Overview: We believe that all golfers, at every level, understands that being prepared mentally is as or more important than hitting the range prior to your round. How many times have you got to the first tee after hitting that drive on the range numerous times and then hit a bad shot? It happens to us all "The First Tee Jitters". This is just one part of the Mental Game that you can eliminate from future rounds. There are many more examples like missing the 3 foot putt (that you have made thousands of time) to win a skin or a match, following up a double with another double because you weren't able to mentally rebound or simply letting your anxiety defeat your concentration. The good news all of these can be "reprogrammed" and your mind can "Perform Like a Champion". There is more on this later in the review and I will share my Self Assessment with you.

Robert is currently working with some amazing talent in a wide variety of sports. He is helping athletes excel at the highest level ranging from Juniors to Professionals and looks forward to teaming up with you. 
Here's just a few organizations he is deeply involved with.


Go Time Golf States: We all are aware that Pro Golfers work with swing coaches, short game experts, fitness coaches, nutritionists and yes Mental Game Psychologists. After numerous discussions with Robert it's obvious that he wants to help everyone and teach them how to be mentally prepared to handle life. When it comes to golf and other sports Robert has spent his time developing "The Mental Playbook". The Mental Playbook is designed to unlock the "Tour Players Champion Mindset" and deliver it to you! His goal is to prepare you for your next round more effectively and enhance your mindset during every round of golf you play. Once you enroll in this course you will be evaluated on "key" areas to improve the mental side of your game which effects 90% of a golfers success. Here's a quick snapshot of the results of my Mental Skills Pre-Assessment.
Current State: As you can see, I need to learn how to mentally handle anxiety, recognize emotions, increase concentration during my rounds with self talk and imagery. While I typically have a good attitude under stress (those bad shots and 3 putts) everything changes. Once I learn to control emotions and anxiety I will play better, enjoy the round more and SCORE BETTER! Yes - Unlock The Tour Players Champion Mindset! 

I am in the process of completing all the modules, working with Robert to create my new champion mindset and once done I will update this review and share my Post-Assessment results. I will also detail specific times during a round that I faced difficult situations, how I handled them and what the outcome was. So please stay tuned.....


Pros: Improving your mindset will help you in golf, in life, in your relationship, at work, with your friends and many other situations. Controlling your anxiety and emotions while increasing your concentration is much needed in a round of golf. Robert will help your game!

Cons: It's not going to happen over-night. As your hear many Tour Pros say "It's a Process" however, your mind is easier to change than your golf swing is and that's a proven fact. 

Go Time Factor: If you want to improve in more ways than one, acquire a mindset that will last a Lifetime, Play better golf and have more fun doing it - The Mental Playbook should be your next investment. We know you will find Elite Minds and Robert above and beyond your expectations. 

Stay Tuned: We will update this review as I enter into The Champion Mindset Zone........ I want to see my scores improve by 4 or more per round!

Overview: I have used Hot Stix Golf in the past and have always appreciated the quality of their work. Their attention to detail is second to none and they ARE THE EXPERTS in the industry. I obviously was only asking for a very small portion of what they do but, as always, they were eager to fulfill my request. Here's a little background on that request. I received a set of Limited Edition Black Titleist AP3s and wasn't getting the most out of the clubs. After talking to the team at KBS Golf Shafts they sent me a set of Limited Edition C-Taper Lite Black shafts (4-AW) to give a try. Now, like a kid at Christmas I wanted everything set up now so I could tee it up in 2 days at our friendly weekend skins game. I began calling around to a few shops near me and they all were happy to do it but wanted 3-4 days to complete the work. I talked to "Fergie" Chris Ferguson at Hot Stix and he said bring them up and we will do our best to get them done for you. I must point out others had said similar things but I knew the work would be perfect at Hot Stix. So, I drove by 4 other shops and delivered everything to their team. More on the outcome in a bit..


