NEW at the 2007 PGA Merchandise Show
1-25 to 1-27

TOMI System not ready for prime time -- plaugued by bugs that need fixin' before shippin'.

Golf IQ Stroke Trainer ($40) -- a stroke plane set to 19 degrees (standard lie angle) at a good price with adjustments to grove your tempo -- good innovation.

Rex Elmore's Trigger Golf "muscle memory" band ($30) -- a resistance-training exercise band to anchor in the green / ground and clip to the balance point of the putter shaft, whose use by stretching and holding in the finish position of a straight stroke creates a wonderful "afterimage" sensation of a good stroke -- simple and cheap, too!

Aldo Enrique's BreakBuster Golf Balls (sleeve of 3 free with S&H of $8.99) -- a central black aim line on the ball with two other lines in color on either side that aim in angles off straight, with a procedure for aiming that selects one of the colored lines for the stroke in relation to the slope of the break. Neat, helpful idea.

Jim Jamison: "As a tour player the two most important aspects for putting are line and feel for distance. The BreakBruster helps the golfer find the line on breaking putts."

3L Putt's Argon Laser Putter (about $150) -- a self-contained red-light laser with three beams, from putter face, one either side of the ball and one over top of ball, all projecting lines along the ground and activated by buttons embedded in the handle, for learning how to aim the putter where intended and therefore to also learn how to putt straight where the putter aims -- comes with a practice target for indoor work.

iClub Putting System software ($300) -- just another "technologist's" offering masquerading as teaching and causing golfers to chase parameters in a slice-and-dice approach. Useful for watching square impact, but so is the baseboard of a wall, a ruler, a string line or a chalk line or a line on the floor -- from a nongolfer graduate student at MIT.

Esoteric Golf Technology's Path Finder ($119) -- a metal putting deck with moveable magnetic pegs on either side of the stroke path in backstroke, impact area and thru-stroke to allow golfer to first find and then practice his particular stroke path, so he can always keep putter face square to the path -- a popular, less-expensive articulation of the professional-grade PuttingGuide ($1,650+) that performs function more elaborately and precisely, with Annika Sorenstam's coach Henri Reis, the dean of Swedish coaches.

Puttline ($20) -- a rounded attachment for the putter face that requires a square, centered stroke -- much cheaper than the Putterball sort of approach, very useful info about delivering the putter back to impact and how it feels -- real cheap and simple, but current version may not work with center-shafted putters (cure coming soon).

P3 Perfect Pendulum Putting aid ($90) -- magnetically attaching handles on frame on putter that separate the hands to different positions to train a non-hands, shoulder stroke -- interesting way to eliminate hand dominance and gain feel of good stroke in the upper torso area.

RedEye Laser Putter ($180) -- laser in face that is registered by a target sensor for training dead aim, and putter converts to USGA-legal for play -- good combo.

SuperStroke Putting Grip ($40) -- wide, oversized, squared, non-tapered grip similar in concept to Pure Pendulum, Two Thumbs, and Wishbone grips, which are cheaper.

Puttalite training aid (no price info) -- dome that projects down to surface a circular light as virtual hole 4.25" wide that records and reports audibly whether putted ball crosses hole on line and with good speed, with software to store practice sessions and play games -- kind of depends on whether surface is good, mostly high-tech gimmickry.
