The alarming reason there’s a 95% chance your putter isn’t aimed where you want it w/ David Edel

We all like to think we’re aimed at the hole when we line up a put but are we?  Maybe you’ve purchased a putter with bold alignment aids and hope that’s the cure.  But what impacts alignment and how well do golfers actually line up their puts?

Putter Myths

In this episode we tackle a couple myths around putter design and putting.

I believe in the basic premise, that my job as a fitter or a putter maker is to make what a person sees is real and what they feel to be real.

David Edel

edel putterThere are attributes to putters that give the perception of being either open or closed when looking at alignment.

For example, by moving attention backward on a putter, it tends to look open. When you do a laser test you can see it’s square to the target but to the mind it looks wide open. On the other hand when you move the attention forward, the putter tends to look closed.

YEARS OF RESEARCH AND DESIGN IN THE MAKING; THE EDEL SINGLE LENGTH SYSTEM SLS-01 IRONS ARE NOW HERE. SIMPLIFY YOUR GAME.

Traditional logic enforces the notion that variable length irons are correct and that smart people before us deciphered the most accurate way to play the game. Yet, few have questioned the reason why our clubs variate in length.

Ockham’s Razor is a scientific technique or discovery tool to guide researchers and scientists which states Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. In golf terms, a set of clubs that allows the player to maintain a single ball position, swing plane, and rhythm rate would provide the logical explanation to achieve optimal performance.

All with a club that has singularity of length, weight, bounce, shaft weight, and shaft flex to optimize the simplicity of repeating your ideal swing.

SIMPLIFY YOUR GAME. SINGLE LENGTH. SINGLE SWING.
