WE TRIED IT! > Point N Putt SX-1 Putter

We all know that putting is arguably the most important part of golf, so getting a putter that can inspire confidence on the green is paramount to success. If you’ve been struggling with your putting, or are simply looking for a new wand to help shave strokes off your score, then a recently-released Australian-made product could be just the ticket. PNP Golf’s unique Point N Putt SX-1 Putter takes alignment to the next level, and features a balanced, comfortable and confidence-boosting design that could help even the most ruffled of putting strokes find the bottom of the cup more often. We took the Point N Putt SX-1 out on the links for a few rounds, and we seriously loved it. The extended “Directional Pointer” makes alignment a cinch, as it inspires “pointing” rather than “squaring” the clubface. Studies have shown that pointing is easier and more accurate than squaring for most golfers, and recent SAM PuttLab studies revealed over half of the participants improved their alignment on average by 16.5%. In our demo, we found that the “pointing” aspect actually improved our thought-process when putting—giving us one less thing to think about—resulting in a more natural putting stroke. Brilliant. The 380g head is a matte black, which reduces glare and helps you focus on the Pointer. In addition, the head features customisable head weight options; by adjusting the 42g or 62g weights with a small tool, you can create head weights of 360g, 400g and 420g. This little tweak can help you create a well-balanced head to inspire the confidence in knowing that the putter will stay on line during the stroke. Overall, we really loved the Point N Putt SX-1, and recommend you try one out if your putting needs help. www.pnpgolf.com
