| The Putting Arc T3
|The lightweight T3 will fit in your bag. It weighs only 7 oz. and is designed to fit in the side pocket of a pro bag. |
The Putting Arc is a revolutionary new training device, which will guide you to a simple, repeatable, and understandable approach to putting. The Putting Arc will assist you in developing a confidence when standing over your putter felt by only a small percentage of golfers, a confidence in your ability to direct the golf ball exactly where you intend.
| The Putting Arc Factss || |
| • || It is based upon natural body movement which can be quickly learned and repeated. Results can be seen in several days … 20,000 repetitions are not required. |
| • || The clubhead travels in a perfect circle (radius R) and the projection of this circle on the ground is an ellipse in the shape of the Putting Arc. |
| • || The putter is always ‘on plane’ (the sweet-spot/spinal pivot plane). The intersection of this plane with the ground is a straight line, the ball/target line. |
| • || The club face is always square to the above plane. It is only square to the ball target line at the center line of the Putting Arc. You are learning an inside to square to inside putting stroke. |
| • || In this perfect putting stroke, there is only one moving part. The hands, arms and shoulders rotate as one unit. No manipulation of the hands or arms is required to follow the correct path with a correct clubface. It happens automatically. |
| Note to ‘Straight-Back-Straight-Through’ Putters: |
There are only two ways for the putter to travel straight back and straight through:
1. The pivot point (spine or shoulder joints) must be perfectly over the ball.
2. You must manipulate the club face during the stroke
Both are unnatural, require many moving parts, and are difficult to repeat consistently. The Putting Arc can cure the bad habits you have formed trying to make the putter go straight back and straight through.
The modern putting stroke of the successful touring pro is the inside-to-inside or arc type stroke. This is the stroke used by 95% of the successful touring pros, and taught by the top putting instructors in the country. However, 95% of the amateurs still try to putt straight back and straight through. With the Putting Arc, you too can learn to putt like the pros ACTUALLY putt.
In 1 1/2 years, The Putting Arc has been used without compensation by over 200 touring pros with amazing results. These include 3 Champions majors, 12 Champions wins, 1 PGA major, 11 PGA and European wins, 5 Nationwide wins, and 3 Women's tour wins.
| FAQ's || |
| How was the Putting Arc invented? |
The Putting Arc started in the inquisitive mind of VJ Trolio, a young teaching pro at Old Waverly Golf Club. In the winter of 2002 VJ noticed that if the putter is swung perfectly "on-plane" along an inclined plane, that the putter head appeared to move on a curved path, when viewed from overhead.
When Dave Hamilton was asked what kind of curve this was, he said he did not know but he would ask someone who might know. After one day of study, Joey Hamilton came back with the interesting fact that this curve was a very specific segment of an ellipse, and the formula for this ellipse was first calculated by Appolonius of Perga over 2000 years ago in 200 BC. The patent for the Putting Arc is based on this formula and the actual product design, which was done by Dave Hamilton.
The Putting Arc would not have been possible without the combined efforts of these individuals, and all three of them have their name on the Putting Arc patent.
What are the main differences among the three models?
All have the same arc and are used the same.
The difference is in the material they are made of which affects the weight. Another difference is the size....the T3 is about half the size of the other models and measures approximately 20 inches.
Which one is the most popular?
Most people who want to take the Putting Arc with them when they travel prefer the MSIII. However, teaching pros and people who will mainly use their arc indoors (such as in the office or den) prefer the Deluxe.
Why should I buy a Putting Arc?
REASON #9 - In its August 2004 edition, Golf Digest rated the Putting Arc the #1 putting training device which you can use with your own putter. Some of the other highly rated training devices have been on the market for 20 to 30 years, so this rating covers a lot of training devices over a long period of time.
REASON #8 - Golf is a game played from the side of the ball on an inclined plane. The Putting Arc's unique patent uses math to precisely calculate this plane, as well as the putter path and putter face angle. The lines on the Putting Arc show the putter face angle, and they are as important as the arc itself. This is the secret of the Putting Arc.
REASON #7 - The straight back - straight through putting stroke with the clubface always aimed at the hole is the putting stroke of the 1980's, and it is out of date. It is used by very few successful touring pros because it is not natural, and it requires precise hand manipulation to make it work. Under pressure, this manipulation is very hard to repeat.
