Importance of Putting
Putting is the easiest aspect of golf to improve and lower your scores. Eliminating 3-putts alone can save the average to higher handicap golfer three to four strokes per round. Making more putts of 8-10 feet or less results in more birdies, more saved pars and fewer double-bogeys.
Statistically, more PGA Pros rank in the Top 10 and Top 50 on the money list who also rank in the Top 10 in Putting from four to eight feet versus those who ranked in the Top 10 in Driving Distance, Greens in Regulation or Driving Accuracy.
Practicing with the Dead Zero Putting Disk can help you gain confidence to become a better putter and save you strokes on the course.
How It Works
The Dead Zero Putting Disk is based on the proven concept that practicing with a target smaller than the actual target will help you build confidence and make it easier to hit the real target in game situations.There are plenty of examples of this across several sports and including golf already. Throwing footballs through a tire, shooting basketballs at a hoop with a reduced rim size, and hitting baseballs with a skinny bat are perfect examples.
In golf, you already have reduced-sized club faces on irons and putters and reduced-diameter cups on putting greens. What you don’t have is a properly designed and sized putting target that can be used when and where you want.
You can practice with the Dead Zero Putting Disk on any surface on any green at any time and get instant visual feedback while you practice. Keep it in your bag or keep it handy at home or in your office. Practice on any area of the green and challenge yourself with different slopes and speeds.
Although designed for improving your confidence and making more putts of ten feet or less, the Dead Zero Putting Disk can also be used for long-range lag putting or green-side chipping.
Why It Works
A golf hole is not as large as it appears. How many times have you hit putts that looked like they were going to catch the left or right side of the cup only to see the putt lip out? The reality is that the area of any golf hole where you are guaranteed to have the putt fall in versus lip out is much smaller than the full diameter of the hole. The Dead Zero Putting Disks are founded in scientific research and have been designed to be the optimal size for small target putting practice.
The disk size (diameter) is based on research combining ideal putt speeds (those that would travel 17” past the hole) with the measurement of an above-ground target. Referencing the graphic below, any putt that rolls within the target width (one that would strike the disk) would fall into the hole. Any putt that rolls to the left or right of a certain width, or misses the disk, results in a putt that misses the hole or lips out.
Golfers can practice with the Dead Zero Putting Disks on any surface from any direction. A putt with an ideal speed that either strikes the disk directly or just glances it slightly represents a putt that would have gone into the cup. That’s the beauty and simplicity of the Dead Zero Putting Disk.
Hit it and it’s in!
