I think it's working...

Great!! I know it's unquestionably working for me, after all that winter practice with it .. my distance / speed control is hugely improved vs last year, and prior seasons. 

Have a better feel, and am more confident with, long putts; am getting more of them .. and most mid-range putts .. closer and closer.

Still have the occasional 3-putt, tho!

Had some fun with the ExPutt today .. during the washed-out Memorial Day weekend ...

Interestingly, as I was rolling some putts in Practice mode (Random 5 to 20 feet) I was leaving a lot of balls short of the hole; typically my main miss on length is past the hole. Minor light bulb moment: changed the green speed from 10 to 11 .. and more putts ended up much closer to the hole (short or long), and a few more dropped. So I guess the ExPutt 11 is closer to the actual speed of the greens I've been playing more often this year!

In Challenge mode (3 tries from each of 3 different positions on each green to hole out or leave the ball within 3 ft.; Spring course, speed 11) I was rolling a lot of the first putts well and within 3 feet; the majority were at or within 5 ft and just a few were 6 - 7 feet away.

Then in Play mode (putt until you hole out on each of 9 greens; Spring course, speed 11) most of my first putt leaves were in the 2 - 4 ft range, with 2 or 3 left at 5 ft. I did manage 3 x 3-putt bogeys by leaving 2 of those shorter second putts literally hanging on the edge of the hole, while the third 3-putt (forgot the start distance) I ran the second putt about a foot and a half past the hole. 

So overall, while no course records were shattered, this was a lot more consistent putting .. both speed and line .. vs last Summer when we first started testing these units 👍

Watching tennis at the Tokyo olympics, and now I know where the insect sounds in the ExPutt background noise come from!

Ha that's funny! I believe the developers are in South Korea but maybe they have the same bugs 🤣🤣

My SG: Putting numbers on Shot Scope show that I am losing strokes everywhere from 0-30ft after not spending much time practicing which culminated in a nausea-inducing 40 putts with 0x 1 putts last time out. My short game also needs work, but that is a story for a different thread. 

Made up a game on the Exputt in practice using 5-30 footers. First, I have to make 3/4 from 5, 10, 20 and 30 feet during 1 cycle through the distances. Next, I have to leave all 4 putts within 10% of starting distance (makes count). 

First night it took me 56 putts, second night 20 putts after tidying up my grip... Great bit of kit.

Great practice challenge game! I do like that they included a ladder drill, but it would be nice if there were a few more options - eg. 5 foot intervals. Plus I'd like to see a Reverse Ladder drill available for Practice mode.

You can still do those drills.   I set the hole past where I want to work and roll putts at whatever increment I want.   I use the face angle and distance to do my checks.  Basically enable you to do most any drill you want.

Expanded the game above to 40 and 50 footers after getting down to 16 putts when working up to 30'. Took 66 putts on the first attempt up to 50'. Then added a Play 9 session where I have to shoot par or better to work on random distances and estimating effect from upslope and downslope... Must have took an hour (on Summer) and was quite frustrated by the end. But I clearly need to sharpen up my distance control as confirmed by 4x 3 putts on Friday, so the frustration was well deserved. 

This was my routine to start the season when I was down around 32-33 putts per round which has crept up to 36 range recently. Going to get back at it a few times a week and see if that get my putting closer to a 5 HCP than a 15...

One week on the Exputt leads to a 31 putt round with 10 GIR gaining over 1 stroke versus scratch. 
 

Also had a birdie lip out and left another 2” short. Can’t say enough about this system and making practicing engaging.

An exciting update,  Heard from the owners over the weekend, they will be launching  the next generation Ex Putt in the next couple months and will be interested in doing another forum testing! 

Stay Tuned, Details to Come

This is a great product to do winter time tests!

That sounds great! I'm looking forward to finding out how much better the next version is, and .. 😉 .. how much of our user feedback they've Incorporated into it.

Looks like the new version is out in the wild!

The mat looks the same, but that camera has a different shape to it. Biggest software change seems to be the addition of a tempo tracker of some kind (bottom right of the interface). Will be interested to see all the changes when more details are released!
