifle that helps you lock on to your target. Our Precision Putting Laser goes on top of your weapon (the putter) and shows you EXACTLY how to perfect your aim, so you can feel more confident pulling that trigger. As we already know, 97% of players suck at aiming (see: Accurate Aim Kit) and if your aim is poor, you’ll have to make adjustments throughout the stroke to get the putter face aimed down the correct line in time for impact. This leads to inconsistencies and missed putts. The PPL comes with a tripod as well, which allows you to create a sort of “chalk line”- but this chalk line won’t ruin your hardwood floors. Click the Laser onto the tripod, align it with your target, and you have a clear visual of the line you’re trying to hit. *This laser is designed for indoor use, and is not visible in bright outdoor light*

Not quite sure if you’re reading the line properly on that pressure-packed putt on the practice green? Instead of guessing and hoping the ball rolls to the right spot, why not use the Short Game Gains Precision Putting Laser to provide an exact line to aim for?

As the name suggests, you’ll experience “short game gains” almost immediately, with this precision laser helping you become an absolute sniper on the putting surface — which is where you’ll see the quickest gains, by eliminating unnecessary putts that only add strokes to each round.

Hitting the sweet spot of the club each time is going to give you the flush shots you’ve been dreaming of. But you’re not going to get there by coming off-plane and witnessing the ball go off either the toe or heel.

That’s why we love the Swing Arc as a top golf alignment stick — because it provides instant feedback on the club path, and gives you an easy-to-follow arc towards impact. So now you can take your ball-striking to a whole new level!