From Hot Stix: Fitting Services And What To Expect
ALL FITTINGS ARE PERFORMED OUTDOORS TO SEE TRUE BALL FLIGHT AND FEEL TURF INTERACTION
Prior to the fitting the player will receive a questionnaire about their game and what their goals are. Upon arrival we will do a quick evaluation of their current equipment (loft, lie, length, shaft frequency and swing weight). During this time the player will be able to warm up on the range. When the fitting begins, we will have the player hit a series of shots to gather data on Trackman and determine baselines for the players swing and tendencies. At this time the player will then test numerous shaft and head combinations until the proper fit and set make-up is met. Measurements for club length, lie angle, grip size and weight will also be taken. Upon completion of the fitting the player will receive a detailed analysis of the fitted equipment along with a price breakdown for the custom build. Since everything we do at Hot Stix Golf is 100% custom, pricing is done based on each individual manufactures component (head, shaft & grip). Purchasing the fitted equipment is coordinated through the players personal club fitter and all clubs are built to spec by Hot Stix Golf at our corporate headquarters in Arizona.
Shaft Fitting Only - Got the right clubs? With a lot of today's modern clubs being so easily adjustable, sometimes just finding the right shaft is all you need. Let Hot Stix Golf Shaft Profile your swing to find the best shaft for your current and future equipment.

Technology/Innovation:
From day one, Hot Stix sought to utilize technological enhancements to create competitive advantage in all facets of its business. 
A passionate focus to independent R&D and club testing has positioned Hot Stix in a league of its own. Deploying proprietary fitting software and mastering the art of custom club building has also set Hot Stix apart. In everything we do, exceeding each customer’s expectations is Hot Stix’s loftiest goal.
Hot Stix serves serious golfers from company-owned locations throughout the country. Each location utilizes all of Hot Stix proprietary technology, has all the latest in available equipment and is managed by a Hot Stix certified fitter. All operational activities are centralized and are coordinated in the Arizona-based headquarters.
Hot Stix is committed to expand into new markets as meaningful opportunities are evaluated. The Company also seeks to establish highly effective partnerships with leading organizations serving the golf industry.


Now Back to our Review: As you can see Hot Stix Golf is serious about getting golfers fit for every club in the bag from putters to drivers. They utilize the latest technology including their own proprietary fitting software, Trackman, Foresight and even have a Golf Laboratries Inc. robot! They offer every service that the Tour Pros use to optimize their game. You really need to visit them to get the full scope of their services! Hot Stix partners with the best like Titleist, Taylormade, Ping, Mizuno, Cobra, KBS, Project X, Graphite Design, Nippon, True Temper and many many more. Please Click on above photo to see them all as there are way too many to list!

Needless to say I was extremely excited and really looking forward to getting my clubs back. They removed old shafts, spined new KBS shafts, added 1/4", soft stepped them once, tipped them to maintain stiffness, added new Golf Pride MCC Grips, perfectly aligned labels and my clubs were ready to go faster than I expected! Quality Work - Excellent Service!

First up - The Range to dial in distance and get a feel for the new shaft set up. I added 6-8 yards per club (from stock shafts) and I was at my desired trajectory with every iron. These shafts are very accurate/consistent and my little draw was going where I wanted it to. This definitely has a lot to do with how Hot Stix set them up! While the range was fun I couldn't wait to hit the course to see what they do under pressure in a skins game! 

I specifically keep track of what club I hit into greens when I play. I had my 4-GW fit with these shafts and I hit 11 of 13 greens in round one! In round two much of the same hitting 12 of 14 greens with the same clubs. This is a one to three greens in regulation improvement from prior club set up. Overall after just two rounds I am extremely impressed and happy with the work performed by Hot Stix. I will have them swap out my wedge shafts next, go through a putter fitting and have them fit my woods so my entire bag is dialed in!

Review High Heat 257+ Driver By Knuth Golf - Go Time Golf

Go Time Golf Review: Knuth Golf High Heat Driver 257+ Technology
Name of Manufacturer: Knuth Golf www.KnuthGolf.com

SAVE:   $125.00 on Drivers  - $66.00 on Fairway Woods  - $51.00 on Hybrids
Select:  GoTimeGolf.com when asked how you heard about High Heat Prior to Checkout!
Name of Product: High Heat 257+ Drivers with Premium Fujikura Shafts 
Overview:  We tested the Original High Heat Drivers in 2016 and that review can be found on our blog. Since that time the team at Knuth Golf  has been very busy trying to improve on what may have been the best driver on the market. Could they do it? Please keep reading and we are sure you will find out!



Here's more about Knuth Golf: Knuth Golf, Inc. was formed for the single purpose of developing outstanding high-quality golf clubs that are designed from the ground-up for the amateurs who have significantly different swing speeds and performance needs compared to Tour Pros in order to improve their performance and enjoyment of the game. 

