    Hammacher Schlemmer Electronic Training Putter

    Hammacher Schlemmer Electronic Putting Trainer If you think your short game is a little off, join the club.  Thousands of those who play the game are constantly working on their putting to improve their score.  Perhaps the game’s most important component is the “green”, and how fast you can get off of it will make or break your golfing accomplishments.  Without a good short game, don’t even waste your time on that expensive driver you’ve got your eye on.

    Hammacher Schlemmer, an age-old catalog of super-cool gifts and gadgets, offers the Electronic Training Putter, a device that helps you improve your ball striking, club path, and putt alignment. The system’s infrared sensors detect both the speed and direction of each putt, providing precise, instant feedback by showing exactly where the midpoint of the ball has struck the bar in relation to its “virtual hole.”

    A series of putts are displayed on the bar as separate illuminated tick marks. The flexible bar automatically bounces the ball back to you. The sensitive trigger bar can be set to any green speed and distances between four and 32-feet. The trainer challenges you with six games; you can play a game of “500″ which requires you to place a series of five puts as close as possible to the hole. Putts are graded on a scale of 0-100. Can be played on any surface. Includes two C batteries. ($329.95,
