Tried & Tested: Trueplane putting training aid
by Carly Cummins
March 20, 2012

Price: £44.99
They say: Trueplane is a pioneering innovative product that was the first inside-to-inside putting trainer to be widely used on tour. Launched in 2001, it quickly became established as one of the most popular training devices on tour. To date Trueplane has been used by more than 300 tour pros as well as many top coaches. No one is paid to use Trueplane - players and coaches use it because it develops the ideal simple and natural stroke. After getting Trueplane these players have won more than 300 tournaments on the top-level tours including 22 wins in Majors. Trueplane users have finished top of the putting statistics for the year on the PGA Tour and the European Tour on 10 occasions. They also include two players who have reached number 1 in the world rankings. As the pros have found, using Trueplane can lead to fewer putts, lower scores and tournament wins.

Carly says: It's fair to say that my confidence with the putter had reached rock bottom when I took the Trueplane onto the practice green last week, yet within five minutes of using this simple training aid my stroke felt completely transformed. It's simple to set up; you just find a straight putt, peg it into the ground and roll the ball from opposite the centre line. The Trueplane acts as a guideline, for your putter to rock back and through.

Taking the doubt away from my aim allowed me to focus on the fundamentals of my stroke and develop a perfect putter path. All I had to do then was keep my head down and listen for the putt to drop. I then moved to the side of the Trueplane and applied the sample principles and feeling to my stroke and hey presto the putts started dropping, one after one! I got a few strange looks from the golfers walking past the putting green wondering what I was up to, but it may have also been looks of intrigue because I was rolling in putt after putt. My plan is to practice my stroke with the Trueplane for five minutes on the green every time before I play a game and I honestly believe I'll be holing more putts than ever on the course - I'll keep you posted!