Given these objectives, with Dean Knuth’s historic inventive nature and born out of his nearly 40 years of love for and commitment to amateur golf (see Dean Knuth's biography), he invented the Optimal CG Game Changer and Fire Zone Face Technologies which were engineered into the 2015 High Heat driver named "best" for amateurs by several media, including Sports Illustrated, and by us.  Dean was named "The Top Innovator Of Golf In The Industry" by Golf, Inc. Magazine for his new Technologies.

Dean’s partner, Stephen Trattner, had been the USGA’s intellectual property attorney where he worked closely with Dean during his 16-year tenure at the USGA. Since then, Steve has been instrumental in the development and testing of Dean’s patented and patent pending technology in the High Heat driver.

As with Dean, Steve shares a deep commitment to the game of golf, which stems from his long representation of the USGA and several famous golf resorts, including among others Pebble Beach and Pinehurst.


When co-founder Dean Knuth invented the USGA Course and Slope Rating Systems, he learned amateurs would reduce their scores the most with increased greens in regulation (“GIRs”). But to accomplish this goal required clubs designed for them instead of Tour pros and such clubs had to be far more forgiving than any of the major brands. He decided to design such clubs.


That is why:
  • The original High Heat driver’s center of gravity was 25% deeper and 18% lower than any of the major brands for greater forgiveness resulting in more fairways, distance, and GIRs;
  • Their Optimal Center of Gravity Technology was named the “best of any new technology of any club” because you “do not need a physics degree to know how much this will help amateur golfers compared to the major brands,” wrote Gary Van Sickle of Sports Illustrated;
  • Their original metal woods which they introduced in 2016-17 had titanium faces which provided much more distance and forgiveness for more GIRs and lower scores compared to any of the major brands which used steel faces. Steel faces have very little trampoline effect on off-center hits resulting in a significant loss of distance and is often the sole reason why amateurs' metal approach shots fall short of the green approximately 50% of the time, and unlike the Tour Pros end up with bogies or worse 80-90% of the time.
  • High Heat's original driver which we tested and loved and original metal woods were named every year the “best” by multiple media, and their customers raved about landing in more fairways, more distance, more GIRs and lower scores.
  • High Heat's  original technology was engineered into their High Heat 257+ drivers and metal woods which are now even much better for amateurs than major brands. That’s because they are the only clubs with a higher trampoline effect outside the center of the face, compared to the center of the face which is permitted by a 2016 USGA Equipment Rule Change.




  •  Knuth Golf's novel 3 Trampoline Technology creates additional distance on all shots outside the center of the face. So much so that it results in the ultimate forgiveness for the same distance across the face for increased driving and metal woods distances for far more GIRs. If you keep track of your scoring you know, like Dean found, more GIRs  result is much lower scores.
  • This novel 3-Trampoline Face Technology was called “the most significant new technology since the introduction of titanium faces almost 25 years ago,” by Tony Leodora of NBC Sports TV and ESPN radio. So, these clubs accomplished what others thought was impossible having more trampoline effect for more ball speed outside the center of the face compared to the center of the face. Independent media launch monitor tests and rave reviews by media, teaching pros and customers confirm the benefits of the award winning technologies.




WHAT YOU MUST KNOW!
  • Ultimate forgiveness for consistent distance across the face for each club;
  • “Average” distances coming close to your “best” distances unaided by wind;
  • Much more off-center driving distance so less need to lay up and having shorter approach shots to the green;
  • Increased accuracy for more fairways;
  • Consistently getting the ball up high in the air on your metal wood approach shots;
  • Increased metal wood distances and accuracy for more greens in regulation;
  • Approach shots that land softly on greens and do not roll off for more greens in regulation;
  • Line Up Mark to assist in hitting in the center of the face;
  • More confidence with these clubs;
  • More confidence in the rest of your game;
  • Lower scores;
  • Reduced handicap; and 
  • Much more fun.

SO LET THE TESTING BEGIN!



Looks & Feel:  
The Look of The High Heat 257+ is very close to the model we tested a few years back.  With that said, it has a very appealing look, sets up to the ball as good as any in the industry and the "mirror" face is noticed by all. The black metallic head and white alignment guide are different than most but scream confidence when you are ready to tee off. Next, my first drive produced a sound like none other! A sound that says "You hit that one well" and everyone on the range took a look!  The sound remains the same on center struck drives and those out towards toe or heel. The Sound, The Sound, THE SOUND! - Everyone who tested this driver Loved The Sound almost as much as the driver. More on that in a bit!

