The Belly Putter is getting a lot of attention … it has made a lot of money this year :)
We get a lot questions about how our EDGE Rails work with the longer putter.
This short video will give you a solid foundation about using the Belly putter and how to groove your stroke.
Martin Laird has been using the EyeLine Putting System for several years. "I love the mirror and putting plane and use it all the time, including every day before a tournament round!"
It's the best way to get:
- Precision alignment to your target
- Your eyes over the ball
- Your shoulders parallel to target
- Your putter face square
- and to putt straight back and through on a plane
Zach Johnson uses the Gate Trainer to help him set up 2 gates for his putter to travel through - one for the backswing, and one for the follow through.
Step #1 - Hit a few putts from the Gate Trainer to find the exact line of the putt.
Step #2 - Insert the tees as guides for your stroke - straight, arc, your choice.
Step #3 - Put the ball in the center of the gates (there is a hole in the Gate Trainer for this purpose)
Step #4 - Make a bunch of putts with a stroke you can rely on !
Put your routine into your practice session
Chris Stroud is a young pro who is improving every year. He is a great example of how to improve.
This video will show you the process he uses in his putting practice.
Each stroke has a full routine. “It builds consistency,” Chris says. “I want short putts to be automatic. My routine makes them easy.”
It’s working! Chris makes 95.96% of his putts of less than 5’ on the Tour.
The second thing to watch is his stroke “trigger” - his right thumb.
We need something to initiate our stroke - maybe you can use Chris’s method :)

For this drill:
1. Line up the mirror at the target
2. Use a rod for feet alignment
3. Use the mirror to check:
- Eyes over the line of the putt
- Shoulders parallel to line
- Putter face square to line
4. Create a gate to swing the putter through on the follow through - put tees in the slots where the rails attach
5. Put a tee behind the mirror, just to the outside of the back-swing path - so you can't swing the putter outside the line
6. Put a tee inside the back-swing path to prevent swinging the putter inside the line too quickly
