Tried & tested: PutterCups
by Carly Cummins
June 13, 2011

I find practice putting terribly boring, so I'm always on the look-out for new ways to keep my interest on the green. Handy then I should bump into training aid inventor Nick Metcalf a few weeks ago on the practice green at Wentworth before the BMW Championship and picked up his latest clever design called PutterCups.

The PutterCup
'Big as a bucket' or 'This for The Open'? The PutterCup hole will test you at four widths, from 8cm down to just 5cm - that's less than half the normal width!

The PutterCup is a very simple training aid that slots neatly into the golf hole and provides four different targets, all increasingly narrower than the hole.

The idea is if you get used to holing putts to a smaller target, the hole will seem even bigger out on the course.

The verdict?

The PutterCup improved my concentration, sharpened my practice and best of all led to less boredom on the greens. They're so simple – it's genius! Everyone who is serious about improving their putting statistics should practice to one of these. And all for a modest investment of £9.95 RRP.
