The FLAT CAT SOLUTION
can improve anyone's putt
Posted at 12:00 - September 27, 2018
The Flat Cat Solution Putter Grip is making the most important aspect of the game of golf easier. There are a variety of reasons as to why this is true, but most important is that the Solution addresses the single biggest fault that plagues golfers of all levels and abilities, and that is an overuse of the hands throughout the stroke. The grip shape, which is offered in two versions, quiets the hands and gives golfers the very best chance to maintain a square putter face at impact, paramount to making more putts!

As I work with students for hours each day on the practice putting green I see all kinds of compensations going on in an effort to hole more putts. From the way golfers hold the putter, to pre-shot routines, to different kinds of putter designs. It’s all been experimented with time and time again to no avail. But from what I am seeing on a daily basis, if golfers take advantage of their only connection to the putter, which is the grip, and get a product in their hands that improves their stroke without having to make technical changes it will revolutionize their game. That something is the Flat Cat Solution. Most golfers will never hit 350 yard drives, or be able to control their ball like the best players in the world, but EVERYONE can make more putts and lower their scores.
The Solution is great if you 3-putt too often, have trouble making short putts, feel your hands overactive throughout the stroke, or implement an alternative grip such as the ‘“claw’ or “pencil” grip. The flat sides that help you square the putter face and the weighted cone positioned under the hands are a game changing combination that I am seeing improve my students games every day. The added weight activates your big muscles and eliminates your hands from the stroke while the flat sides allow you to feel the putter face staying square through impact.
Great for traditional & alternative grips

An underrated aspect of putting and making more putts is also the visual appeal of the equipment in your hands. My tour pro students say to me all the time, “it feels good but it just doesn’t look good in my hands.” When that is the case it is going to be difficult to perform consistently under pressure. Simply put, the Flat Cat Solution looks amazing while feeling comfortable in your hands.
From a technical standpoint, with green speeds getting faster each year, the heavier the putter and the better the balance the more you will hear that beautiful sound of the ball hitting the bottom of the cup! I am always experimenting with different ways to help my students perform better and the Solution is providing some of the quickest returns I have ever seen.
At a time when golfers are spending hundreds of dollars on their equipment each year, for $49.99 the Solution is an easy choice. Why not upgrade the most important club in your bag without even having to buy a new putter? I tell my students all the time, golf is hard enough. So put yourself in a position to make it as easy and simple as you possibly can.
