Has anyone used the Ping putting app - where you put an iPhone into a holder on he putter. The app is free and the holder is $10.

 

Apparently tracks putting performance. iTunes Store doesn't have any reviews.

Ping HQ used it when I got fitted in Phoenix in February. Gives you interesting stats; for $10 it's worth it.

I got my Ping cradle a couple of weeks ago.  I think it is definitely worth the $10.  IMO it has helped me learn how to become a more consistent putter from a tempo standpoint and it has made me focus more on my clubface angle at impact.

I wish they made it for the Android platform.  Last time I checked it was an IOS only app.

I do have to confess, the Mission:Ping article did a great deal in leading me to buy the Ping app/cradle.

I used it once just to see what swing arc I had before a putter purchase, but I cheaped out and just duct taped it to my putter shaft since I only used it the one time. :)

Hopefully you didn't use $10 worth of duct tape

I use it. I'm not sure some of the stats there but it's nice to hone some consistency.

 

I'd recommend it. Especially if you use a ping putter it can make an immediate impact since they suggest putters and lie angles.

It's $10. Everyone here is going to spend $10 in a dummer way than a putting app.

I've heard good things about it, but never tried it myself.

 

Whether it's an app, a fitter, or whatever - figure out what works for you, buy it, stick with it.

It's nice to know what your stroke is like so you can get a putter that's a good fit.  I was a little surprised at the numbers when I was at the Ping fitter.  I thought I had SBST stroke, but the app said I had a slight arc.  My stroke was pretty much dead on to what it should be according to Ping.  Since I rely totally on feel, I don't think I would use it routinely as a monitoring tool.  I know if my stroke gets off a little, so I just spend a little time on the practice green.

Do you use it to fit people or use it to improve your putting?

The problem is if you have a phone case you have to take that off and get it down to the bare phone before you can use. That detracts me from using it since I have an Otterbox and they aren't exactly easy on/off.

The other thing to note about the app is that the arc it describes is the putters rotation and not its path.

It's worth it. I used it for a while and it gives you decent feedback for a small investment.
