Visual Diagnostic Test

 

Which Alignment Guide is right for you?

(Please note: It is helpful to have two people for test)

STEP 1:    Color vs. black and white?

Choose (1) color guide plus the black and white guide pictured here:

or

plus

Insert the black and white alignment guide in your Eye Align putter. (No need to replace and tighten the set screw as you’ll be changing guides frequently.) Now you’re ready to line up a putt. Choose a smooth, flat area of the practice green. Pick a target approximately 12 feet away. Use a tee or a quarter as your target (make sure your target is smaller than the hole). Line up your putter so that you are aimed straight at your target.

Maintaining your putter in position, use a tee to mark the direction you are pointing. You may have to gently press the tee into the grass so that it stays put. Remove your putter without disturbing the tee. Position yourself 5-6 feet behind the head of the tee and see if the line to your target is accurate.

Now insert one of the color alignment guides and repeat the tee test as before: pick a target, line up your putter and use a tee to mark your line. It’s a good idea to change the location of the target each time to keep yourself from “cheating.” Again position yourself 5-6 feet behind the head of the tee and see if the line to your target is accurate.

Was your line better with black and white or with color? If black and white, continue with Step 2 below. If color, skip to Step 5.

STEP 2:    Black and white preference (lines vs. shapes)?

Choose the alignment guides pictured here:

 

 

     

 

The following steps are exactly the same as the steps you took in Step 1, but they use different alignment guides to dial in your visual preference. Insert each of the alignment guides pictured above (one at a time) in your Eye Align putter and repeat the tee test. Remember, it’s a good idea to change the position of the target with each test. Line up to the target and use a tee to mark your line. Again position yourself 5-6 feet behind the head of the tee and see if the line to your target is accurate.

 

This step will tell you whether you see lines better or shapes better. If lines, continue to Step 3. If shapes, skip to Step 4.

STEP 3:    Thick lines or thin lines?

Choose the alignment guides pictured here:

     

Repeat the tee test with these alignment guides to determine whether you prefer thick lines, thin lines or multiple lines. Once you find the one you line up best, you’re good to go. Just insert guide and tighten set screw.

STEP 4:    Which shape?

Choose the alignment guides pictured here:

 

 

 

 

 

             

Repeat the tee test with the alignment guides pictured here to determine which shape best matches your visual preference. Once again, when you find the one you line up best with, the test is complete. Just insert guide and tighten set screw.

STEP 5:    Color lines vs. shapes

Choose the alignment guides pictured here:

Follow the same steps you followed in Step 1, but use the color guides pictured above to determine your preference for color lines or shapes.

 

Insert each of the alignment guides (one at a time) in your Eye Align putter and repeat the tee test. (Remember to change the position of the target with each test.) Line up to the target and use a tee to mark your line. Again position yourself 5-6 feet behind the head of the tee and see if the line to your target is accurate.

 

If the color shape gives you a more accurate line, skip to Step 7. If your accuracy is better with color lines, continue to Step 6.

STEP 6:    Thin color lines or thick color lines?

Choose the alignment guides pictured here:

Repeat the tee test with these alignment guides to determine whether you prefer thick lines, thin lines or multiple lines. Once you find the one that best matches your visual preference, you’re all done. The test is over. Just insert guide and tighten set screw.

STEP 7:    Which shape?

Choose the alignment guides pictured here:

Repeat the tee test with the alignment guides pictured here to determine which shape best matches your visual preference. Once again, when you find the one you line up best with, the test is complete. Just insert guide and tighten set screw.
