Business partners and designers Pete and Paul have come up with a brand-new concept of putter.
The Hybrid X from FGX Sports is an innovative design which is very unique with a shallower and more natural putting arc which allows for a more efficient putting stroke.
The combination of our patented long length 39” shaft and 56 degrees lie command an alternative putting setup position. In this position further from the ball, typically an extra 10-12 inches for the average golfer, the natural arc of the FGX Hybrid X is naturally lower to the ground’s surface and delivers the face squarer to the target.
The Hybrid X Putter
PutterViewing point when addressing the ball is much clearer and less restricted. The putter improves roll on the ball due to the club staying lower to the ground.
It’s important to have a sturdy wrist in any golf swing. The FGX Putter encourages a grip similar to every other club in the bag. At the moment of impact, stability is required through the putter face, grip, hand and arms. Our swing enforces this every step of the way!
The simple face that are arms are attached to our body makes it almost impossible for an arc to be avoided. For years golfers have tried to perfect a “straight back and straight forward” robotic approach to putting.
The results suggest this art is yet to be perfected amongst most golfers. Our new putting stroke revolves around the spine. Our spine is stationary so lets us use this as an anchor in our simple, consistent stroke.
All-day every day we look at the world with the tops of our head facing the sky. This is the way we practice using our eyes. Yet suddenly when we want to hole a putt in our Sunday medal we decide the best way to evaluate this view is with the top of our head facing forwards.
By moving our ball position further away and lengthening the shaft we find ourselves in a more natural position evaluating the putt using a skill we practice subconsciously all day every day.
FGX Sports are promoting a swing with less moving parts than a traditional putting stroke. The outcome of this is a reduction in margin for human error. Humans are not robots; we can’t perfectly replicate our movements. By reducing the number of things, we have to focus on when standing over a putt, re-moves an element of stress.
We have all done it, we are standing over a putt in our monthly medal thinking “straight back and straight forward = zero face to path = straight shot = victory” then push the putt out to the right. An arc is natural, let’s not fight it, but maximize its potential.
