PuttOut - We all watch the Golf Pro’s sinking amazing putts, and, truth be told, the reason that they are so good is that they practice. For us mere mortals in our busy lives, we just do not have the time to spend days on the putting green. But with the PuttOut, you can practice almost anywhere.
As Gary Player once said, “The more I practice, the luckier I get.” Repetition leads to success, and the PuttOut gives you the chance to do just that. The design is unique in that the system uses a parabolic ramp which automatically returns the ball for the next putt, no bending down to retrieve the ball. Each successful putt is returned the same distance that it would have gone past the hole if it had missed, a great way to improve pace. Push the central plug back and an absolutely spot on putt will cause the ball to stick in the hole.
Made from chunky rubber and translucent plastic, the PuttOut is durable and hardwearing and, designed to be folded and fit into a golf bag.
If you want to improve your putting, you need the PuttOut.
