A SMART STAND-UP PUTTER DESIGN - CONFORM TO R&A + USGA RULES
As a former hunting guide and sporting clay shooting champion, Jeff Pegg's left eye dominated his aim, and unfortunately, it also dominated his right handed putting stroke. As Jeff puts it . . .
“ I couldn’t hit a two foot wide hole, much less a four inch circular one!! I was always searching for a way to better my putting stroke but thought, even if I had the best stroke in the world, if I couldn’t get the ball started on the right line, what good would it do me?” The light bulb went on !!
In his search for a way to solve the problem, Jeff came across putters with laser beams, putters that you could stake into the ground and a few other strange concepts…. The problem he had, along with many other golfers, was that in addition to being too light weight and very unstable, these putters did not conform to USGA Rules nor R&A . He realized that in all sports where you try to hit a target, other than golf, such as sporting clays, archery, billiards and/or shooting a pistol, the most important part of the shot is the time you spend, behind the desired target, lining up your shot. But in golf, the golfer is standing up, looking down at the ball at a 90 degree angle to the putting line. He found only ONE out of 125 golfers can align their putts while standing above their ball. Is it any wonder golfers miss easy putts? They are simply not aligned . This brought him to the realization that to be deadly accurate on the putting green, you needed to be able to align the putter from behind the ball versus the side.
"I wanted to make a putter that would not only stand up on its own, even on undulating greens, but would also be able to withstand a reasonable amount of wind, giving myself and other golfers the ultimate alignment putter." "Additionally, I wanted my putter to improve a golfer’s stroke, by helping get rid of the "Yip's", and help develop a true pendulum stroke.”
Through a lot of trials and testing with different heads, a variety of shafts, and many styles of putting grips plus two United States mechanical patents awarded, Jeff was finally able to come up with the answer he was looking for - the Pegg Putter. This 20 ounce rail style putter conforms to both USGA and R & A (Royal & Ancient) rules. Thus, you may legally use it in any official game, local, regional, national or internationally. The reaction Jeff received, when for the first time, golfers would see the Pegg Putter just standing there alone on the golf green while Jeff aligned his putt, was extraordinary! All were at first amazed ! Some just thought it could not be serious . Jeff knew it was the typical attitude of people when discovering a true invention. ..And his response was the simplest one : Hey, give it a try !! And time after time, after consistently and confidently sinking putt after putt, the reaction was always the same. "Where can I get one of these putters?" All of a sudden, after testing it, no one was laughing at it, but they were ecstatic that they had found a putter that had been able to immediately – that’s after using it a few minutes - improve their putting stroke.
In correcting Jeff’s putting problems he has found that he can correct 99% of other golfers putting problems too...No, the Pegg Putter doesn’t make putts for you, but it sure makes putting easier!!!!
