My Member Review

Pros:

  • Narrows focus while practicing.

  • Small & Light, can take it to the course if I wanted to.

 

 

Cons:

  • Have to squeeze it into my home putting green to make it fit. This could be considered a pro since it narrows your focus even more, but I'm calling it a con because I suspect it will limit the durability of the product since it's just plastic. (The first pic below is with it just sitting on top of the cup. The next shows my cup, and the last is with the half cup squeezed into the cup.)
  • Getting the balls out of the hole are awkward without removing the half cup first.

Conclusion:  It's a clever concept. I don't remember who said it, but I believe in the concept of "the smaller the target, the smaller the miss." So I get that practicing on a tiny hole will help your game. Hitting straight practice putts on a regular hole from 5 feet away - if you're dropping some of them in the side, then you're missing those putts from just 6 or 7 feet. Yet, because you're making them, you may not realize that. With the half cup, there is no question. If you don't hit the center of the hole, then it's not going in. I like it. I won't bother to take it to the course with me, even though I can, but it will live on my home practice green and get used frequently.
