To hole putts, developing consistency in your ball start line and speed control is key, with the ability to consistently control start line and adapt ball speed due to changing distances and slopes on greens.

We have a number of putting aids available from Visio Putting to help students with drills

CAPTO is a revolutionary new training and fitting system that gives golfers immediate and accurate data on their putting in real time and in real outdoor conditions.

The Capto Putting golf training aid can be used by any golfer interested in applying physics to take their golfing game to the next level.

I personally believe Capto is a game changer as a coach I can now measure my students on a variety of different lengths of putt with different breaks, that is invaluable.

Trackman Putting



Performance putting has entered a new era of how we practice, analyze and understand this critical part of the game.

With groundbreaking data parameters on both club and ball, the next generation of putting intelligence will help amateurs and professionals alike unleash their full putting potential.

Comparable to your swing analysis, you can now connect and validate your inner spectrum of feel triggers with accurate, trustable feedback on your putting stroke.

Welcome to a new world of putting.




Similar to iron shots, your putts are now tracked from start to finish, and everything in between.

Knowing your Tempo, Launch Direction, Speed, and Launch Direction are some of the most significant influencers on ones putting performance. Add Total Break, Skid, and good green reading, and you will have what it takes to make successful putts, repeatedly.

Besides providing actionable insights, these data points also help eliminate doubt, build confidence, and unleash talent – one stroke at a time.

Build talent and skill with actionable data.



With the TrackMan 4’s dual radar system and its internal camera perfectly synced in time and space, the information you receive is extremely accurate and actionable.

Provide insights that exceed expectations.
