New technology to make putting easier

Whilst there are numerous affordable and effective swing analysis systems already available to buy for the club golfer to measure their performance from the tee, there has been nothing of note to either measure or give personalised instruction on the most important part of the game – putting – until now.

HOLE MORE PUTTS was created and developed in Ireland in collaboration with experienced PGA Professionals and respected international coaches David and Ian Kearney, HOLE MORE PUTTS is a high tech, portable solution to one of the most difficult parts in the game of golf – getting the ball in the hole.

Featuring an iPad type tablet and patented infrared technology, HOLE MORE PUTTS measures the five key elements of the putting stroke – face angle, impact point, path, angle of attack and speed – providing instant analysis of the stroke on a hi visibility screen in the top right hand corner of the tablet.

Using the putting tablet in tandem with a Mobile App and website, the device provides personalised instruction, including a series of tailored, easy to understand practice drills that are both effective and measurable.

Proprietary software analyses the putting stroke and calculates a player’s ‘Putting Index’ – their putting performance score.  The interactive website provides the golfer with a visualisation of each putt, a detailed analysis of the stroke, and personalised improvement instruction, based on the feedback, in an easy-to-follow video format.

Dave Kearney, who is the head PGA Professional at Grange Golf Club in Dublin, and High Performance Director for the Irish Ladies Union, believes that all golfers will see instant improvements from regular use. “Without feedback, players don’t know if they’re practicing a good habit or just repeating a bad one. Without solutions and drills, they won’t know what to practice to improve.

“HOLE MORE PUTTS instantly provides golfers with this information and instruction based on what they see on screen.  The golfer can now see what to focus on to get the greatest improvements, quickly. Over 90 per cent of golfers involved in our initial research showed significant improvement after using Hole More Putts, with an average improvement of 9 per cent.”

Requiring no set up, and very little space, HOLE MORE PUTTS can be used indoors and outdoors, at home or in the office, to improve putting performance. Ongoing use will help golfers of all standards to build a clear picture of their putting strengths and weaknesses, to develop a stroke that is effective time after time.

The device can also improve green reading and distance control, and will enable every golfer to have a putting stroke that is consistent.