Performance & Playability: Before you read on ask yourself (be Honest as I know you will) How Often do you hit the sweet spot on your current driver? If you hit more towards the toe or heel how much distance does that cost you? If you hit it a bit low on club face what happens? How many fairways do you hit per round on perfect sweet spot strikes? How many fairways do you miss? How much distance do you lose on mis-hit drives


So... Here's what all -- that's right ALL our testers found with this driver.

Hitting a ball low on the face had ZERO loss (some had gains) in distance. Hitting a ball on the toe or heel produced much straighter shots than their current driver with approximately the same great distance across the face. Flushed shots flew farther than their current driver with anywhere from 5-20 yards in distance gain because they are the only brand that has taken advantage of the new USGA rule. Kudos to them for designing a driver that will produce excellent results for the amateur golfer!






Innovation: It's obvious that Knuth Golf set out to design and develop top quality clubs that would deliver incredible results to amateur golfers. Their products are designed to be longer, straighter and more forgiving for amateurs with lower swing speed than the Tour Pros. That profile covers most of you who are reading this review and anyone looking to improve their game. 

Again, LONGER, STRAIGHTER & MORE FORGIVING! All of which I found to be 100% TRUE!

Technology: We are sure that you now understand that Technology is "The Driver Behind This Driver"!

Pros: There's finally a driver available for the amateur golfers that will allow you to hit more fairways with extra distance which means you should hit more greens and score better! Your mis-hits will go farther and straighter than your current driver - GUARANTEED! YES GUARANTEED! 
FULL 30 DAY FULL PRICE GUARANTEE

CONS: Only available on line - who cares you probably do the majority of shopping on line and it comes with a Full 30 Day Guarantee.

Go Time Golf Factor:  This one is simple - GET IT NOW and watch your game improve and your scores come down! We can't wait to test the 3 wood and hybrid! It's Go Time!



Tester Feedback:

Thomas (56) - This Driver out performs my current driver by a bunch. Gained about 10 yards on good hits, 20+ on all my mis-hits and kept the ball on the grid with all shots. Oh and the sound - I LOVE IT!

Marc (48) - I heard this driver being hit on range and had to see what was making that distinct sound of power. I was amazed at shots not in the center of the club face - you think you pured one until you look at where it was on the face. I hit a few bad drives but was surprised and happy with the results.

Garrett (31) - The High Heat 257+ launches the ball and is as forgiving as they get. Mis-hit? what mis-hit? If one of the major brands created this they would charge $850.00 for it. 
Worth its weight in Gold.

Ben (Won't Tell) - We all want distance.... We all want accuracy.... We all want more fairways...
Now, we all want High Heat! Does Nolan Ryan know about this driver?

Pat (51) - My driver is over 10 years old. I have tried many at golf stores and left my trusty TM in bag. Time to bury old trusty and step up to HH 257+. One Great Driver!

Kenny (42) - Love it, Love it, Love it! Now have to hide some cash from wife and get it!

Matt - (49) - If you want to improve you shots off the tee check this bad boy out ASAP. Great performing driver, looks awesome and delivers excellent results.

Go Time Golf - Review KBS C-Taper Lite Limited Edition Black Shafts

Go Time Golf Review: KBS C-Taper Lite Limited Edition Black Shafts

Tested: C-Taper Lite Limited Edition Black Shafts

Overview: I am a huge fan of KBS Shafts and have played their TOUR Series, TOUR 90s, HI-REV Wedge shafts and C-Taper Lites in the past. As my game changed (due to age and lack of playing), I found that the proper fitment and having the right shaft allowed me to gain distance, increase accuracy and improve my scores quickly. I recently received a set of Titleist AP3s Limited Edition Black Set of irons. They came stock with True Temper AMT (Ascending Mass Technology) Black Shafts. These shafts are not for me! I struggled with distance, accuracy and feel so they really didn't last long! Two rounds to be exact! I really wanted black shafts and began the search. My first stop was  KBS as I had C-Taper Lites in a set of Titleist I previously had in the bag and loved them! When I saw that they had them available in a "Limited Edition Black" I immediately placed the order! Now the waiting game to get them and then have them installed by the team at Hot Stix...


From KBS: The C-Taper Lite shaft incorporates proven KBS performance benefits in a lighter weight design. Featuring a constant taper design and proportionate increase in wall thickness, the KBS C-Taper Lite optimizes energy transfer for maximum distance.

KBS Shafts are made for every kind of golfer, from amateurs to professionals. Find your fit on our site or by any of our fitting partners to see which KBS shaft fits your game.

