"The Visio Putting Gates"

Visio Putting Gates are simple and easy to use devices that give you feedback on your ability to hit your starting line.

The Visio gates come in 2 sizes (55m and 50mm) which when placed at specific distances from the ball, on your chosen target line, will create a specific angle of error that you will need to achieve in order to successfully putt the ball through the gate.

General Gate

50 mm @ 17 inches requires 0.5 degree of error or less
50mm @ 11 inches requires less than 0.75 degree of error

55mm @ at 14 inches requires less than 1 degree of error
55mm @ 19 inches requires 0.75 degree of error or less

Practicing with the gates on your chosen line is an interesting challenge of your ability to start the ball on a specific line when you consider at 10 ft 1 degree of error would be lined up to the edge of the hole, while at 20ft 0.5 degree of error would also be lined up to the edge of the hole.

Therefore on a straight 10 foot putt you will need to develop accuracy of less than 1 degree of error in your starting line to be successful, or at 20ft less than 0.5 degree

Training with both the 55mm and 50mm at different distances will give you feedback on the club face angle and quality of strike at impact and as a consequence will help train your ability to start the ball successfully on your line and improve the accuracy of your putts on the golf course.
