The Putting Arc is one of the most proven putting aids. In 5 years, the patented Putting Arc has been used without compensation by over 680 touring pros with over 400 professional wins worldwide. Now for the first time ever, these two world class putting devices are packaged togehter, making it perfect indoor putting practice.
There are a few options with the putting arc. The new toe guided MS-D3 model includes a putting mirror for shoulder alignment.

- Adjustable high impact shoulder alignment mirror
- New Toe Arc
- Traditional Heel Arc
- 33 inches long, less than 3 pound
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor practice
The Putting Arc Works Because…
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 automatic
There are only two ways for the putter to travel straight back and straight through:
- The spinal axis of rotation must be horizontal.
- 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.
The 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.
The Putting Arc … is an Ellipse
The Putting Arc works because it guides the putter head in pure planar rotation about an axis which passes through the golfer’s spine, at the T3 vertebrae between the shoulders (the dashed line in fig. 1).
This means that the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders all stay connected throughout the putting stroke. The Putting Arc has radial lines on its top. This important feature shows the correct clubface alignment at each point in the stroke. This alignment is just as important as the clubhead path
Mathematically speaking the putter head actually moves in a perfect circle.
But since the axis of rotation is inclined relative to the putting surface the putter head motion projects onto putting surface as an ellipse. (Teaching pros if you don’t believe us, contact us about ‘Iron Archie’, a robot demonstrator/teaching aid that proves
The Putting Arc concept). This ellipse (the light colored shape in fig. 2) is the mathematical basis for The Putting Arc.
The actual dimensions of The Putting Arc ellipse are defined by the location of the center of rotation of the putter head. (This point is located on the golfers spine at the T3 vertebrae.) Suprisingly, the dimensions of The Putting Arc ellipse are similar for all average size golfers. There are only a few thousandths of an inch difference in ideal shape of The Putting Arc for a 5’4″ golfer and a 6’2″ golfer (assuming a typical putting stance). For golfers with unconventional stances or people who simply want an ideal match we can generate a custom Putting Arc. The custom Putting Arc will come precisely shaped to your dimensions along with a CAD plot showing the variation from the standard arc.
