What Is 3-2-1 PUTT?
3-2-1 PUTT is a golf putting training system that replicates the
"on-green" putting environment more accurately than any other
training system and allows you to train just like you play.
Why Should I Buy 3-2-1 PUTT?
3-2-1 PUTT will efficiently and naturally develop your muscle
memory to consistently produce a perfect putting stroke without
any artificial or mechanical devices.
How Does 3-2-1 PUTT Work?
3-2-1 PUTT has three components: a small laser to provide an
Invisible Putting Line (not visible to the user) to simulate the
ideal putter stroke path, a putter with a variable aperture
(opening) through the putter that allows the passage of the
laser beam, and a receiver that instantaneously provides a
visual and audible feedback to the user whenever the laser beam
is broken by a putting stroke that is not true along the
invisible line created by the laser.
Where Should I use 3-2-1 PUTT?
3-2-1 PUTT is designed generally for indoor use on a hard or
firm surface. It is ideal for practice at home or office.
Can 3-2-1 PUTT Be Used Outdoors?
Depending on the intensity and direction of ambient light, 3-2-1
PUTT may be used outdoors. However, care should be given to
secure a firm and flat surface on which to place the unit for
practice and care should be exercised to avoid any direct or
reflected light striking the laser sensing unit.
Can I The 3-2-1 PUTT Training Putter On The Green?
No, and you will not need it! Although the 3-2-1 PUTT training
putter is weighted and balanced to exactly replicate the feel of
the most competitive putters available on the market, it is
designed with an adjustable aperture to specifically help you
perfect your putting stroke.
Will Using The 3-2-1 PUTT Training Putter Affect My Putting
Stroke When I Use My Normal Putter?
Yes, in a very positive way! You will make many more putts with
any putter you choose to use.
So, I can Use My Own Putter AFTER Practicing With 3-2-1 PUTT?
Yes, absolutely! 3-2-1 PUTT will help you perfect your putting
stroke and you will putt with greater accuracy.
What Kind Of Putting Stroke Does 3-2-1 PUTT Promote?
3-2-1 PUTT essentially promotes a “straight back and straight
through” putting stroke. However, a slight horizontal ‘arc’ (in
to in) motion is accommodated by 3-2-1 PUTT.
Why Use A Straight Back & Straight Through Stroke?
3-2-1 PUTT promotes a “straight back & straight through” putting
stroke because 1) every putt, regardless of the number of
“breaks”, begins with a straight line, and 2) it is profoundly
easier to try to hit your initially straight putting line from a
straight line than it is to hit your straight putting line from
a curved path.
Can Golfers Who Have A Slight Arc In Their Putting Stroke Use
Yes. Depending on the size of the aperture opening used by the
golfer for practice, 3-2-1 PUTT will accommodate a slight arc in
the putting stroke. The wider the aperture setting, the greater
the horizontal putting arc that can be accommodated. At the mid
to small aperture setting your stroke must become much
straighter as you produce your backstroke and follow-through.
How Much Of An Arc Will 3-2-1 PUTT Accommodate?
The horizontal “arc” accommodated by 3-2-1 PUTT will vary from
approximately 6 to 8 degrees at the widest aperture settings
along an 8- to 10-inch backstroke and follow-through stroke
motion. The degree of horizontal “arc” accommodated varies
directly with the aperture opening you use. The smaller the
aperture opening used for practice, the straighter the stroke
that must be executed by the golfer during practice. 3-2-1 PUTT
simulates a perfectly straight putting line at the smallest
aperture settings. At the high Green stemp speeds that golfers
often play, the backstroke is generally limited to under 10
inches even for putts of 30 to 40 feet! At shorter putt
distances (5 to 20 feet) the normal take-away distance is more
likely in the range of 5 to 8 inches with a solid, and
accelerating follow-through to the stroke… even on slightly
At What Vertical Height On The Putting Back-Stroke and
Follow-Through Will I Lose The Invisible Laser Line?
The Invisible Laser Line is slightly higher than one (1) inch
above the floor unit. When using 3-2-1 PUTT, a golfer with a
normal putting stroke will lose the Invisible Laser Line between
12 to 15 inches behind the golf ball image located on the center
of the floor unit. This distance is dependent upon the golfers
specific style of putt, height, etc… This 12 – 15 inch effective
take-away / follow-through distance allows golfers to practice a
very wide range of putting speed ranges while maintaining a
perfect putting stroke motion.
How Much Will My Putting Accuracy Improve?
This depends on how much time you dedicate to practicing your
stroke with 3-2-1 PUTT. If you dedicate yourself to an initial
training regimen such as we propose in our Recommended Training
Program, and using various aperture settings during each
practice session, you should see about 33% improvement in your
putting accuracy from your benchmark test within 30 days. With
regular practice using various aperture settings, you can
continue to refine your putting stroke to perfection.
Does Putting Help You “Read The Green” Or Control The Speed Of
3-2-1 PUTT perfects your putting stroke and gives you increased
confidence on the green. Knowing that you can hit your putting
line and make the putt allows you to spend more time evaluating
the attributes of the green and effectively plan your putt.
However, 3-2-1 PUTT will not teach you to “read” the green… that
will be a function of repeated play, experience on different
courses, and confidence in delivering your stroke.
Why Was 3-2-1 PUTT Developed?
