What is CentreCup?
CentreCup is a revolutionary new putting training aid that can also be used for chipping practice. Developed by PGA Professional, Ian Melville, the former coach of the Jamaican National Golf Team, it is the only training aid on the market that allows the shoulders to completely control your putting stroke - and ensures you make what is known as PILS, a Pure InLine Stroke.

What is a PILS putting stroke?
PILS stands for Pure InLine Stroke - meaning the putter head stays completely square to the ball and target line during the putting stroke. It is also knows as a 'straight back, straight through' technique and is often referred to as a 'pendulum stroke'. This is the optimum putting stroke as the putter face does not open or close during the stroke - the main causes of 'pushes' and 'pulls'.

How does CentreCup work?
The unique design of CentreCup shifts your focus away from the putter head, away from your hands, wrists and arms and makes you focus on making a putting stroke with your shoulders. Because all you can do when using CentreCup is make a simple rocking motion with your shoulders - and your hands and arms are unable to affect the purity of the stroke in any way - the putter head always travels square to the target (the ball). Every stroke you make is a PILS.

Why does it work?
Many things can affect your putting stroke, but the most common are breaking wrists and twisting shoulders. These swing faults cause the putter face to open and close during the stroke, which increases the chances of you hitting putts off line. CentreCup works because everything is locked in place and cannot move off line. All you can do is rock your shoulders back and forth. This delivers the putter face square to the ball on an incredibly consistent basis.

Where can I use CentreCup
CentreCup is best used on the practice green, where you can develop the feeling of a perfect inline putting stroke. But it also works at home or your office, where you can putt to an indoor target. CentreCup only takes a few minutes to assemble, is easy to transports in its own carry bag, and doesn't take up too much space. So it truly is a versatile training aid.

How often should I use CentreCup?
You can use CentreCup as often as you like, but to develop the kind of muscle memory of a tour pro - where the putting stroke becomes instinctive - we recommend at least 10 minutes a day. You don't always have to use a ball either. You can use it like a piece of gym equipment to get used to the smooth action it promotes. CentreCup works by training the big muscles in your body to 'remember' how the perfect PILS putting stroke feels. You can then take this feeling out on to the golf course.

Can CentreCup be used with other training aids?
Yes, but only 'target style' ones as the engineering technology in CentreCup is designed to control every aspect of the stroke and putter.

Can CentreCup be rented out?
Because CentreCup costs about the same as a good putter, we only sell CentreCup. However, many teaching professionals use CentreCup when giving putting lessons which last around half an hour - so they can be 'rented' as part of a teaching session.

What is the CentreCup warranty?
In the unlikely event that your experience problems with your CentreCup, we will replace any part on a new for old basis within 12 months of purchase.
