As a Golf Professional, I am always looking for new and innovative ways to help my students improve. After each lesson, I always reflect to see if there was an easier or more clear way I could have connected with the student. Through those reflections I started to develop a catalog of ideas that could help make this game less complicated, less technical, and less frustrating for golfers of all skill levels. Throughout my years of teaching I've shied away from getting too technical with students and focused more on the function of the body and how that influences the club. With that concept in mind, like most golf enthusiasts nowadays, I turned to the internet to find something that could help.
From my examination of the training aid market, I found that it was flooded with various swing aids and putting aids that focused on path, face, connection, rhythm, grip, etc. The one thing I couldn't find was a putting aid that focused on the function of the lower body or in this case, the lack there of. This is where the concept for ProPutt started. If you look at some of the best putters on tour, you will see that throughout the putting stroke their lower bodies have very little movement. Especially on short putts. This sent me on a search to find a way to have players be able to feel what it is like to not just stabilize their lower body, but also help them with setup and alignment. After months of research and numerous prototypes, ProPutt was born!
