Chicago-based PuttPath Launches a Kickstarter Campaign Aimed At Raising Production Funds For Their New Golf Training Aid the PuttPath.

Because of the PuttPath, I literally dropped my handicap four strokes in one summer. But more importantly, I’ve gained a ton of confidence.

Golf pro Tim Overman has launched a 30-day Kickstarter campaign ( for his new golf training aid called the PuttPath. The campaign hopes to raise $12,500 by August 28th in order to get their newly designed PuttPath into mass production.

Unlike other training aids, PuttPath is both portable and affordable starting at $39.99. However, the first 100 Kickstarter supporters can get the PuttPath for $25; the second 200 pledges can get it for $30.

“I used to be a terrible putter,” said 38-year-old Overman. “I dreaded walking onto the green, because I had zero confidence I could sink even a three-foot putt.”

Working with various coaches, Overman tried to correct his path by changing grip and adjusting focus. But he still had a hard time squaring the face of the putter. After weeks of practice, something unexpected happened -- he thought about bowling. “When I bowl, I never look at the pins. I'm looking at the little arrows three feet in front of me on the lane.”

With this concept in mind, Overman began developing the PuttPath with two distinctly different sides: the training side and the pro side.

TRAINING SIDE – The training side has two contrasting colors that help golfers quickly learn to visualize the perfect arc so they’ll see it when they step onto the course to play.

PRO SIDE - The pro side contains a series of dots situated every 8 inches along the surface. This tool is designed to get the golf ball on the intended line to the hole.

PuttPath’s patent-pending revolutionary training system is based on your body’s own natural motion. By breaking down each phase of the putter’s swing, it teaches golfers to feel the perfect release of the putter head.

Because this motion can be quickly learned and mastered, users see real results in several minutes. Thousands of repetitions are not required to notice a marked improvement, because the PuttPath utilizes basic physics to create an ideal putting stroke. And you don’t even need a ball to practice making it ideal for the office or home.

“We’re really excited about getting the PuttPath into the hands of golfers everywhere,” said Overman. “Because of the PuttPath, I literally dropped my handicap four strokes in one summer. But more importantly, I’ve gained a ton of confidence. PuttPath turned the weakest part of my game into a strength.”

Anyone interested in improving their golf game, from a beginner to a tour professional, will enjoy positive results from using the PuttPath.