To help golfers (like me) of all skill levels develop a perfect
putting stroke through muscle memory training without the aid of
any mechanical device that provides artificial guidance or
physical points of reference upon which the body can become
dependent. All golfers miss too many "makeable" puts which
results in a higher than acceptable golf score/handicap.
What Makes 3-2-1 PUTT Different?
Unlike any other putting training device in the golf
marketplace, 3-2-1 PUTT does not use any form of mechanical
track, rail, visible line or other "mechanical element of
resistance" to position or guide the putter along the desired
putting line. 3-2-1 PUTT trains the user naturally…with no
artificial points of reference or resistance points that are not
available to you when you are on the green.
What Do You Mean When You Say That 3-2-1 PUTT “Replicates The
Essentially, on the green, the golfer really only has a top-view
of his/her golf ball, his/her putter, his/her putting stroke and
his/her knowledge of reading a green. There really is nothing
mechanical or visual to define your line or otherwise show you
the way to the hole. 3-2-1 PUTT provides the golfer with exactly
the same environment because it has no tracks, rails, visible
lines, or other mechanical device to assist the golfer. When
practicing with 3-2-1 PUTT, the golfer sees exactly what he/she
will see on the green… the top view of the golf ball. But with
the invisible line that is produced by 3-2-1 PUTT and the
special putter (which is the actual weight and balance of a
normal putter), the golfer can exactly practice a perfect
putting stroke repeated until it is perfected and ingrained in
his/her muscle memory.
How Do I Know If I Am Making A good Putting Stroke?
3-2-1 PUTT provides instantaneous visual and audio (audio can be
enabled and disabled as often as the user wants) feedback that
identifies the exact point at which the golfer’s putting stroke
deviates from a pure and accurate take-away or follow-through
path. This helps the golfer to correct flaws in his/her putting
stroke immediately and makes practice sessions incredibly
What Is The Feedback Provided To The Golfer?
When the Invisible Putting Line is broken by an imperfect
stroke, the golfer will receive a visible indication in the form
of a Red LED which will momentarily illuminate. If the audible
feature is enabled, the golfer will also receive an audible
indication along with the visible indication.
Is It Difficult To See The Visible Indications?
During the first few practice sessions (if you do not enable the
audible feature) you will be inclined to move your head slightly
to see if there is any visible indication indicating a poor
stroke. Soon, you will realize that the LEDs are positioned so
that any illumination can be easily seen in your peripherial
What Is A Type 2 Laser?
3-2-1 PUTT uses a Class 2 laser which is a very low-powered
laser that projects a red dot … because the 3-2-1 PUTT laser
beam is directed into a phototransistor receiving element that
is encased within a housing unit opposite from where the laser
beam originates (a path of about 4 feet), the laser beam cannot
be seen by the user. The laser is essentially similar to a laser
pointer that is used in business presentations etc. The laser
beam is not harmful HOWEVER care must be taken to AVOID ANY
DIRECT OR PROLONGED EYE CONTACT.
Has 3-2-1 PUTT Been Tested?
Yes, during development, 3-2-1 PUTT was extensively tested in
actual "on green" environments. In each of 5 independent testing
sessions, 30 putts were taken from each specific distance of
25', 20', 15', 10' and 5'… for a total of 150 putts per test
session. Tests were conducted at the US 1 Driving Range facility
in Rockledge Florida during normal hours and using the flattest
available section of the green.
What Method Was Used To Test 3-2-1 PUTT?
Method: Before practicing with 3-2-1 PUTT, a "benchmark" test
was taken to establish the user’s level of putting accuracy
according to the format noted in the question above. With the
benchmark established, the user practiced for 15 minutes each
day with 3-2-1 PUTT, for 2 weeks, using 3 different aperture
settings during each practice session to gradually reduce the
putter aperture and increase the level of difficulty required to
produce a perfect stroke. After 2 weeks, a proficiency test was
taken exactly according to the format used in the Benchmark test
and the results were recorded. The user then practiced with
3-2-1 PUTT for another 3 days and again tested the results… this
process was repeated for a total of 4 testing sessions. Test 5
was a Muscle Memory Test that was taken after a 2 week absence
of practice with 3-2-1 PUTT. This test was taken to test muscle
memory retention and the results were excellent with essentially
no loss of accuracy.
Can 3-2-1 PUTT Help Any Golfer?
An emphatic YES! 3-2-1 PUTT is an excellent putting training
system for golfers at every level from absolute beginner to PGA
Tour Professional. Men, women, juniors and seniors…everyone can
perfect their putting skills using 3-2-1 PUTT. The variable
aperture feature of the 3-2-1 PUTT training system can refine
your putting stroke to perfection with regular and consistent
practice. With 3-2-1 PUTT you can practice in the privacy of
your home or office and even a first time golfer can walk on the
course and be a putting star on the green!
Is the product portable?
Yes, 3-2-1 PUTT is light, quiet, and easily transportable. It
operates on 4 AA batteries which will provide many hours of use
because of the automatic Off that preserves battery life.
3-2-1 PUTT is great for use in the home or office. It is also
easy to pack and transport with you on vacation.
What Are The dimensions?
3-2-1 PUTT is approximately 46 inches long, 4 ½ inches in width
and about 4 inches high at the ends. The flat center section of
the 3-2-1 PUTT green which extends for approximately 38 inches
is ¼ inch in height along the floor line. The 3-2-1 PUTT
Training Putter is 35 inches in length and is weighed and
balanced exactly like the most popular putters used by golfers
today. The total putter weight is 495 grams.
