• Putting the SX1 Point-N-Putt Putter to the Test

February 26, 2019

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.

In the April edition of Inside Golf magazine (available nationwide) we ran a feature that goes into a little more detail regarding the above story, as well as features some player reviews. You can view the piece below:

Top Tips for a Better Mental Game

July 12, 2017

Most players think a good mental game is something you either have or you don’t. This is a common mistake, you wouldn’t say the same thing about having a six pack or being able to speak a foreign language, as you know that is not true. Yet having a six pack and speaking a second language require taking action and commitment.

Rake sand wedge

Bought this for my wife. Once we learned to use it the results were a marked improvement over the conventional wedge. It doesn't have long distance but it does get good elevation and gets the ball out cleanly.

Great putter. Finding my putting has become much more consistent, especially on long puts.

Lob Wedge/ 3 wedge package

Since purchasing and using the 60 degree Rake Lob wedge, I have improved my short game around the greens and overall scores. It has given me confidence in playing through the ball that was previously lacking.

Having tried the other wedges (Sand and Gap), I was not overly comfortable with either. Although the wedges were fine, I was unable to come to grips with them sufficiently, over several rounds.

I have called PnP with my concerns and after very helpful advice and feedback, I have returned the two clubs, keeping the Lob wedge. The service they have provided throughout has been excellent and returning the clubs was easy and promptly organised.

I would have easily given 5 stars for the prompt delivery, Lob wedge and return procedure. Unfortunately, these clubs do not suit everybody and only one out of the three has been great for me. I also did not receive the divot tool, as promised online, which was a shame.

Overall I think anyone thinking of trying PnP products should not hesitate to do so, as you can easily return them within 30 days of purchase. Hopefully, most will not need to!

Thank you once again and I look forward to many more rounds with my Rake Lob wedge.

Kind Regards,

Alan

Alan, thank you for your great feedback. I'm sorry the sand and gap wedges didn't work out for you, but I am glad that the lob is giving you confidence and helping your game! As for the missing divot tool, keep an eye on your mailbox! ;) My apologies for the slip. If you ever need anything further please don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
51 wedge

I’ve only used it a few times in two games but first shot was a 56 meter nearly in for a eagle ,and a 30 metre bunker shot 6 feet to save par , it won’t be leaving my bag in a hurry love it ,thanks

Putter review

Had 2 social rounds on my own then first comp had 39 points and won so I have to give the putting most of the credit for that. Very happy with it . Nicely balanced and love the weight.