With the Putting Arc you learn a stroke which is taught by the LEADING ARC-TYPE PUTTING INSTRUCTORS in the game. These include Butch Harmon, Jim Flick, John Elliott Jr., Stan Utley, Mike Shannon, Todd Sones, Putting Arc co-inventor V. J. Trolio, and our tour reps, Tony Sills and Pat Sellers. In this stroke, the putter actually moves straight back and straight through, but on the above mentioned inclined plane. Because of this inclined plane, the putter head traces an arc when viewed from overhead. The putter face is always square to the inclined plane and only square to the target line at impact, and the ball roll is true and perfect.
REASON #6 - When you use the Putting Arc you don't have to wait long to see an improvement. Thousands of reps are not required to improve your putting stroke. Tommy Armour III used his Putting Arc for only two weeks, and he then won the Valero Texas Open with a PGA tour record score of 254. Also, Champions Tour players Dana Quigley, Tom Purtzer, Jim Ahern, and David Eger all won an event soon after getting a Putting Arc from Champions Tour rep Tony Sills.
REASON #5 - The Putting Arc works for everyone....right and lefthanders, women and men, short and long putters, junior and senior golfers, high school and college golfers, and it will work for you. The all-time 72 hole scoring records on the PGA, Nationwide, and Women's European Tour were recently set by short-time Putting Arc users, and several World Junior Champions and numerous high school state champions are known Putting Arc users.
REASON #4 - The Putting Arc is simple and portable. No assembly is required, and that is why the pros like it. It can be used on a practice green, a carpet, or even a tile or concrete floor. To quote Putting Arc Co-Inventor and Old Waverly Teaching Pro V. J. Trolio, "Putting is 43% of the game. A person who takes this device and uses it once a day, 10 times a day, 15 times a day, or 30 minutes a day will improve his putting. No matter the level, no matter where they are in the game, they will improve their putting." With the Putting Arc, this practice can be done with or without a ball, a putting green or even a carpet.
REASON #3 - The Putting Arc is the BEST KEPT SECRET in golf, and its presence is like the tip of an iceberg. For every one you see on the practice green at a pro tournament, there are three or more back in the touring pro's hotel room, motor home, or airplane. This is especially true for the mini-tour players, though there are many more hotel rooms than airplanes on the mini-tours.
REASON #2 - The Putting Arc is GUARANTEED to improve your putting or your money will be refunded. Of the first 18,000 arcs shipped, fewer than 10 have been returned under the above warranty.
REASON #1 - A top teaching pro recently told his students that the only training devices they should buy are ones which the touring pros actually use. The Putting Arc is used by over 475 touring pros for 135 plus professional wins in the past three years. Further recent proof that it works for the pros...Putting Arc known users finished first or tied for first in ALL SIX second stage Tour Q Schools and the Champions Tour Q School finals in 2004.

Thank you for your appreciation of my success. What a pleasant surprise at my doorstep! The week I received the new Putting Arc, after two days practicing, I had 24 putts in the second round and 21 putts in the third round at the PGA Champion course in West Palm.
Thank you for improving my golf game and best of luck with your company.
Kyle Dobbs, Professional Golfer
Thanks for sending both versions of the putting arc. You folks did a nice product presentation. Hope to get you folks an article on our e mail newsletter in the next few weeks…www.thegolfersnewsletter.net.
As far as the product:
I have been playing professionally for 24 years and I believe your product is a winner. The concept and the basis of the concept is of benefit for all golfers and all skill levels.
A product that has universal value is a true value and not many products have benefit you can measure for the novice as well as the professional.
I would recommend this product for any player who wants to putt with fewer putts and have a lower score.
Jeff Thomsen Signature Golf Academy
I am a PGA Class A professional in Houston, Texas who is looking to make a career on the PGA Tour very shortly. I have always been a great ballstriker, but my putting was never good enough until now. I recently purchased the Putting Arc at Edwin Watts, and I have never made more putts in my life. In the past week, I have shot 68-67 without hitting the ball that well. The difference has been the Putting Arc for sure. I am making everything I look at. I just want to thank you guys for selling this awesome product. I will never travel without the Putting Arc in my bag.
Tim Poulos, PGA Class A Golfer
When asked how he heard about the Putting Arc, he replied, “…I used it and fell in love with it. It’s by far the best training tool I’ve ever used.”
