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 draw a line over the the OEM's alignment aid using a marking tool.

Either a Titleist ProV1 or a Bridgestone e6 marked with a single black dot over the left side of the manufacturer's trademark.

Hi All, This is my first post and MGS testing entry. I've been a avid reader of the reviews and forums.

1. San Francisco and No-HC (Total novice)
2. Just started putting and experimenting with alignment (tracking all my data)
3. Pro V1 Yellow and "METHODGOLF"

I think would be a good addition since I'm tracking all my putting practice on Blastmotion and currently A/B testing ball alignment.

Currently I use a red sharpie and a tracing tool for a 360 degree line around the ball.

Titleist ProV1x

Black line with “CW”

Thanks! I’ve stopped using a sharpie as the line starts to get affected by iron shots. This is a great offering.

I didn't even know that you could order balls this way. But a line with PRESS in the middle, perfect!

Some golfers use tracing devices while others opt for the free-hand Sharpie method. Additionally, on pretty much every tour-level ball, the side stamp doubles as an alignment aid. Some companies (namely Callaway) have taken the conversation a step further with advancements such as Triple-Track Technology.

Given all of this as the context within the ball industry, Golfballs.com spawned the idea of Align XL.

Simply, it's a custom print option that places a straight line 180° around the ball.

The result seems rather basic, but drawing a straight line on a curved surface is a bit more complex than one might think. With that, Golfballs.com developed in-house technology to maintain certain levels of quality control and fast turn-around times on all custom orders.

Interested in doing the testing.  I do align most puts and mainly believe in it, also practice 6 foot puts (pre- pandemic) with left ,right and both hands to develop 6 in confidence.   In the past year have used the manufacturer markings that agree could be better.   

  1. Location and HC - Colorado and 4 HC 
  2. Current line method - get low to read green and set up ball in alignment.   
  3. Ball choice and personalization -   Srizon Z-star XV and initial JK 

Thank you for setting this up, would be fun , very curios if better alignment leads to fewer strokes.
