The Putting Arc

Putting Arc deluxeThe Putting Arc design resulted from PGA Professional VJ Trolio’s vision of the perfect putting stroke, the mathematical theories researched and applied by engineer Joey Hamilton, and the manufacturing expertise of engineer-inventor Dave Hamilton.

The Putting Arc Works Because…

1. It's based upon natural body movement which can be quickly learned and repeated. Results can be seen in several days … Thousands of repetitions are not required to show a marked improvement.

2. The clubhead travels in a perfect circle (radius R) and the projection of this circle on the ground is an ellipse in the shape of the Putting Arc.

3. The putter is always ‘on plane’ (the sweet-spot/spinal pivot plane). The intersection of this plane with the ground is a straight line, the ball/target line.

4. The club face is always square to the above plane. It is only square to the ball target line at the center line of the Putting Arc. You are learning an inside-to-square-to-inside putting stroke.

5. In this perfect putting stroke, there is only one moving part. The hands, arms and shoulders rotate as one unit. No manipulation of the hands or arms is required to follow the correct path with a correct clubface. It happens automatically.

There are only two ways for the putter to travel straight back and straight through:

1. The spinal axis of rotation must be horizontal.


2. You must manipulate the club face and club path during the stroke.

The first is uncomfortable and hard on your back while the second is unnatural, requires many moving parts, and is difficult to repeat consistently. The Putting Arc can cure the bad habits you have formed trying to make the putter go straight back and straight through.

How to use Putting ArcThe modern putting stroke of the successful touring pro is the inside-to-inside or arc type stroke. This is the stroke used by 95% of the successful touring pros, and taught by the top putting instructors in the country. However, 95% of the amateurs still try to putt straight back and straight through. With the Putting Arc, you too can learn to putt like the pros ACTUALLY putt.

In 5 years, the patented Putting Arc has been used without compensation by over 680 touring pros with over 400 professional wins worldwide.
