Visio Putting Gates are simple and easy to use devices that give you feedback on your ability to hit your starting line.

The Visio colour coded gates come in a pack of 3 sizes (RED 60mm, SILVER 55mm and BLACK 50mm) which when placed at specific distances from the ball, on your chosen target line, will create a specific angle of error that you will need to achieve in order to successfully putt the ball through the gate.

50mm @ 17 inches requires less than 0.5 degree of error 
50mm @ 11 inches requires less than 0.75 degree of error

55mm @ 14 inches requires less than 1 degree of error
55mm @ 19 inches requires less than 0.75 degree of error 

60mm @ 40 inches requires less than 0.5 degrees of error

60mm @ 20 inches requires less than 1 degree of error

Practicing with the gates on your chosen line is an interesting challenge of your ability to start the ball on a specific line when you consider at 10 ft 1 degree of error would be lined up to the edge of the hole, while at 20ft 0.5 degree of error would also be lined up to the edge of the hole.

Therefore on a straight 10 foot putt you will need to develop accuracy of less than 1 degree of error in your starting line to be successful, or at 20ft less than 0.5 degree

Training with both different gates at different distances will give you feedback on the club face angle and quality of strike at impact and as a consequence will help train your ability to start the ball successfully on your line and improve the accuracy of your putts on the golf course.

The putting gates also come with an indoor holder so you can use the gates for your indoor putting practice. Each leg securely fits into one of the two supplied bases to allow the gate to stand alone on any hard surface

A tape measure is also supplied so you can precisely place the gate at exact distances to be sure you are practicing with known quantities of error. Such diligent practice will give you accurate feedback on your ability to start the ball on line.

I purchased the PUTTout mat some weeks ago so I could practice putting in lockdown indoors; the gates were my next purchase. Rather expensive, but I have found them useful to analyse the accuracy of the starting line of my putts, and with three different widths, you can increase your challenge by moving onto the narrower ones. Will be great to use them on an actual putting green, and see if my putting has improved!

As with all the Visio putting gear - Great product! As a teaching pro I have a lot of their equipment it allows for great practice. My students love it and I find the feedback you get makes the practice worthwhile. I find the template, Laser and putting gate a really good combo. Use it regularly and better putting is guaranteed!

Great Visual

The product is great to narrow your focus and get immediate feedback.

Simple but effective...and harder than it looks!

These gates don't half show up start line flaws. Definitely makes you think about hitting the start lines of your putts and was surprising the level of concentration I needed to make to hit the gates. Very good and simple tool which are now always used.
