EyePutter Takes on Anchored Golf Stroke Ban(February 19, 2014)
Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
Talk to any golfer and they will say the best way to lower your handicap is by improving your short game - not off the tee. To help golfers achieve this goal, PGA Golf Professional Rob Roy announces the launch of the EyePutter. This new training aid for both novice and experienced golfers teaches proper putting technique and helps golfers learn to read a putt by standing over it, to see the line every time.
The United States Golf Association and PGA recently banned the "anchored stroke," a type of stroke where the golf club is anchored against a part of the body during putting. The change, to be enforced by 2016, removes the advantage of using anchored long putters and belly putters two types of putters that have helped professional golfers win big tournaments in the past few years.
As a result of this change, a number of golfers are switching back to using a traditional stroke method. The EyePutter will help all golfers improve their putting techniques, easing the transition back to the use of traditional putters and strokes.
EyePutter founder and PGA professional Rob Roy has been training golfers for over 13 years. Throughout his career his keys to successful putting have been based on two important components: muscle memory and confidence. To take the thought out of putting, Roy designed the revolutionary training aid the EyePutter. Both novice and experienced golfers can use the EyePutter to refocus energy and attention to improve their game on the green.
Golf is a game of inches. A slight adjustment can mean the difference between a ten foot putt for birdie and a two-putt for par, Roy said. Too much focus is put on redesigning drivers to get a good start off the tee. While this is important, the goal in golf will always be to finish with the lowest score, so golfers should spend more time focused on putting. To lower a handicap, the best place to start is on the greennot the tee. The EyePutter helps golfers master proper technique for grip, stance and stroke, and more importantly, teaches them to read a putt by standing over it, so they'll see the line every time."
The EyePutter works to create muscle memory that trains the body to move in a manner that is more controlled for a focused putt. It trains for proper form and technique that will lead to lower scores without the need of anchored strokes. The EyePutter is attached near the bottom of the putter and has a level that will train muscles what it feels like to have the putter blade parallel to the ground. It also has a mirror that trains golfers to look at the spot, instead of the cup which leads to improper body mechanics.
As a supplement, PGA Pro Rob Roy has recorded a series of short training videos that come free with EyePutter purchases. The videos demo how golfers should use the EyePutter to improve technique, and ultimately, scores.
About Rob Roy and EyePutter:
Rob began his PGA career as an Assistant Golf Professional at the prestigious Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Not one to waste time, Rob completed his apprenticeship in the minimum number of months allowed by the PGA. Rob then spent the majority of his PGA career as the head Golf Professional at a private equity club in southwest Florida where he became a highly sought after instructor.
Rob built a reputation as an instructor that wasn't afraid to "go against the grain" of traditional teaching methods to help his students. In no aspect of the game was this more evident than in the art of putting. Rob's years of putting research not only transformed his game, but the games of his students as well.
Rob recognized the ability of the EyePutter to develop muscle memory and confidence, two of his keys to successful putting.
