2-piece putting training system that can be used anywhere (indoors or outdoors). Low-priced tool uses a lined mat so you can see whether your putting stroke is going off line during the back swing. Only properly struck putts will go up the ramp piece, giving you immediate feedback.

Putt trainers are pieces of equipment that help you work on your putting game at home. For those days when you can’t make it to the golf course, you can still practice with these tools. In fact, some putting trainers are made to be used outdoors on the putting green at the course. Certain putt trainers are designed to help you physically learn to keep the putter head on line. Others attempt to help you visualize successful putts with guidelines printed on the trainer. Or the trainer will use a mirror, so you can see whether you are lined up properly. You also may find putting trainers aimed at helping you strike the ball with the proper speed.