Have you heard of the KBS Golf Shafts Golf Experience in Carlsbad, CA? It's a new way to look at fitting: any head, any brand, shafted with KBS shafts that work for you. They have more shaft options than you could imagine. 

"At the core of KBS is a dedication to shaft fitting. We offer a product for every level of golfer from juniors to Tour professionals."

Review by Go Time Golf:

Looks: Let's start with the "stealth" look of the "Limited Edition Black" C-Taper Lite Shafts. They scream custom, minimize any glare in the sunny Arizona climate and are the center of attention when you pull a club out of the bag. I had mine finished off with a set of Golf Pride MCC (New Decade MultiCompound) white and black grips of course! A Huge Thank You to the team at Hot Stix for setting these up to perfection - spined, soft stepped once, tipped to add a little stiffness, 1/4 inch longer and labels down. Let's see what the results are - after everything is dry!


Feel: The first wedge shot told me these were far superior shafts (for me) compared to what I removed from the AP3s. They have an extremely "smooth" feel all the way through the swing. I can feel the shaft releasing energy through impact and for me the weight is spot on for my swing. As I continue to hit all my irons I notice much of the same feel from my wedge to 4 iron. These shafts are very consistent regardless of what club is in your hand. If you miss one off the toe or heel they tell you in a subtle way verses sending a tremor through your body. While I'm in love with them - you may prefer a shaft that's heavier, has more/less spin, higher/lower trajectory or a different feel that's why KBS has many others to choose from!

Performance/Playability: I prefer a little higher ball flight and really wanted a bit more distance throughout the bag. The KBS C-Taper Lites delivered both! I added 6-8 yards per club (from stock shafts) and I was at my desired trajectory with every iron. These shafts are very accurate/consistant and my little draw was going where I wanted it to. While the range was fun I couldn't wait to hit the course to see what they do under pressure in a skins game! I specifically keep track of what club I hit into greens when I play. I had my 4-GW fit with these shafts and I hit 11 of 13 greens in round one! In round two much of the same hitting 12 of 14 greens with the same clubs. This is a one to three greens in regulation improvement from prior shafts. Overall after just two rounds I am extremely impressed and happy with the performance of the KBS C-Taper Lite Shafts. I will be swapping out my other wedges next to KBS Shafts.



Innovation/Technology: 
In our opinion KBS is The Leader in golf shaft innovation and technology and has been for a Long Time. Their shafts have wins on every Professional Golf Tour and continue to win Tournaments! They have shafts to suit everyone's game with various weights, trajectories, spin rates and more. KBS constantly introduces new shafts to the public that provide the latest technology and materials. Whether it's irons, wedges, putters, graphite or limited edition shafts you are looking for - KBS Golf Shafts has you covered! 

Pros: 
VERY SIMPLE - PLAYER DRIVEN. TOUR PROVEN. KBS Golf Shafts has a shaft that will improve your game. They are available at most fitting facilities (if not visit theirs), most club manufactures offer them as a stock or custom option and for you CUSTOM freaks like me they have you covered!

Cons: NONE - I repeat NONE!

Go Time Factor: It's Go Time! Hit More Greens, Dial in your Trajectory & Spin, find the Perfect Shaft Weight, Gain some Distance, Improve your Accuracy, Customize your Shafts and Lower Your Scores with KBS Golf Shafts!

Go Time Golf Review: MLA Golf Tour XDream Putter

Visit Go Time Golf at: www.GoTimeGolf.com

Tested: Tour XDream Putter - 36" Counter Balanced with SuperStroke Mid Slim 2.0 CounterCore

Current Promo: SAVE 10% On ALL SERIES PUTTERS & Add Any Accessory with 10% OFF!

Use Promo Code: GOTIMEGOLF10PC  (Valid through November 30, 2016)


Overview: We were invited to test a MLA Putter and chose the Tour XDream in 36 inch with a SuperStroke CounterCore grip. When we received the putter we were extremely impressed with the look and quality. MLA which stands for Multiple Line-detector Activation is a new patented technology that goes into all of their putters. We were intrigued with this technology and could't wait to roll some putts. The XDream comes with changeable weights (5/10/15 grams) to dial in the exact head weight that you prefer. We set our's up with 15 grams in the toe and heal to provide a stable heavier feel to go with the 50 gram CounterCore that goes with the SuperStroke grip. I have always been a straight back straight through putter and this set-up provided exactly what I was looking for!
I felt confident standing over this MLA Putter before I rolled any putts with it! That's a great feeling and I was hoping the results of my test would would be great as well. MLA Golf has a number of Pros using their equipment including Barry Lane, Phillip Golding, Jean-Luc Burnier, Clara Pietri, Seth Trolia and more coming soon! Read On.......




