The PuttBANDIT story

Dreams of putting glory
For two brothers, with many prime golfing years behind us, sinking the putt that wins the Open or Ryder Cup, is an extremely remote possibility. But that doesn’t mean we’re not ambitious when it comes to golf.

How can we improve our golf?
One day, over a post-round libation, we were talking about our occasionally dreadful putting and that the average golfer takes more strokes with a putter than any other club in the bag. We were certainly proving that point. It was clear that improving our putting could have a big impact on our scores.

Research and Development
We concluded that improving our putt line targeting and accurately aligning to our chosen point, was where we needed to be. After many months of research - reviewing products and techniques – analysing and testing multiple prototypes – we came up with the PuttBANDIT.

Results?
Using a PuttBANDIT prototype, we both saw our putting become more reliable - three putts were much rarer, two putts became the norm and one putts happened a little more often. Our handicap indexes started to fall. So if the PuttBANDIT was helping us, it could work for other golfers too. Now all we had to do was get the R&A to examine it and then work out how to manufacture them. Something that sounds a lot easier than it really is!

From idea to reality
After climbing up and falling off many steep learning curves with regard to equipment rules, CAD, injection moulding, materials, 3D printing, CNC laser cutting, intellectual property and much more, PuttBANDIT ball markers are now available to golfers who want to improve their putting performance.

We wish you good putting.

I think I have the yips – Episode #1

Last month I wrote about the one-foot putt that separated Ashleigh Buhai from her first career and major win at the AIG Women’s Open. She sank it with style. If it were me, on my recent performance, I would have missed it, and the next one. I’m not confident about...
