## Putter Practise

The result of a put, where the ball goes, is a function of putter head speed and angle. **Putter Practise** measures both. Putter Practise goes directly to measure these characteristics of the putter head without using a ball; this gives you precise measurements (1% accuracy measured with pendulum) of both variables of a putting stroke that affects wherre the ball goes. The fact that you practise without a ball, means you can easily and comfortably do it indoors in a room, and do many more putts per minute than you would do with a ball on a putting green. You can train in the winter time, you can train when it rains, or when you do not have the time to go to the golf course.

Would you consider to improve your putting skills the proven way (train, train, train) in the comfort of your home? Putter Practise is a device that can make that possible, letting you train your mind and motor skills towards a stable and precise technique. As said, the proven way is to train and train, grinding skills. With **Putter Practise** you can train in the comfort inside of your home without messy balls rolling on the floor. To be a good golfer requires that you put well. Typically 30-50% of all strokes are puts. The averege par is 4, and a two put on the green is what is expected to get a par, meaning in this case 50% of the strokes are puts.

Therefore it is easy to see that putting is the most important stroke for a standard golfer. A good way to lower your handicap making golf more enjoyable is to train your putting to be precise and stable. Precise means your putting stroke length should be withing 110% to 90% of the distance from the hole and angle from hole to ball after puting should be 3 degrees or better (path maximum 0,5 meters away at right angles at hole from a 10 meter put, it basically means you will sink a 1 meter put). Stable means maximum 10% of the putts diverge from this.

You need to practise, practise, practise. The more you practise, the better your muscle memory and feel for putter speed and direction. When you are on the green and you see the hole is 10 meters away from the ball, imagine if you have trained this distance and coupled it to a specific memory for the speed of the putte. Naturally, this memory will help you put with confidence and good results.

15 minutes of putting a day does you good; with one standard low cost AA alkaline battery costing 25 eurocents you can train for one year or more, if you train 15 minutes a day. Thus it is cheap to operate.

We dare to say that it is better to train on the **Putter Practise** than to train on a real putting green. On a green ball resistance varies with different areas of moisture on the path of the ball. This gives you many measuring errorsnst. Putter Practise measures the speed of the putter directly, giving you less errors, thus you can be more confident in grinding in the right feel for a specific distance. You may ask, as different putting greens give different results, do I train for a specific green speed on the Putter Practise? Yes and no, yes that the Putter Practise can give you the length in meters for a specific stroke, and this is based on a mathematical forumla accurately modeling a real green for a certain stimpmeter scale (stimpmeter is a standard way of measureing putting green speed). The two forumula parameters can be changed by the user to simulate a different stimpmeter putting green speed. However, Putter Practise allows you to measere the putter head speed in meters per second, thus you can train for certain speeds regardless of the speed of the putting green. Further, you can adapt from your speeds that you have trained for, with the actual speed of the green; just do a test stroke with putter head speed for a standard trained in length, e.g. 5 meters, if it goes further then remember to stroke a lighter and vice verse. If you train conventionally on a real putting green, then you encounter the same; you train for a certain green then you have to adapt to the greens you actually put.

The standard technique to train on, is to train for certain standardized lengths, e.g. 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 13, 15, 20, 25 meters. You associate those lengths in memory for a certain speed of the putter head. Then when you put for real you recall that memory, and adapt to the real length; if the hole is 12 meters away then you know you should put harder than the standardized trained in length of 10 meters but softer than 13 meters. Putter Practise has certain standardized lengths you can train and grind in.

Putter Practise allows you to train length skill, direction angle skill, or both at the same time. You can train for lengths longer than 30 meters (the unit will register it), but we do not reccomend it, since you have to be careful not to hurt any furniture, people or the unit (we reccomend putting a small book in front of the unit to avoid damage to the device).

Did you know that you play a game of mini golf with many participants on the unit? For the price of around a typical green fee, you can enjoy training and becoming better and better at putting for many years. Isn't golf is fun when you play well and win occationally?

Remember, even if you do not have membership in a golf club, this product could be for you, to test to see if you have talant for the sport, and if you find it fun (you can play mini golf on the product); you only need to buy a putter and this product to start with.
