• 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:

From: Glen Coombe <xxxx@xxxx.net>

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.

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.

PnP sand wedge

A great SW which gives me confidence in getting the club through the sand with its slightly weighted club head.
It took 2 games to get used to it, and now has replaced my Ping SW.
Great product and excellent and prompt delivery from the PnP team Thankyou

Novel design which should guide the face on the correct path.

Happy!

Hi Paul

Happy with the Rake lobby, though it takes some time to get used to how easily it gets through grass, and how to judge distance.

Great off tight lies but you have to be careful off fluffy lies or you will just flip it way too short.

Once you get the hang of it, it's a weapon for those high soft stopping shots to a flag.

Keep up the good work.
