    I have a white face on my putter, and haven't had issues as long as I don't have the light pointing directly at the putter face (and I don't use the stickers). I stick with overhead lighting, and sometimes an additional reading light pointed at 45° down on the mat from behind.

    Challenged myself at the beginning of the week to sink 10 consecutive 10-foot putts on the Exputt sim. Last night was the fourth night of trying and I finally completed the challenge (after about 850 putts between the 4 nights).
    Key changes for me were to wrap my right thumb around (instead of pointing it down the grip) and adding a few degrees of forward press. Really useful to be able to roll hundreds of putts with the immediate feedback you get from the Exputt system.

    Ordered a couple of $-Taper 120 shafts for my 4 and 5 iron, and an MMT UT 105S for my 3 iron. Excited to have a full set up and running again!

    For reference, my Apple Watch SE (the very base model) can barely get through 9 holes, so for an 18-hole round I typically use my Link.
    Ran into an interesting issue on Saturday though where I went into a cedar hedge looking for my ball, and realized 20 yards down the fairway that my Link wasn't on my belt anymore. Spent about 10 minutes looking for it and couldn't find it, so finished the round and went back to look more. The phone app has a "Find My Link" feature which shows the last place it shared it's location with your phone, and I was able to narrow the search down by starting a new round on my phone and walking up and down the hedge until it showed that my Link was connected via Bluetooth. However, there is no way to use the app to get the Link to make a sound. Ended up finding it after another 10 minutes of searching, but it seems like that would be a useful feature that would be pretty easy to implement.

    Second round post ExPutt (I would say the hype is real!). Also jarred two putts from 23 feet! Note this is vs a 9hcap which is my actual target:

    Came across this on my instagram feed this morning - $100m investment not looking too good if this is a persistent issue! The one ball is definitely way off, but it looks like a good amount out of a dozen box have off-center cores to some degree.

    3.5 strokes gained over your averages though, that's a crazy improvement right off the bat!

    I had three big takeaways from using the Exputt. One is the importance of face angle - learned pretty quickly that path is pretty much irrelevant when it comes to putting, and you should just focus on face angle and speed. The second takeaway, related to that, was that I learned that I need a face balanced putter. I compared two similar mallets - one with 20° of toe hang, and the other face balanced, and my face angle distribution was waaaay better with the face balanced putter. The final takeaway was developing a system for distance control by maintaining the same tempo with every putt stroke and just varying the length of my backswing and follow through.
    Definitely feel you on the change in expectations though - I feel like my putting has been pretty bad over the past year, but when I pull up my Arccos data this is what it says:

    Think I'm gonna pull the Exputt out and get some practice in before the season really kicks off!
