I would like to welcome one of my fellow teaching professionals, Nancy Harvey to Guru TV. She is an outstanding teacher and coach and I am fortunate to be able to teach with her every day. I promised all of you, teachers and students some feedback on my new training aid, “The Kure”. I have given about 5 lessons using the aid from 2 tour players (who both loved it), to a wide range of students. I start my lesson by watching the student roll a few putts with the naked eye and make my initial assumptions on aim, set up and stroke mechanics. I proceed into the video room and put them on the camera where I share with them what I like and don’t like. I make the necessary adjustments to their setup and stroke and then introduce the Kure indoors first until they can aim effectively and hit some solid putts. Then I take them outside to finish the lesson so they can see the feedback and make some putts. Here is some excellent feedback given by a student that I worked with today……………………….
Roger’s Comments: Had the opportunity to spend an hour with Jason this afternoon trying out The Kure. At first glance it resembles the floor safety sensors for your standard automatic garage door and opener, just shrunken down a bit. One sensor for your putter and the other over your line or the cup. Line ‘em up and a yellow light pops on. Make a good stroke all the way through and a green light comes on. Who doesn’t love immediate feedback? I was literally sinking putt after putt while using this thing. I saw only 2 very minor issues with the tool, both very subjective; 1) I have a ping anser series putter. Its pretty light compared to some of the hardware I see people pull out on the greens these days. I felt it added a little too much weight to my club. I could see it being barely noticeable, if at all, with one of the heavier, say, odyssey 2 ball putters or a belly putter, but would like to see it refined to a smaller, lighter version. 2) I caught myself wanting to look to the hole as I was putting rather than keep my head down. I was searching for the green indicator that signaled a good stroke. Jason made a great suggestion that they add sound to the device in addition to the indicator lights. Or I could just keep my head down….. This is a great training aid. And for the lefties out there….I’m a lefty! Works equally well on both sides of the ball. Coupling this great tool with a great instructor like Jason WILL make you dangerous on the greens.
Now that is great, honest feedback! Thanks for the comment, Roger.
