TIBA PUTT - Impact Zone Training Aid

Written by:Dan Mann

 

THIS PUTTER GADGET WILL MAKE YOU A STAR

 

When I was offered a chance to test the TIBA Putt I scoffed. You see, I am Canada’s Self-Proclaimed Best Putter and I laugh at your training doodads. However, my wife, the beautiful and very talented Mrs. MBP, thinks she’s this great putter.

 

She's not, but I dare not state this aloud at risk of rocking the perfect marriage. She takes way too long of a wavering backswing and decelerates hard far too often. So when the TIBA putt arrived I cunningly convinced her to try it, stating “You need this, you’re not that good.” I cooked dinner and washed the dishes that night, but I’m still the better putter in the house.

 

 

PREPOSTEROUS

WHAT?! It’s a cardboard box, with two orange pieces of plastic and four short tees. Not even three-inch tees that I can use after I stuff this thing in the back of a drawer only to be forgotten. I will admit the instructions are well laid out and setup is a breeze.

I’m telling you people are looking at us funny on the putting green with our fancy orange thingies… Sigh… Now I gotta explain what we’re doing.

This is TIBA Putt – Impact Zone Training Aid. It’s supposed to:

 

Correct swing path

Square face angle

Improve distance control

 

Ha?! Laugh at me now will you.

PROGRESSIVE

Day one, we’re 6 feet out with 2 sleeves of balls and spent an hour on the putting green. At the start, the Mrs. was hard pressed to make 50% of her putts, that’s 3 out of 6 for those counting. But I’ll tell ya, by the end of that hour she was ramming in 5 outta 6 no problem and this was with substantial gaps on either side. Who would have thought focusing an inch on either side of the ball would have such an "impact"? There’s truly something to be said for the visual and mental guide reinforcement TIBA putt presents.

A week later, we went back out and ran the same tests with the orange guides pretty much putter width. There are 2 things that jump out here right away; she has a much shorter controlled backswing and a much more aggressive direct follow through. You can see her focusing on squaring the face and maintaining a smooth stroke.

 

I’m keeping my mouth shut ‘because I’m still the better putter, but I won’t say it hasn’t helped me too.

 

Here's a fancy image because the boss is all about #DATACRATIC

PROFOUND

I sprained my knee a month ago (everyone stop what they’re doing and feel very, very sorry for me right now) and I've done nothing but push a cart caddying for Mrs. MBP. This means I've had a lot of time to inspect her putting. Folks, listen very, very carefully: TIBA Putt really, really works. Kyle Henderson and Don Everhart TIBA Putt creators are onto something special here.

I’m not sure who replaced my old crappy putting wife with this new version, but I’m blown away and diggin' it. It’s about the things I see that she doesn’t even realize are happening.  On the course her stroke is very solid and direct. You can see how much squarer the putter face maintains through impact and by golly is she ever making a ton more putts inside 15 feet. I’m really blown away by the aggressive confidence she’s gained stepping up to short putts too.

 

Oh and let’s not forget TIBA’s last claim there about distance control. Not only did the Mrs. notice a marked improvement, but I’ll go on record as saying it’s nothing short of phenomenal.

 

 

THE WRAP

MBP APPROVES

Yes I scoffed at the TIBA Putt's claims as sorcery and witchcraft when it first arrived, but I, Canada’s Self-Proclaimed Best Putter, was quickly swayed and am now a believer.  Not only is it good for beginners, but its innovative design can easily adapt to and improve even the most established strokes.  Trust me when I say you’re going to see this guy practicing with his orange pieces of plastic for the foreseeable future. This is one of those products you may overlook, but if a good friend recommended it, you’d buy. Consider me that good friend.

Seriously I was making like 6 outta 6 all day with the TIBA.

May pick one up for my son who's an awful awful putter. Poor kid wanted a par so badly the other day only to miss a 4 footer. I can see all the time his face angle is open or closed, but I'll get scolded if I tell him on the course.

 

$25 ain't bad at all! Great writeup Dan!

Great review, MBP.  As a self proclaimed horrible putter, I will have to give this a try.

Like MBP, I consider myself to be pretty good (OK, great) putter.  Also like MBP, my wife suffers when she gets to the green.  If this can help Mrs. MBP, then it's worth $20 to me to not watch that anymore!

Good offer on international shipping - $15. Guess I need to show this to our readers.

 

Thanks for making me spend some money :)

sounds like an interesting device... perhaps two wood blocks would do the same but think it could be interesting.

Just placed an order for one. Would really help my son if it does everything it says. Plus $20 is cheap for a training aid.

I may give this a try, my putting arc is to bulky and heavy lag around much and my Putt Doctor matt is a bit big when set-up. This seems like a very very good compromise that looks effective, something I can keep in the bag or at least the trunk at all times and take on business trips...

It's pretty much the prefect tune up tool. You have one of those baaad putting days and TIBA will help get things back online at least.

Great legs Dan... and great review. When I first saw this product I thought it was just a novelty putting aid.

 

Should I have shaved for this photo shoot?

 

It's works well, looking forward to your feedback.
