A Glimpse back into the History of the SX1 Putter

The other day, Paul Donaghue, the founder and director of PNP Golf came across the below email from back in the very early stages of PNP Golf. It was from Glen Coombe, a renowned US putting guru, author and a certified level 3 SAM PuttLab Instructor regarding the SX1 Point-N-Putt Putter:

To: Paul Donaghue <xxxx@xxxx.com>
Subject: Day One Testing

Paul, I want to let you know that I put 12 golfers through the Point N Putt Aim Study today.

I also want to let you know that I'm pleasantly surprised by the results.
Hands down you have a winner.  Each and every player tested from 2 handicap to 28 showed improved aim ability with the SX1 Point N Putt.

We'll go at it again tomorrow with another group and should be able to start sending reports to you by Monday or Tuesday.

Cheers!

Glen

It's important to note that this initial feedback backed up Paul's theory and research that it was more accurate to point the club face than trying to square it. The key being that for an easier and more definitive focus, the directional pointer is removed from the putter face. This results in the face being 90 degrees to the putting direction.

The above was the first piece of feedback received from an official independent comparative testing of our SX1 Point-N-Putt putter for alignment. This was the ultimate alignment test as it was a comparison by first time users of our putter against their own putters. The final testing included 99 golfers, consisting of 33 from the US, 33 from Sweden, and 33 from Australia. The resulting SAM PuttLab data displayed an average alignment improvement across all 99 players of 16.5 percent.

We encourage you to view the SX1 Point-N-Putt Putter (click here), as we believe it can help just about anyone with their short game. And as a current special (for February and March), we're also giving away a Quik-N-Ezy Golf Bag Rain Guard and our famous Aluminium Divot Repair Tool and Magnetic Ball Marker with the purchase of any single club. Should you purchase two or more clubs you'll also receive a 100% Cabretta Leather Golf Glove and Magnetic Ball Marker free!

We're very happy that most of our sales come from word of mouth. After all there's no better validation that your clubs work than confirmation from players out there using them. And so with that we make the humble request that should you feel inclined, to please spread the word to any of your friends or colleagues who you believe may benefit from the SX1 Point-N-Putt Putter. We would be forever grateful.

P'n'P Lob wedge and Sand wedge review

I have been using my new wedges for the past two and a half weeks and they are so good it's scary! I have already become confident in my use of the clubs because they have got me out of some very awkward situations but all I had to do was trust my swing and the ability of the clubs to do the job. They compliment the other clubs in my bag really well!
Thank you for these two magic assets!

RAKE LOB WEDGE

VERY HAPPY WITH THIS CLUB CHEERS DAVID ISRAEL

Now I can Putt

3 weeks ago I received my PNP putter. I am still getting used to it & need to practice more, but the arrow definitely helps!

Purchase of Rake Gap Wedge

Upon receipt of my Rake Gap Wedge, I was impressed by the look of the club. I liked the white shaft and the design of the wedge.
The wedge weight felt comfortable and looked impressive when placed behind the ball. I felt confident in hitting shots which helped getting the ball closer to the hole. I am now considering replacing my current wedges ((60) and (56) for the PnP wedges.

Site line combo

Having just purchased the combo I tried them in my local comp with no practice at all. The chipper iny first game was used from max distance, 80m out. I was between 2 trees with some canopy hanging down. This was my 3rd shot to a par 5 and it ended up on the green edge. Using the new putter I finished with a par. Not bad for first day. 2 holes later on par 3, 2nd shot was just off the back of the green and with my now trusty new putter it went in
from about 6 metres for par. I have played 3 rounds since and I don't know how I got along without them. Extremely happy with my purchase and have since last thu I parted the first 4 holes of my local course and came 3rd in the daily comp with net 3 under par/HCP 23. Great gear. Many thanks. Gordon Cox.
