This is how it works
With the Putting Plane System you can easily
use the mirrored surface to check that your eyes
are over the ball, shoulders are lined up, and
putter face is square.
The 2 straight rails allow the putter to come
straight back and through the stroke. Its
adjustable rails fit any putter size. You will
have never rolled it so well. The Putting system
conveniently fits in your bag.
Step 1 - Precision
Alignment to target line
- The first step in using the EyeLine is
to accurately align it to your target.
- Step behind the EyeLine and aim the
center black line exactly at the target.
- The smaller your target, the more
accurate your alignment will be.
- Take your stance over the ball.
- Don't be surprised if your eyes try to
tell you your line is off. You may have been
seeing incorrectly for years!

3 - Square putter face to target
Step 4 -
Shoulders square to target line
- Since the
putting motion is a rocking of the arms and
shoulders, the shoulders need to be lined up
to the target
Look at the
bottom of the EyeLine nearest your feet.
You should be able to see the tops of both
If you see only
your back shoulder, you are open to the
target line. If you see only your front
shoulder, you are closed to the line.
- Watch your
shoulders as you make a stroke. Are they
moving back and forth down the line.
Step 5 -
There are two
things you must do to start the ball on line:
You have to keep the putter moving directly down
the target line, and you must maintain a square
clubface. The way to do those things is to
ensure that the putter is gaining speed as it
strikes the ball, rather than decelerating.?

All good putters have an accelerating stoke.
Good touch on the
greens demands a stroke that is accelerating
through the ball.
The EyeLine was
created to help with this good habit. There are
holes behind the slot for the ball. When you
place a tee in one of the holes, it provides a
restriction to your back swing and forces you to
accelerate through the ball.
- Set up 10
feet from the hole.
- Place a tee
in the EyeLine in the last hole behind the
ball. Let the tee restrict your stroke and
force you to accelerate. Stroke several
putts trying to hit the ball further each
time. Move the tee to the next closest hole,
and continue until the tee is in the closest
hole to the ball.
- Get the feel
of accelerating through the ball. Remove the
tee and hit more putts.
- Notice how
solidly you are striking the putts?
Note: This is
a drill to help you learn to accelerate. As you
do this drill, pay attention to the change in
direction of the putter. A smooth transition
combined with an accelerating stroke is Gold!
