CentreCup Pro - the complete putting & chipping coaching system
August 12, 2010

The new Tour-specification CentreCup Pro is an upgraded version of the best-selling CentreCup putting aid and delivers a pure putting stroke every time - whichever method a teaching professional recommends.

Using a proven and unique frame and brace design, several new features have been incorporated into the CentreCup Pro so it promotes both the ‘straight-back and straight-through’ PILS (Pure In Line Square) putting stroke as well as the ‘inside-square-inside’ stroke.

A new hinge mechanism means CentreCup Pro can be inclined to produce a perfect ‘in-square-in’ stroke where the pupil’s arms and hands cannot independently manipulate the putter face, the most common causes of missed putts.

When inclined to 12 degrees using simple indicators on the hinge points and combined with the Yes TruePlane putting aid – which is supplied with every CentreCup Pro – the end result is the optimum arcing stroke favoured by the majority of Tour players and leading amateurs.

in When in its full vertical set-up, CentreCup Pro delivers the putter on a perfect ‘straight back and straight through’ plane, a method favoured by world renowned coaches like Dave Pelz, with the shoulders completely in control rather than the smaller and less reliable muscles in the fingers, hands and arms.

The new CentreCup Pro also features high-grade stainless steel guides and specially-designed wheels so it’s easy to transport to practice putting greens and training areas. When inclined it can be used for wedge play from 100 yards in.

Leading teaching professionals currently using CentreCup Pro and CentreCup include:

• Solheim Cup Captain and LET Major winner Alison Nicholas, who was involved in the design of the CentreCup range of products and coaches at The Hagley Golf and Country Club and The European Golf Performance Institute;
• PGA Master Professional, Keith Williams, who has coached 2004 PGA Champion Scott Drummond among many other leading players, and who is already using CentreCup in several coaching programmes;
• Chris Jenkins, European Tour coach, England Regional Coach and PGA Advanced Professional. Jenkins, who coached young star Oliver Fisher onto the European Tour, is using CentreCup in short-game lessons at his Crowlands Heath GC academy.

In all, more than 250 PGA Professionals in the UK and mainland Europe are now using CentreCup products. Ideal for lessons, some have also created a ‘CentreCup Putting Academy’ at their golf club, hiring the units to members anytime they want for an annual membership fee, typically just £1 a week. Equally at home indoors and out, the unit can be used for staging group putting and chipping demonstrations, and for indoor putting lessons and demonstrations in evenings and in bad weather.

Launching CentreCup Pro, inventor Ian Melville, a PGA Professional, said: “Both our training aids deliver instant results that golfers can physically feel and easily understand - without over-analysis or the need for expensive computer-based software and systems.”

CentreCup Pro is available priced £790, although distributors Swingrite UK do offer a range of discounts and payment plans for teaching professionals.
