To use a line or not to use a line? That is the question. It's not exactly Shakespeare, but when lining up a putt, it's a question I'll bet you've asked your self more than once. Some golfe

I've used alignment aids off and on.  Currently "on", as it likely doesn't hurt.  I'd use this opportunity to conduct a "designed experiment" using a statistically significant number of putts both with and without the alignment aid, and look at the difference in performance.  Probably do it on both straight and breaking putts and from two different lengths.  The theory is that it becomes more beneficial on longer putts, as shorter ones don't require the alignment precision of longer ones.  Probably need to estimate directional variation from the hole rather than simply counting "makes and misses" to get away from the attribute nature of that data and provide a better view into directional capability, as opposed to leaving a putt short and counting it as a miss even though direction was good (which all the alignment aid can help).

Current handicap is 12.

Location is Phoenix AZ area.

Current line method is a Sharpie line or an existing ball feature (logo, factory supplied alignment aid, etc.).

Ball choice would be ProV1x

Personalization would be "Hitnhunt".

Okay....I'll give it a try.  I play at least two rounds a week and while I generally have used the Callaway triple track, I don't see that it's of all that much value.

Hey, why don’t you guys ever take some testers from Canada? We like golf up here too you know. In fact I personally like putting with a line and practice 12 months a year, although most of the time indoors. Give us a shot we won’t disappoint.

Hcp 12

I use a putting line, but instead of pointing the line down the target line, I turn it 90 degrees so that it is perpendicular to the target line, and the putter face is parallel to the putting line.

Either use the side stamp or manually draw blue Sharpie through to extend the side stamp.
