Challenge #1: Consistent Loft
With traditional flat-faced putters, proper hand position is critical to hitting good putts as it affects the loft on your putter. If your hands are too far forward, or too far back, you will struggle making solid contact, getting the ball on your intended line and controlling the distance.
With a Tru-Roll Putter, your hand position does not affect the loft. This increases the error-margin, directly resulting in more putts made, less three-putts and therefore lower scores
Challenge #2: Consistent Roll
At impact, the traditional flat-faced putter causes the ball to hop off the face and get airborne with back spin. The ball then must overcome this back spin when it makes contact with the green before it can roll towards the hole. This change in motion, or skidding, makes it significantly more difficult to both consistently get the ball rolling on your intended line and to have consistent distance control.
The round face of the Tru-Roll Putter reacts differently at impact. With the round surface making contact with the ball, the ball rolls true, without back spin or skidding. This means more putts are on line and proper distance control is significantly easier to achieve.
Challenge #3: Forgiveness on Miss-hits
Traditional flat-faced putters also cause a lot of resistance when the putter “scuffs” along the green during the putting motion. This common miss-hit causes the ball to come up several feet short of the hole leading to more missed putts and higher scores.
When the same stroke is made with a Tru-Roll Putter, the round face is not nearly as affected by scuffing the green as the flat-faced putter; the putt still rolls out towards the hole, leaving a significantly shorter second putt.
