The Proof is in the Pudding

GOLF Magazine Techy Award 001One of our newest distributors, Richard, is a 3-handicapper from Riverside County, California.  Richard was originally skeptical about our claims that our putter reduces the break in putts.  So, before coming on board as a distributor, he ordered his own PROBE 20/10 at our website.  When he received his putter, Richard went out on his local par-72 course and shot 68, making five birdies!

Excited, Richard called me in our offices and said, “Pete, the way your putter reduces the break takes all the guesswork out of putts from 3 to 8 feet long.  You automatically increase your ‘makes’ versus ‘misses’.  Every golfer will understand that, because the less a putt breaks, the easier it is to make it.”

Richard is completely correct about the PROBE putter.  It does all of those things.  Simply playing the ball off the toe or the heel generates spin, which reduces in the break in a putt.  This simple innovation is what makes the PROBE putter so revolutionary.

However, Richard is not correct in assuming that every golfer will automatically understand what’s at stake here.  You’d be surprised how often I am asked the following question:  “Don’t you still have to read the break in order to decide whether or not to impart spin with the Probe?”

The answer is “no.”  The Probe putter dramatically reduces the guesswork involved in reading a putt.  Allow me to explain:

You see, with a conventional putter, it’s not just a matter of determining whether or not a putt breaks.  You have to guess how far outside of the hole to aim.  If you guess slightly wrong, even on a short putt, the ball can roll behind or in front of the hole.  This often leaves you with an even longer putt coming back.  This is precisely why the short game can make or break an otherwise good golfer.

Now, let’s compare this process to putting with the Probe in your bag.  You’re faced with the same putt.  You can tell, of course, that the putt breaks left to right.  That judgment, after all, is the no brainer part of reading the putt.  But, now, instead of having to guess exactly how far outside of the hole to aim, you simply play the ball off the heel of the putter and aim inside  the left edge of the hole.  As long as you reach the hole, you make the putt!    You’re better off than you would be with a conventional putter.

The Probe 20/10 really is a revolutionary improvement in golf.  After decades of gimmicks and exaggerated advertising rhetoric, golfers really have an opportunity to take their game to a whole other level.  Still, as is always the case when a game changing new technology comes on the scene, not everyone will immediately understand what’s at stake.  No doubt, some people are too set in their ways to welcome a change, even a hugely positive one that will improve their game dramatically.  No doubt, to some people, thinking this way about putting is just too far outside of their paradigm.  However, those golfers who do understand it and give it a try will see the results.

As the old saying goes, the proof is in the pudding.  Well, in this metaphor, the pudding is a better short game and a lower score.  Golf Magazine tested the putter, and they saw the results.  This is why the PROBE 20/10 is the only putter to be included in the magazine’s list of “technologically advanced golf equipment.”  Thousands of golfers have tried the putter and gotten the same results.

Better short game.  Lower scores.  That’s not theoretical.  That’s reality.
