    Just wondering how pervasive Aimpoint is with players on this board. I've come across a few times lately and am definitely intrigued.

    Hahaha - yeah they do red dot sights.  However I'm pretty sure he's talking about the golf product that is supposed to help with your putting!

    I personally do not use it but I see many others that do.

    Checked for it on line and found it to be rifle scopes also......I am a Bushnell person and love that product...have been loyal to them for years....the degree of accuracy is tops in my book......cz  : )

    I got fitted for a putter and they used an aim point device during the fitting.

    I took a course and bought into the program briefly last year but it did not work as well as I had expected for my game...

    Apologies for not being clearer -- it's the course that @Chris referred to above.  It's a method for reading greens that seems be getting some publicity -- a few pro's are using the system/charts.

    Here is a link to an article describing the Aimpoint system. I must admit, this is quite intriguing...

    Looked into it but never bit, can't quite figure out what they are trying to teach with it

    I looked in to it, but honestly, it looked like too much effort for the amount of golf I play. I have bigger issues than getting the perfect read.

    I took an AimPoint Green reading course and have found it to be helpful. I have found my green reading ability has improved and I feel I make more putts now as a result.  I do not always use the AimPoint charts.  Here is a webPage regarding AimPoint green reading.   http://aimpointgolf.com  The AimPoint system is what the Golf Channel was using originally on their broadcasts to read and show viewers the putting line during tournament coverage.  I believe the GC now uses something else.

    You have to be a very analytical person and good with numbers IMHO to enjoy the course and methods...

    It works pretty well, but it assumes the green speed is consistent. Remember Muirfield? Down here, we putt on a lot of bermuda grass and the greens aren't nearly as consistent as bent grass due to grain, what treatment is being done, the humidity and a lot of other factors. In a sense, if you can work on your speed control such that you consistently roll a 10 foot putt 10" or 12" past the hole and find the line from you ball that would give you a dead straight putt (the zero line) and aim a bit away from that line to the side the cup is on, you will make a lot of putts. In other words, practice putting for 20 minutes as often as you can.

    @Pony/@fredcloss -- Thanks. After reviewing the concepts a bit I think the zero line concept has made quite a bit of difference in my approach. Not sure I'm quite up for a course yet, the concepts that I've been able to glean from a few sites have been super helpful.
