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 with the help of our friends at BudgetGolf.com.
How much would you pay to become a Tour-level putter? Depending on your dedication and passion for the game, that number could easily reach into the tens of thousands of dollars, if not higher. However, the MVP Sport Hotwire Putting Aid can help you hone in your stroke for less than $10 and a few hours of practice.
There are countless numbers of training aids on the market because everyone is looking for that miracle fix. The fact of the matter is, golf is a simple game — get the ball in the hole in as few strokes as possible — and typically, the simplest aids provide the best results. Taking that axiom to heart, MVP Sport enlisted the help of world-renowned coach David Leadbetter to create their Hotwire Putting Aid.

Leadbetter has coached the likes of Ernie Els, Charles Howell III, Ian Poulter, Michelle Wie and many others. He has earned the ears of the world’s best players and he’s passing his knowledge of the putting stroke onto you with this simple device.
The Hotwire does a few things immediately after being set up. First, you get a visual aid to see a straight line to the hole. Second, being elevated from the ground, players can see how their putting stroke reacts on a typical putt. Finally, it gives instant feedback to the players as it pertains to eye position, path, stroke and result.
While you will need to make the time commitment to get the putting stroke of a Tour pro, the monetary investment is only $7.95.
