We were up that way in October. You're welcome to come to Erie any time, as our indoor facility is great for learning AimPoint. You can stay and hit balls or use the simulator or whatnot the whole weekend.

I thought about coming down earlier actually when I saw that facility on your website, it looks awesome!  But since AimPoint seems to require some practice to really get moving with it, I thought it best to wait until I can go right out onto a course at home to work with it while the lessons were fresh in my head.

 

That's the plan anyway.  We'll see how long that lasts over the winter.  I'm already feeling the golf itch and it's only mid-January!

It does help to practice it outside on an actual green, yes, even if you do practice for a little bit inside first. We'll see you in, what, March then? :)

So I know nothing of Aimpoint other than what I've read on a few threads here, but I gotta say it sounds as intriguing as heck to me.  I am an engineer (read: nerd) so the idea of reading greens using charts and math and whatever else you guys get from these classes is getting me excited.  (And I stink at reading greens)

 

Now my question:  Are these classes a one day thing or a series?  (Since the nearest instructor is 90 minutes away from me, I'm hoping they do one day classes)

 

Thanks!

It's a single 2-2.5 hour class.

 

You don't really "use math" but it's based on math and physics so it's accurate.

I'm in for the one in Ottawa on May 12th. Really looking forward to it and will post a review after it happens!

I'm doing an Aimpoint clinic in Providence RI on April 7.  Looking forward to it.

Aimpoint is easy and it works--very effective at reducing 3 putts. You aren't going to "make everything", but you won't completely miss read a putt; so if you approximate the correct speed, you'll be close. By analyzing the break on the initial putt and then watching the ball curve toward the relative middle of the hole, if you have a second putt, you have a lot of confidence making the short one.

I took my Aimpoint class last year with Erik and Dave when they came out to Socal ... in September, I think, and have wanted to post in this thread since.  I have been using it for almost 10 months now and its really starting to make a big difference for me.  Over the course of my last 5 rounds, I have averaged 1.7 putts/hole, and 1.8 putts/GIR.  I am also averaging over 2 birdies per round over that stretch, and I have made at least one long putt (25 feet or more) in each of those rounds as well.  I'm also noticing that the putts that are missing are also a heck of a lot closer too, burning edges or close to it, and leaving tap-ins for my second putt more often.

 

The big thing, however, is that I'm starting to gain more confidence in reading the green with my feet.  It sounds silly, but my I'm getting a lot better at noticing subtle things all the time.  Not just while doing my midpoint read, for example, but as I'm walking to and from the hole, I'm noticing how it feels (as if I'm walking slightly up or downhill, for example) a lot better.  And its a snowball effect.  I make a couple of good reads, then my stroke becomes more confident, then I become even more confident in my reading ability, and then I expect I'm going to #make everything!

 

I'm finally starting to really love me some Aimpoint!!

I agree with what you have said.  Pacing out the distance is a critical information gathering step.  I also pace out chips and pitches where possible because there is so much information to be gained.  I get some interesting comments on "the book".  I got a leather score card holder to protect it a bit. Well worth the time and money.

Trust your feet and read.  As you get more comfortable, that read will be more accurate.  Don't second guess it.  When you do, you will miss and regret the change.  Speed is the real key to success.  Your reads will be right on target.
