Eyeline Golf Putting Alignment mirror
This aid will help you correct poor alignment on the greens and make more putts as a result. The putter gate slots allow you to set up a gate of tees for the toe and heel of the putter to make sure you’re making contact with the centre of the face. It’s portable and comes with a carry bag.
Brand Fusion Tour A.S. Alignment sticks
Getting your alignment right is crucial and that is why you’ll see so many Tour players working with alignment sticks on the range to ensure they have the fundamentals right. These sticks come in pairs and come with a drill sheet to show you how to use the alignment sticks correctly and effectively.
SKLZ Putting gate
This excellent aid will give you instant feedback on the path of your putting stroke. To hit the ball with the middle of the club and on a straight line, your putter head will need to pass through the gates without making contact.
