I quickly found that on shorter putts that I couldn’t
guide the ball like I’ve grown accustomed to. The Ball of Steel just wouldn’t go
very far and the putter would almost just push it along. Not good. With a little
more time I realized that I needed to stay connected and keep the putter moving
through the ball. In other words I’m hitting through the ball, not at the ball.
This is actually a thought I carry with me to the green for shorter putts now as
a reminder to go through the ball and not at the ball. They roll just like a
golf ball, just not as fast as they’re 5x the weight of a normal golf ball so to
get the Ball of Steel going along the intended path you need to give it a good,
If your stroke is nice and firm that’s all well and good but if you’re making
contact on anything but the center of the club face the Ball of Steel will tell
you that immediately. This actually informed me of something I had no idea I
needed work on and that is more centered contact. I always thought that I was at
or near the center of the club face when putting but evidently I’m not so much.
This would probably explain the fact that most of my misses tend to be to the
right of the cup or target line. Working with these really opened my eyes to
this new miss of mine and it’s something I’m really conscious of now. I think it
may be due to a faulty swing path more than anything but now that I know it’s
there it will give me more meaning to my practice.
Another thing I noticed while testing the ball of Steel was that my stroke
became more compact and accelerated better than it previously did. Couple this
with the better contact I was getting near the center of the club face and my
putts were things of beauty. Would this carry over to using a real golf ball?
Most definitely! My stroke with a real golf ball had more energy and pace to it
which 1) didn’t leave any putts short, 2) increased my accuracy, and 3) gave me
a more repeatable golf stroke without having to over think things too much.
This is really nice in the fact that you can do a nice three ball putting drill
with these instead of chasing the same one all over the putting green. Well
maybe not all over since as I noted before these are designed to be used for
putts inside of 6′. I really enjoyed testing these and at the very least one of
these will remain in my golf bag at all times. Much like a swing weight for a
golf club, this will be my ‘swing weight’ for my putter which will help me warm
up the old flat stick before a round. Especially if I don’t have enough time to
warm up on the practice green. Eyeline Golf has some really good training aids
that are geared towards helping you improve your putting and this one certainly
fits the bill. Effective, portable, and user friendly, sounds like a worthwhile
training aid to me. I think you’ll think so too once you stop shaking over those
6 foot putts your friends won’t give you.
