Laser putter perfect for straight greens, not much else
It was inevitable that geeks who love golf would figure out a high tech way to try and help with a struggling putting game. Granted, there are other possible solutions, but when someone decided to attach a triple Argon Laser to a putter they may have forgotten that most greens have breaks in them and few are able to put in straight line to the hole. But that doesn’t prevent them from trying. And besides, it looks cool.
Powered by a single 9 volt battery, the triple argon lasers send out three beams which create a kind of lane for which the ball to travel upon putting. The center laser is positioned to go over the ball so as to prevent it from being blocked (which make one wonder what would be the point of it) the outside two provide the necessary lane markers with which to short put into the hole. And there is a simple on/off button in the handle. But budding Tiger Woods with a Cylon fetish need to remember that while this putter would work great on miniature golf courses that are flat and “carpety,” it won’t really help with the majority of greens that actually have bends and breaks in the line from ball to cup. But hey, it is cool looking.
