Golfers are gear heads, equipment nerds and endless tinkerers, so when one of those late-night infomercials comes on promising instant results after having a few drinks, we listen a little more intently and have a tendency to get a little click-happy online. That’s where our Late Night Online Purchases franchise comes in, a review of a certain piece of equipment, training aid or something else that caught our eye with the help of our friends at BudgetGolf.com.
For most amateur golfers, nearly half of their strokes in a given round come on or near the green with a putter in their hands. How can something so simple be so costly and frustrating? An easy answer is that you shouldn’t expect great results with poor form, which is where the Putter Cube comes in.
The Putter Cube is a simple, yet effective way to train yourself to hold the putter like the pros do, thus allowing you to deliver the club to the ball in a consistent and proper manner.
The Putter Cube does a few things instinctively. By simply placing your wrist and forearm flush to the training aid, you are already creating the proper wrist angle with your trail hand. In turn, this allows you to maintain the proper wrist angle, which leads to a consistent stroke and dependable results.
With your hands, wrists and arms locked in to the Putter Cube, the orientation of the face of the putter is square to the path by default. After using the Putter Cube for a few minutes before each round, the sensation of the correct wrist angle and setup will become ingrained in your stroke, leading to quick self-correction and more confidence on the greens.
