The EEZ-READ Golf Putting Aid

Golfers know that the secret to scoring well is a combination of many factors; one of which is putting. The proverbial golf adage: drive for show, putt for dough is oh so true.

How many times have you had that remarkable round with your woods and irons—hitting them with a “ping” so pure—reached almost every green in regulation, yet still shot 10 or more over par? Or worse? The difference is putting and all its multi-faceted frustrations. Golf training equipment, and in particular, golf putting aids have been big business for years. Why? Because so many golfers have an insatiable appetite for lower scores. It’s a sickness really. If only there was a pill! Luckily, however, there is.

Sort of...

After doing research for a recent project, I came across a golf putting aid so ingenious in design, so practical in its use, and so highly endorsed by one of golf’s preeminent golf instructors, Butch Harmon, I just had to share it with you all. The product is the EEZ-Read green-reading putting aid. Allow me a few minutes to explain its beauty and I’m sure you, too, will be asking yourself: “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Yes. It’s that cool!

How The EEZ-READ Golf Putting Aid Works

The EEZ-Read works like a level.

See, I told you it was simple.

One of the biggest problems many weekend, amateur, and even some professional golfers have with putting is seeing the break of the green and then putting the appropriate stroke on the ball. What makes the EEZ-READ so ingenious is that it not only tells you where the break(s) is(are), it also lets you know whether the putt is uphill or downhill. Once you have that information, hitting your putt with the proper line and speed is much, much easier.

To assure better accuracy, the EEZ-READ green reader is placed on the green two times: First, halfway between your ball and the cup; and second, within 6" of the cup. By doing so, you gain the overall break of the putt, the slope, and finally, its closing break. With practice, you'll soon be reading greens like a theory; and making more than your fair share of putts. And we all know that making more putts leads to lower scores!

How to Read the EEZ-READ

As I said earlier, the EEZ-READ is basically a level. The primary difference, however, is that the leveling bubble is in the center surrounded by 4 markers; sort of like the primary hands of a clock. This nifty golf putting aid is housed in a stainless steel housing similar to a watch casing and easily fits in your golf bag or pocket.

In other words, it's small, portable, yet performs like a pro!

Getting an accurate read is as simple as placing it on the green between your ball and the hole and seeing where the bubble rests. The primary options are as follows:

  • 12:00: Uphill
  • 3:00: Breaks Left
  • 6:00: Downhill
  • 9:00: Breaks Right
  • In between 12:00 - 3:00: Uphill, Breaks Left
  • In Between 3:00 - 6:00: Downhill, Breaks Left
  • In Between 6:00 - 9:00: Uphill, Breaks Right
  • In Between 9:00 - 12:00: Downhill, Breaks Right
  • In the Center: No Break :)

Pretty simple, right? I think so. Which is why I'll be getting one of these bad boys soon. I suggest you do the same!

Lower scores and handicaps await!
