Accuputt is a portable laser device designed to teach the user’s muscles to make the proper putting stroke. What makes it unique is the putter that comes as part of the system has a slot or aperture through which a laser beam passes.
To practice turn on the laser, adjust the width of the putter’s aperture, place the putter so it straddles the beam and make a stroke.
After turning on Accuputt a green LED shows at the end of the practice pad floor unit showing the system is ready. The putter straddles the invisible laser beam and then just make a stroke. If the putter goes back to the inside or outside, anything buy straight back, the laser beam is broken, the LED changes to red and a buzzer sounds. A perfect straight back and straight through stroke doesn’t break the beam and by adjusting the width of the aperture in the putter a more precise motion can be practiced.
The aperture at its widest setting does allow for a putting arc of 7 degrees on a take-away and follow through of about 12 inches. The arc tolerance lowers to a straight line as the aperture is reduced.
The complete Accuputt system includes the floor unit and a training putter with adjustable aperture for $199 and may be purchased at www.accuputt.com.
