McHenry, IL (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
The latest craze on the golfing scene, The Putting Game, is the brainchild of two creative Chicagoland men with a love for golf. The Putting Game is a new system that provides fun and excitement as well as precision to a golfer's putting. Both of the inventors have a passion for the game, strive for excellence, and now believe they can help golfers around the world improve their putting skills and have a great time doing so.
One if the inventors, Harry Nicodem, is the CEO of the successful Chicagoland company, TonerHead, Inc. Tonerhead uses the latest in technological advancements available to produce the best possible results in product and services to the end consumer. Fueled by a passion for the game, the desire to improve skill and technique, and unique new concepts from the inventors, TonerHead's talented staff of mechanical, electrical, and software engineers transferred this philosophy into the creation of The Putting Game. The games and skill challenges allow golf enthusiasts the opportunity to practice up to a 32 foot putt at the office or at home.
Offering numerous games and putting challenges, The Putting Game is designed to be used indoors on a carpeted floor. It offers a unique "virtual cup", not a physical cup, which allows players to select how long of a putt to play. The game features Stimp-Aware technology, which provides feedback on putt distance and also allows players to select how fast the greens are. After the putt, the game then displays how far the player hit the ball, and if the player would have made the putt.
Additional features of the unit include a speedometer style gauge, which displays putt duration and distance, an unique bounce-beam design which returns the balls to the player, a horizontal LED screen which visually indicates the direction of each putt, convenient foot switches for game selection and reset, and audio speakers which rewards players with a ball in cup sound when the putt is made and a bit of friendly heckling when players miss. The unit is made of durable twelve pound steel and aluminum.
"The Putting Game is a game and a powerful training aid; it is two products in one! Golfers who use The Putting Game as a training aid find it quite entertaining and actually practice more often because of the games. Non-golfers who are only interested in playing the games for entertainment find they are actually learning to putt pretty well. It's new, exciting and practical; people of all ages love using it and use it for many different reasons." said Fred Knecht, Director of Sales and Marketing.
The system's most popular game is Game "500", an accuracy challenge where golfers must putt as close to the center target as possible. The LED screen lights up and leaves a mark to show where the ball actually hit. A golfer only gets five attempts. While scoring 500 is very difficult, it is not impossible.
Other games are The Shrinking Hole, another game of accuracy; Knockout, which is an inside left, center cup, inside right drill used by many pros, and a "virtual putting green mode" where golfers can, in any size room, perfect directional accuracy and speed control on putts up to 32 feet in length.
