A brand new edition, Mi Putting Template PURE Arc, is a putting mat designed once again to give you visual and kinaesthetic feedback of the stroke shape.
The PURE Arc version of the ever-popular Mi Putting Template places a stronger visual emphasis on the projection of the putter arc itself as opposed to the face angle. This is ideal for the player who wants to train the path shape without the need to reference the face angle.
The curvature on the Mi Putting Template PURE Arc is a projection of the three-dimensional travel of the ‘sweet spot’ when travelling on the degree of inclined plane. Along with the projection of the curvature of the stroke, the Mi Putting Template PURE Arc displays only the club face angle of the putter at address & impact.
The arc of the stroke is aligned also so that the projected path at impact is perfectly square to the ball to target line, which is also referenced on the Mi Putting Template PURE Arc. A common preference for many golfers and teaching professionals is to ensure the putter face is square to the path of the stroke, particularly through the hitting area and that the path is pointing down the ball to target line at impact.
The Mi Putting Template PURE Arc also comes with holes placed strategically where you can fix tee pegs to help physically constrain the stroke to the shape of each individual arc. Tee pegs can also be placed in these holes to help keep the template fixed flat on the ground. Holes are also located at the end of the template where the ball must exit in between if the ball is to start your ball to target line. The Visio ‘Putting Gates’ can be placed in the holes to give you feedback on the club face angle at impact and the accuracy of your start line. The inner hole locations (closest to the centre of the template) give you a 49mm gate width which will allow you no more than approximately 0.5 degrees of error.
The middle set of holes are designed for the 50mm Visio ‘Putting Gate’. This gate at this location will give you a maximum of 0.6 degrees of error. Tee pegs used at this location will give you a maximum of 1 degree of error. The outer hole locations are designed for the 55mm Visio Putting Gate. This gate at this location will give you no more than 1 degree of error. Tee pegs used at this location will give a maximum of 1.4 degrees of error. Using the different hole locations and the different ranges of error will test the accuracy and ability to start your ball on your line.
