Need Help Reading Greens ?

by Mike


What are the chances that I can get away with using this sweet little thang as my ballmark the next time I play a round at my local club ?

It’s called EEZ-READ and pronounced easy read and the inventor says it will give me a quick read to see if the green is uphill, downhill, breaks left, breaks right, etc.

I don’t know about you, but even if I can’t use it in competition, I’d still like to go out and survey my local clubs greens and make a nice little diagram like the well paid boys use.

If anybody has any experience with this, let me know what you think.

I met the inventor at the Vegas PGA show. Great concept – been using it since late summer and my putting has been getting better.

Thanks for the validation Ted.

These little training aids can be great tools for working on your putting at the local course. But of course, they are not allowed in competition. There you only get yourself, your caddie, and your clubs.

If these were legal in play, Tour players would be seen pulling them out of their pockets and checking the green before they putt. They would make use of any advantage they could get.

But just because we do not see them on TV in use does not mean they-or similar training aid-are not being used.

The best training aids, coaches, and commitment to practice with them are the hallmark of the pros.

Oh yeah, I forgot talent.

Super idea…’s really well, I’m putting much better and it also speeds up my play on the greens…heck if the USGA makes laser gps systems legal why not this!

I’ll go along with that Mark.

Thanks for stopping by.

Looks like a great little gadget. Dont think you will get away with this in competitions though!!

A pal of mine is the PR guy for EEZ Read and they’re thrilled that their product won best of show at the PGA Show this year. Neat product. I also use it to measure the “level” of all sorts of things, like my counter tops.
