You’ve probably seen lots of professionals straddling their putting line to feel the slope of the green, then holding up their fingers to find a target to aim their putt at. Well, we’ve helped simplify things a bit with our new Tour Degree Marker. Each color coded line that moves progressively away from the white center line is another degree of aim in your read. Be like a pro, and try it out!

Here’s how to line up your putt with The Mint Alignment Ball Marker. Mark your ball, position the center line toward the hole, then read your putt and place your ball on one of the 7 lines on your ball marker.
Do I use both of the metal pieces at the same time? I don’t get it.
Nope. There are two different sizes for different levels of difficulty. L = Large (the easier of the two) and S = Small (the more difficult of the two). Pick the one that you want to work with and place it in the dead center of your putter’s club face and focus on center contact.
Those little adhesive discs… where do I get more?
You can buy some some extras right here (coming soon), or just use some good old fashioned grip tape.
It may seem funky at first… we get it. But, check out this video, and we’ll get you dialed in.
Definitely! Check out this video where our delightful friend, Lauren, talks about some pretty basic ball positions for various clubs.
Also, there are loads of resources out there that have great information on ball position basics… here are a few:
Our kit was designed to fit standard 5/16” alignment sticks. If your sticks are too big or small, you may need to get some new sticks to work with the kit. We have some here, if you want to make certain the ones you purchase will work.
We get it… not everyone sets up perfectly square to their target line. But, practicing with the PPTS will give you the ability to have a known constant when it comes to your stance. Even if you, say, drop your back foot back 2″ from a square toe line, you’ll know that’s exactly what you’re doing when you practice. This is important for consistency.
We get it… everyone has their preferences. The reason we like to mark the entire ball is for two big reasons: 1. If you hit a shot directly on the line, it often smears it or messes up the perfect mark you put on it. When you have an entire ball’s worth of line, you can just rotate the ball a bit and still have a nice big, pure line to putt with. And, 2. It’s nice to be able to get feedback on where the line on your ball is pointing when you stand behind that ball, and having a line that goes all the way around does that.
Just open up the clam and put that fresh golf ball in there. Close it, give it a little squeeze, and then hold the open end together with one hand while you mark the ball with the other. Here’s a video to give you an idea just how to do it.
Think of that wedge/triangle of lines as on an arrowhead; point them toward the hole so that the end where they converge is closer to the hole. Then get your read, look at the marker and decide which line best corresponds with your read, and place the ball on the ground accordingly. Sadly, the marker can’t read the putt for you… so that part is up to you. Go get ’em, Champ.
First, thanks! We’d love to hear what schools you wish we had, so drop us a line here and let us know what you’re looking for.
