My putting is so bad i thought I would purchase my first putting aid. I took it to the course today for the first time and was amazed how many putts I made with it. Felt like cheating once it was aligned properly and I made putt after putt from 8-10 feet.
The reason I bought it was because I thought my shoulders and eyes was totally misaligned for as many putts as I miss from short range. I quickly eliminated those two factors standing over it for the first time as both seemed to be properly aligned.
I practiced by NOT watching the ball roll after impact.
Not sure if it will improve my overall putting but I think, if I use it enough, it will. I also tried putting without the aid after using it for a bit and I seemed to be able to align my putter with the line on the ball a lot better. Most misses were very close to going in.
We just got rid of snow here in Michigan and the greens are still brown and fairly rough.
Under $20 at Amazon. Quite heavy weight and seems like it will last a long time and comes with pouch. I'm thinking the mirror alignment strips can also help with squaring shoulders for irons.
I am having a putter fitting next week and hopefully I can knock some strokes off my score this year.
Can anyone share your experiences if you have used one?

nrjyzr: most amazing part of the whole "ace experience"... I managed to actually hit my tee shot reasonably well on the next hole, which was #17. On #18, though, I fatted a 3 wood. LOL

nrjyzr: As for the format, I don't mind it. The biggest problem with the forum is the number of trolls that seem to be sanctioned. Not a fan.
