I am in the business of teaching golf and helping golfers play their best, so it is safe to say that I have seen (and tried) most teaching and training aids on the market. Some are good, some are bad, and most are something in between. I have however been training myself and my college team on the Edge Putting Mirror from Eyeline Golf, and I can’t say enough great things about it. Here are three reasons YOU need to get this mirror:
- Indoor or outdoor, you can set “gates”. By using the holes in the mirror, you can use tees or the included rubber rods to make sure that your putter is moving on the correct path throughout the stroke and the ball gets started on the proper line.
- You can make sure that your alignment is perfect EVERY time. – Use the lines on the mirror to make sure that your eyes are over the ball, your shoulders are aligned, and your putter face is square. Once that is accomplished, all you need to do is make a good stroke!
- Using the “gate” function of the mirror also teaches you to hit the vertical center of the ball. Put your putter down behind a ball and look where the ball and the putter touch (too high on the ball). In order to hit consistent putts that roll true, you need to hit the vertica center of the ball with the Center of Gravity of the putter. To do this, your putter needs to be slightly off the ground when you impact the ball. Setting the ball on the mirror teaches you to do this!
