Attributes training with Slopegraide Putting App as the key to his victory
Boyer became the third ever back-to-back winner of the Durham Amateur since it began in the 1970’s. Having also competed in the 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball at Chambers Bay in May, Boyer is exempt into all 2022 Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) Championships.
Since adding the Slopegraide Putting App into his practice and warm-up routine, Boyer has developed the trust and confidence in his putting stroke that has elevated his scoring performance and ability to win at a high level.
“Slopegraide is helping me build my knowledge of green-reading in a way that I never could without tour-level instruction,” said Boyer. “It’s clearly paying dividends already. Slopegraide is dramatically improving my putting ability at a competitive level that would otherwise take years to achieve.”
Slopegraide is an iOS and Android app that works with a GPS sensor that attaches to your waist and provides real time green reading, speed, and distance control training. As you stand on a sloped part of a putting green facing the hole, your hips naturally tilt down the slope creating a lower body sensation to feel the slope. The sensor uses your lateral hip tilt to calculate the slope of the green from where you are standing. In seconds, the app displays a reference point showing you exactly where to aim your putt.
“Making putts under pressure is infinitely easier when you can simply focus on rolling the ball on your intended start line,” said Boyer. “I approached every putt during the championship with the conviction that I had made the correct read.”
Slopegraide trains your eyes and your lower body to read both the slope and speed of the green with confidence. Rather than focusing primarily on stroke mechanics, Slopegraide is the only putting training device that quantifies and provides real time feedback if your green reading is correct.
“With Slopegraide, I’ve developed a better understanding of the direction and speed a putt needs to roll to go in the hole,”said Boyer. “Once I pick a spot where to aim, that knowledge frees me up to make a good stroke rather than trying to steer it in.”
Slopegraide comes with four display modes: slope percentage, slope degrees, US and Metric reference points. It adjusts for any green speed from 6 to 15 on the Stimpmeter. There is also a Coach Mode which interprets the slope direction when worn on the back of the user’s mid-section. Slopegraide ican be used for practice rounds and recreational play only and is not allowed in competition.
“Technology has finally reached the putting surface,” said Jeff Mocini, President of Slopegraide. “Slopegraide provides real-time putting training, feedback and stroke improvement just like Trackman does for swing training. It delivers that competitive edge every golfer is looking for.”
