First Look: RoboPutt

February 19, 2011 / by / 2 Comments

Golf is a sport where muscle memory is an important part of the learning process and improving your game. One area where muscle memory is very important is the putting stroke. How would you know what the perfect putting stroke feels like and consistently repeat it? You could buy countless putting training aids or take lessons with a PGA Professional. But what if you could just go to your local driving range and take putting lessons from a robot? You’re in luck! A new vending machine for putting lessons called RoboPutt was just introduced at the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show to do just that. Watch this video of Joe Sery, CEO/President of RoboPutt talk about the features of RoboPutt and give a demonstration on how it works. How RoboPutt Works Using your own putter, you can buy a 5-minute lesson for less than the cost of a sleeve of good golf balls. During your lesson, RoboPutt will move your own putter, perfectly repeating it time after time. Simply hold your putter and feel how it moves you. Like the saying goes, practice makes perfect! www.roboputt.com
