PutterGeek shares his thoughts on Putter Alignment Aids:
“Let’s give credit where credit is due: The Odyssey 2-Ball putter was the pioneer in linear alignment aids. Before the 2-Ball made its debut on the putting scene more than 10 years ago, the only alignment aid one could find on a putter was a little line on the top to the putter that showed where you were supposed to hit the ball.
“After the enormously popular 2-Ball Putter, linear alignment became all the rage. Ever since, golf putter marketeers have fallen all over themselves designing innovative linear alignment aids in an attempt to compete with or surpass the 2-Ball alignment embodiment. But ironically most golf putters including the 2-Ball and its imitators actually have no need for a linear alignment aid to indicate the location of a sweet spot because none have a sweet spot in the first place - but that is another topic, so let’s not digress.
“In addition to Linear Alignment, golfers also need to be concerned about Lateral Alignment, and Launch Alignment. Of the three, Linear Alignment is the least of a golfer’s alignment worries. Lateral Alignment affects putting precision directly, because when lateral alignment is off, the ball invariably misses the cup either to one side or the other. Launch Alignment is almost as insidious because when it is off, the ball invariably falls either short or over-runs the cup.
“One new technology golf putter has a perfected Linear Alignment Aid, a perfected Lateral Alignment Aid, and a perfected Launch Alignment Aid. In addition, this new technology golf putter has a unique Auto-Alignment feature which automatically corrects all miss-alignments in real time during the glide phase of the putting stroke. This new technology golf putter is the Quantum Roller Golf Putter.”
