My Member Review

Having never really purchased a training aid specifically for putting, I was pretty excited to get the opportunity to review the Train Your Aim aid. A special thanks goes out to TST and David Keller for giving me the chance to try it out.

Before I received the Train Your Aim training aid, I visited the website to get more info about the tool that was making its way to me. I watched the short videos and read the list of benefits. Everything seemed to be pretty straight forward and specified all that I would expect from a putting training aid.  There are plenty of videos to watch so you get really familiar with how to use it and what to look for while on the practice green.

Upon receiving the training aid, I was very pleased at the size of the tool. It will easily fit in my golf bag so I can take it anywhere. The next thing I noticed was the hard plastic material. This was also a huge plus considering it will be tossed around in my bag for the majority of its life. And lastly, the orange color will obviously not be overlooked. I really liked this aspect as well because the point of the aid is to focus on the club face and alignment. The bright color really brings this to the golfer's attention. The ease of installation gets another thumbs up from me. It takes no time to dig it out of my bag and snap it on the putter so I can start training my aim. It is also adjustable, so it's very easy to adapt it to any putter and fit the eye of any golfer.

I have always used the line on my golf ball to line the putt up with my aim points. So in my training, I just focused on making sure the putter (and point on my Train Your Aim training aid) was aligned with the ball as usual. For me, the biggest benefit to this training aid was with my stroke. The bright orange pointer would immediately give me feedback if I was coming out of the stroke or pushing across the ball. This feedback helped me greatly! In the short time I practiced, my stroke became more consistent and it helped identify the fact that my stroke was pushing to the right which also fell in line with my miss. As strong as I felt my stroke was, the training aid showed me a big flaw. I am going to work this into every practice routine until I feel my stroke is where it should be.

For the low price of 9.99, it is well worth the cost in my opinion. David has developed an inexpensive and effective tool in the most simplistic compact form.

TN94Z thank you for the review....I really do appreciate it.  I very much like you observations about the putting stroke as that is something that actually struck me the most after I had developed the training aid.  It is primarily for club face alignment but having watched golfers use it, within a few minutes you can see their stroke improve.  I certainly have improved my putting and feel a great deal more confident about that aspect of my game.

Many, many thanks indeed.

David

    • Slow play is not keeping up with the group in front, unless its a group of really fast players.   The question is how to remedy it.  I play with guys who shoot high 70’s low 80’s whose pre-shot routines are intermidable.  In addition they are elderly and just move slow.  So as the young-un in the group I rush, especially on the green.  They play from the correct tees, it just takes them forever to go thru their routine.   Yesterday I played as a single.  Arrived at the course at 3 and was told to be off before 5 due to league play. I finished in 92 mins and played thru two other groups.  My goal is to not 3 putt and no 7’s on the card.  Shot 85. High scores does not automatically mean slow play.  
    • Day 63, July 27, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going. Rinse, Repeat, keep working on it kind of deal. I’m having small successes with the 3/4 swing so something must be working.
    • Day 153.  Before grocery shopping, I stopped at a putting green and worked for half an hour on 3' and 30' putts.  The end of the 3' practice included taking 17 shots to finish all 12 for my clock drill (not great, but not as bad as a month ago) and the 30' finished with my final six putts from 30' (due to this green, they weren't significantly different on the clockface, so I'm still getting a similar read, but I know better than to assume it.  And of course, I had to hit them the right speed) with a total of 11 strokes (five 2-putts and I also sank one). After lunch and before gym, I did the quarantine days 9 (again, with feedback from yesterday) + 10 (which took a while to get right... I'm not even sure I got it right, video to show up later today). Addendum:  I haven't figured out my trigger for the day 10 practice plan.  That's going to take me a bit more thought
    • MD: 89 (Black/Orange combo tees): 89. Up and down sandy on 17th was nice. One of my better sand shots of the week.  SV: 98 (Black tees).. Tough day. Bit too much of a course for me from black tees. Drive on 18 uphill was a bright spot that stood out though.  SV: 89 (Orange tees).. phew.. much better. 2nd shot on 16 uphill from 198 out over bunker with a borrowed 3 iron (thanks @DeadMan.. :-)) that dropped and stopped within a two feet for a kick-in might be the shot of the week for me.  LL: 92, 92 back-to-back on the same day. Tried my darndest hard to break 90 but couldn't twice. Best shot 8 iron on 7th par 3 from 155 for a bird.  Lac La Bell: 107. Forgettable day score-wise except for holes 15-16 where I finally hit couple of good drives.  
    • Pretty amazing for a $500 box. Close enough for me.
