Short on time? These nifty putting aids can help you hone your stroke at home
Every golfer would probably say that improving their putting is a top priority. The problem is, most players simply aren’t able to commit to the time required to make big gains on the green.
That’s why Fredrik Lindblom co-founded Short Game Gains, a practice-aid company devoted to making tools that help golfers improve faster. And with Short Game Gains’ putting laser and putting gate, you can easily hone in on the issues with your putting stroke that need fixing for more efficient putting practice from the comfort of home.
“A lot of players really struggle with aim and start line,” Lindblom says. “And those are two things you can really work on indoors at home.”
When affixed to your putter, the precision putting laser gives you instant feedback on where your clubface is aimed.
When you’re aimed improperly at address, that means you end up compensating in other ways throughout your stroke, opening up a whole host of errors through impact.
“If we can minimize that aim bias, we can minimize the manipulations you have to do during the stroke,” Lindblom says.
By lining up the laser with both your clubface and the target, you can ensure your stroke is on track all the way through.
By practicing with this setup at home, Lindblom says, you’re making sure that your aim and start line is neutral, which will ultimately result in a more consistent putting stroke and, ideally, better putting overall.
“We all get bored after a few minutes putting on that indoor putting mat,” Lindblom says. “This gives you a challenge and also makes sure that your fundamentals improve while you’re having fun.”
