Hey guys I included a GIF at the end of my review of me putting let me know what I can do to change or what I am doing wrong.

I'm no expert, but since you asked... to me its looks like @cnosil is right.  Your body looks like it's turning.  From the gif I see your left shoulder go up and back like the left arm is pulling the putter to the inside; almost a mini chicken wing with the left elbow.  Maybe it's just the camera angle though.  Check to make sure your shoulders are square at setup and not open slightly; keep them square.

The age-old drill is to put a "gate", with tees or something else, about 4-5" in front of the ball in line with the hole on a straight putt.  The gate should be just a little wider than the ball.  How wide depends on how good you are.  If you can consistently get the ball through the gate, you should be good.  

I used to do this drill, but I changed to making 3-4 foot putts with my right hand only.  Set up to putt with both hands using your normal grip.  Now remove your left hand; place it on your side, and putt with your right hand, keeping the wrist hinge at a constant angle. Don't let the wrist unhinge!  When you can make 6 in a row, add your left hand back on and repeat.  If you pull, your left arm is interfering or you're turning.  Keep repeating the one-handed putts, moving to longer distances as you get better.  I do this before every round I play.  Tiger does this, so it must be good... right?  😀

Great reviews, guys.  I have used a putt out before, I am glad to see that I am not the only one that has been driven mad by the micro target.  That is one challenging little test.   It is very interesting to see that everyone with the grey putting mat is having the same issue.  I wonder if the green mat is doing the same?

The body will turn,  but it looks like it is turning more to the left and Kenny B seems correct about the chicken wing with the left arm.    Almost looks like you try to move the putter straight back with your arms and then pull or push the putter and rotate the shoulders on the forward stroke.  By fixing the chicken wing,  you may even pull the ball more left becuase you cut across and close teh putter more.

I noticed the chicken wing in the GIF too. I will try to one hand putts again I never had luck doing them. I never saw my putting stroke I even slowed it down quite a bit for the GIF. I will take whatever help I can to get better that is why I included it.

If you can putt left hand low, that should help as well.  I tried that grip for 2 weeks and it just didn't work for me; no control of the face.

I never had luck with that grip. The grip I use gives me good control of the face and it works beat for me I've tinkered a lot. I'll have to focus of that elbow and try to get it figured out.

One thing that got me pretty confused was giving the training aid a score. What exactly do you value? The device itself or the benefits they bring on the course?

I based my score on the fact that I got better by using it.  The training aid made me want to practice and kept me focused, practicing deliberately and forcing me out of my comfort zone.  The book Peak by Anders Ericsson does a great job of describing this.

Can you achieve the same results without PuttOUT?  Sure.  But PuttOUT makes it easier.

Easier, yes. At the same time it was frustrating with the groove. If the PuttOut didn't have such quality issues, I would have given it a 90-100 and definitely recommend it.

Yep, the groove in the mat kept me under 90. I recommend the trainer and the mirror, but not the mat.

I'd also be curious if it's more of an issue with the grey mat than the others, especially seeing the pics Cam sent were of the green mats. Anyone have any insight?

Took my PuttOut to the church yesterday afternoon. I wanted to see if I could make a really long perfect putt.

I had three sleeves of balls with me, and @Kirke. We began by alternating shots, and he went first, so I took 4 attempts. Then he did all nine, and I started a set of all nine. On the eighth ball, this happened:

I think my reaction is as much surprise as anything else; I went into this expecting that I probably wouldn't get a perfect on video, just because it's so challenging.

That's a great video and both of your reactions were priceless. That carpet looked fast and it didn't look like the ball was going to make it. Was that the Cleveland putter with the homemade shaft?

This one was with the Odyssey EXO Indianapolis with the homemade shaft. I like the Cleveland a lot, even more with the shaft change, but the EXO beat all comers in my putter challenge and is my go-to stick for the near future.

Got the PuttOut and practice mat for Christmas! I'll check back later when I wear the groove into the mat. Spent about 45 minutes practicing that afternoon and only missed the cup once. First time through I averaged 4-5 putts from each distance before making a perfect putt. (You guys didn't say the perfect putt was much harder from the longer ranges 😜)

Hey testers,  I currently use my putt out on just the carpet (not really good) or on my old skilz putter matt (I just set it up before the ramp to the hole on that).  Since you all seemed to run into some issued with the put out mat, is there anything you guys have tried to recommend as a better solution?

Thanks!
