Buyers Guide 2017: The Greens Wizard

Greens WizardThe Greens Wizard is a new putting aid created to provide instant, visual feedback to help train players to use their feet to feel the breaks and slopes of the green. With practice players will learn to trust their feet to help choose the correct line. While the concept is simple, the Greens Wizard has undergone two years of devel-opment to ensure maximum accuracy and it is now market ready. It is a durable product built using polycarbonate, which also allows users to clearly view the feedback. It contains a clear damp-ening fluid that highlights the leveling ball inside and, more importantly, promotes optimum accuracy. Whether a professional is looking to dial in their green reading ability, an amateur feels clueless on the greens, or a caddie is mapping greens for their next tournament, the Greens Wizard is perfect for all play levels.

Long time caddy for Phil Mickelson, Jim “Bones” Mackay, wrote in a recent article sharing his 10 Rules For Reading Golf Greens. No. 2 on the list is trusting your feet: “To get a perfect read I stand over the ball as though I’m going to hit it. I get a great sense of the break not only with my eyes, but with my feet. When I look down at the ball, I can tell immediately whether it’s a fraction of an inch higher or lower than my feet. Then I factor that in along with what I see from the other perspectives. Don’t sell your sen-sory awareness short: Amazing as it might seem, almost everyone will get information from the stand-at-address perspective that you can’t gather from reading the green with your eyes.”

The Greens Wizard was created with simplicity in mind — it’s essentially a level on your foot. You don’t need to be a tech genius to use it and it doesn’t require batteries, a smart phone or a WiFi signal — just gravity.
