Golfers are gear heads, equipment nerds and endless tinkerers, so when one of those late-night infomercials comes on promising instant results after having a few drinks, we listen a little more intently and have a tendency to get a little click-happy online. That’s where our Late Night Online Purchases franchise comes in, a review of a certain piece of equipment, training aid or something else that caught our eye.
We’re all looking for an edge on the course, whether that comes off of the tee, from the fairway or around the greens. Statistically speaking, if you want to improve your scores, the best place to start is on and around the putting surface. Over the course of a typical round of golf, more than half of your shots come from within 50 yards of the hole.
Walt Edgerley took that piece of information and developed the Pro Putt 360, a multi-faceted training aid that can be used to improve not only your putting but also your chipping and pitching.

The ring fits perfectly around your golf ball, giving you the ability to draw a nice, neat and thin line 360° around the ball, unlike most other ball alignment aids. In addition, once you have your alignment line drawn, the light and portable nature of the Pro Putt 360 acts as a great target for a myriad of short game practice drills.
Whether you find yourself on a crowded putting green and in need of your own target, the Pro Putt 360 offers not only an alternative to sticking a tee in the ground, it acts as a better alternative thanks to its shape.
You can also use the Pro Putt 360 for your chipping practice with its two-piece set. Place on marker where you want to land the ball and the other where you would like the ball to finish. This way, you can have a visual target for your landing area and get a better idea for the firmness and speed of the greens as it relates to your chipping and pitching.
The two-piece set is available on various websites across the internet, including Amazon.com where it retails for $10.95.
