Here are some of the top-rated and most popular putter aids on the market right now that just might help you putt with more confidence:
Genuine EyeLine Golf Putting Alignment Mirror
The Putting Alignment Mirror is a great way for a golfers to improve their ball roll and develop a more consistent putting stroke.
The Pelz Golf DP4013 Putting Track
This may look like a piece of scalextric track, but it's the piece of kit for you if you're looking to develop a text-book putting stroke. Put your putter on the track and guide it back and forth, rinse and repeat for a more stable swing.
PuttOut Pressure Putt Trainer
One of the wackier putting-aid designs we've come across, but it gets results! It's got a pretty innovative design that ensures that, if you miss the putt, the ball is returned to you the distance that it would have rolled past by - simulating those frustrating on course repercussions of a wayward attempt.
The TPK Golf Training Aid Putting Stick
If you have trouble with shorter, nerve-jangling putts then this is what you need. Popular amongst a number of the Pros on tour, the TPK Golf Training Aid Putting Stick is going to help with alignment and swing path as you try to get the ball to 'tight-rope' it's way along the stick.
The Putter Wheel Golf Trainer
Another stroke/ alignment trainer, but this one is brilliantly portable and requires no assembly at all. Simply put the wheel down, and make your putting stroke. If you're strike angle is off even slightly the wheel will veer to one side or the other.
