EEZ-READ® winner of the prestigious PGA Merchandise Show Best New Product was designed to build putting confidence and shave strokes off every golfer's game.

"Using the EEZ-READ® is the simplest way to sink more putts," says Butch Harmon, the renowned instructor.

The EEZ-READ® (pronounced Easy Read) is a high accuracy "bubble level" attached to a watchmaker's grade stainless steel disc that's sturdy enough to provide a quick reading of the green's contours, yet lightweight enough

to carry in your pocket during play. It is intended to help golfers on putts with subtle or confusing breaks and works best on putts within 20 feet of the hole.

Founder of the EEZ-READ®, Robin Austin, a marketing innovator for blue chip Fortune 500 companies, had the benefit of his Connecticut Golf Pro teaching him a better way to putt. Out of this improvement in his putting game came the birth of the EEZ-READ®.

"I was fascinated to learn that the Pros and their caddies take great pains to understand

the breaks in the greens during their practice rounds prior to competition play," said Austin.

"They use all sorts of technology. One Pro actually had used a construction level on the greens, and that started me thinking of how to improve upon that concept," he added.

"Making a good putt is one of the most enjoyable and memorable aspects of golf, and the EEZ-READ® putting aid helps to build those positive memories," Austin said.

Club professionals everywhere support the use of EEZ-READ®
A sample of the EEZ READ practice putting aid was sent to 600 of the Club's members for testing and received an approval rating of 68% and an average rating of 7.3 on a 10 point scale. "We are thrilled the members of the PGA TOUR Partners Club gave the EEZ-READ golf putting aid their Seal of Approval", said Robin Austin, President and Founder of EEZ-READ. "The feedback we received on our product was tremendous and proved that the EEZ-READ will help golfers read the green and shave strokes off their game".

Line up your putt and imagine the break line.
Place the EEZ-READ® on the line halfway between your ball and the hole to determine the overall break.
Then place the EEZ-READ® on the same line within six inches of the hole to see if that break continues through to the hole.

If the bubble in the EEZ-READ® is at the 12 o'clock position then it's an uphill putt; at the six o'clock position it's a downhill putt; at the nine o'clock position the putt will break from left to right and at three o'clock it will break from right to left. If the bubble rests between two readings then the putt is a combination of the two.

After just a few holes, golfers will learn to rely on EEZ-READ® to read their putts and build confidence in their putting. Using EEZ-READ® will also speed up play as players spend less time circling the hole or crouching behind their ball to read their line.

    • Ball position. It changes in your golf swing, but should not change regardless of the putt. With the best putting stroke you are trying to roll the ball over a certain line, and by putting it too far back the tendency will be to "skip" the ball. By putting it too far forward you will likely "pop" the ball. Ideally the ball should be positioned under the front eye when in your stance.
    • Golf club grip. Normally with all of your golf clubs besides the putter the grip will be more with the fingers. The putter grip will be positioned more across the palm of the hands. (Here of course we are talking about the normal putting action used in the traditional putt). The difference is to take more of the wrist action out of the putting stroke.
    • Body movement. During the golf stroke you want as little movement as possible, but obviously with the necessary weight shift there has to be some movement. During the putting stroke you don't want any movement, and it is quite difficult to remain completely still. Putt in front of a full length mirror and watch yourself. You will probably move more than you think.
    • Golf psychology. The mental aspect of the game takes on a greater importance in putting. There are probably a few reasons for this, perhaps because it is the last shot on a hole, and therefore no chance to recover. Or maybe because we lack confidence over the putt because we haven't practiced it enough.
    To gain confidence at anything, one must experience success and store it so it comes out when we need it. When we first started to drive a car, we were nervous, unsure and apprehensive. We really did not have much confidence at driving. After we gained experience at driving, backing up, parking, our confidence allowed us to perform and execute with pout fear.
    The same can be said for putting. When touring professionals have a 10-foot putt, they are almost positive that they will make it. So how do we learn to be confident?
    A great way to build confidence is to experience success on the putting green, and the EEZ-READ can help here too. Place four balls around a hole at only one foot from the cup. Go through your routine and setup to the putt and stroke it into the hole. Keep doing this drill over and over and do not get careless. Learn the feeling of a well-struck putt and let the sound of the ball dropping into the hole become music to your ears. Smile a little as you continue to make putt after putt.
    Now, you might say that anyone can make one-foot putts, but there is something more to this practice that you will have gained. If you can start every putt on your line for the first one foot, your putting success will soar. When you set up to a 20-foot putt on the course, get your line and set yourself to make that first foot of the putt dead online.
    Some people have a great ability to visualize while others just cannot do it with much success. It is an aptitude or talent that some have and some do not as in musical ability. So when great putters say they can see the ball going in, how can you do this?
    One thing that we are all blessed with is something called delayed retina imaging. Simply put, if you look at an object and then close your eyes, you will still be able to "see" the object. Try it out right now.
    On the putting green, line up your putt and then either look at the breaking point of the putt or the cup and return your eyes to the ball. Hold the picture of the spot (point or cup) in your mind. Now you have a target even though you are not really looking at it.
    Stroke the ball without undue delay while holding the picture in your mind. You will be surprised at how many you will make. Basketball players often do this when throwing up a 3-pointer although they may not be aware of it. When you are doing your one-foot drill, use this technique on every putt and you will own it.
