Has anyone done the course? Looks interesting. For those that dont know its the system behind the predictive line you see on tv when golfers are putting.

Hinosapra, Not sure from memeory it's around $220. You spend half a day learning about green reading and they give you the aimpoint charts etc to useand keep. It's worth the investment and will help your green reading dramatically. Justin Rose had been struggling with his putter for a long time until this year he did aimpoint. Stacey Lewis her sucess on the LPGA tour has been from improvement gains with her putting and doing aimpoint. It is great value for money the knowledge you do gain from attending their clinics. I reckon it was the best $220 I had ever invested in my golf.

Havent done it but many who have think its brilliant. $220? Thats 3 30min lessons or so. If it picks me up a few strokes seems well worth it.

I've also done the Aimpoint clinic (same one as Zen). I found it to be very useful in terms of viewing greens and looking at slopes in a whole new way. Prior to Aimpoint, I had no real understanding of greens, and once I'd get on one, I'd just begin using my eyes and having a guess at the amount of expected break on a putt. These days after doing the Clinic, I start my green reading as I approach the green, and once on them, use my feet and my balance a lot more, in order to work out the slope ( which is something I never knew was possible prior to Aimpoint.) The actual Aimpoint Charts work, but it takes an ongoing commitment to use them, and you still have to putt the ball on line ... and at the right pace .. in order to get them to drop in the hole. In general though, Aimpoint, and what I discovered during the clinic, can take a lot of the guess work out, particularly on greens where the break isn't quite so obvious at times .... that's when using the feet as I learnt ...... really comes into its own.