MLA Golf States: About Us: MLA Golf is fast establishing itself as a global player in high-performance golf clubs and equipment, with a strong reputation for innovation and quality.
From its headquarters in Switzerland – a country renowned for precision engineering – MLA Golf is planning an expansion into the U.S. in 2016. And with world-class products that can compete in most market, preparations to enter Japan and China in the coming years are firmly underway.
With its pioneering Multiple Line-detector Activation alignment technology, MLA Golf Putters and Irons are designed in Sweden using leading academic research. Whatever your playing level, you now have everything you need to reach success on even the most demanding courses. MLA Golf never compromises on quality, prioritizing genuine improvements to your game ahead of beautiful design – your clubs will not just look great, but give you the edge for years to come.

The breakthrough MLA Aim Technology, and the research that goes into our clubs, make the green more accessible with every swing and every putt. It’s no wonder that more and more acclaimed golfers across the world are switching to MLA Golf and feeling the difference for themselves.
Now it’s your turn.







The MLA Concept: 

MLA (Multiple Line-detector Activation) is the new patented alignment technology that will revolutionize your putting. This is how it works…

We all have internal guides to compare and analyze sensory information that control pace and direction of putts. The MLA putters are designed to take advantage of these guides. MLA Putters worked with Dr. Lennart Högman, Ph.D. Dr. Högman has studied the perceptual process for more than 20 years and has performed studies that have revised the science between the human’s perceptions and the human being’s motor skills.
He says: “An alignment system that acts upon multiple line detectors is a key to obtain veridical motion perception and a perfect in-line stroke surface.”
The brain consists of 100,000 line detectors that are divided into a number of groups that help us decide what is straight. A simple line, for example, activates a group of detectors. When several groups of detectors are activated, these help the brain to make correct judgments.
However, the more line detectors that are stimulated will not automatically lead to a better line judgment. On the contrary, this can create a “competition” between the line detectors that will lead to different degrees of (so called) optical illusions, as shown in the illustrations below (front and perspective views). MLA is developed to activate the maximum number of coordinated detectors for optimal aiming judgment. 
All of this leads to a putter that delivers results!

Go Time Golf Testing Session: Again, I will state that The MLA XDream Putter exudes confidence before rolling any putts! MLA Golf has done a phenomenal job with every aspect of their products. We were impressed with the looks, finish, paint fill, shaft, head, grip, alignment system and everything else. This putter is face balanced to perfection and the adjustable weight system allows even further personal preference customization. I purposely left my Scotty Cameron Futura X Counter Balanced putter at home. I wanted to be sure that the MLA XDream had my undivided attention for this session. I spent the first 10 minutes rolling putts to various holes to get a better feel for this putter. Honestly, after about 5 putts I felt like this was going to be a great session! The XDream felt incredibly comfortable in my hands, it produced straight back straight through stroke stable stroke and aligning it was easier than any putter I have ever used! My testing included 10 putts each from 4, 8, 15, 30 and 50 feet. 
So let the testing begin! I found a very straight 4 foot putt and used 3 balls at a time going through my entire routine prior to each putt. I will say that from this distance I am typically automatic. I wasn't surprised when I made 10 of 10 from this distance with The MLA XDream putter.
Now on to an 8 foot putt that once again was a straight putt. From this distance the results were a very impressive 9 out of 10 putts made. The putt I missed was a ball short tracking at the center of the cup! I knew as soon as I hit it that I decelerated a bit but it actually went farther than I thought it would. 
Next I moved on to a 15 foot putt that had about a cup and a half of left to right break in it according to the read I got using The HoleOut Method. The MLA XDream continued to impress me as I made 7 out of 10 putts from this distance which is well above my average. No 3 putts yet either!
It's time for some 30 footers with about 18 inches of right to left break. This may be where the MLA XDream separated itself from other putters in a big way. The distance control and line was incredible. I drained 3 of 10 putts from this distance, lipped out 2 and the worse putt was 2.5 feet from the hole. NO 3 putts!
As I moved on to a 50 footer with 3-4 feet of right to left break (depending on speed) I didn't want to put this putter down! This putt was flat for the first 30 feet and then went down hill with the break in the last 6 feet of the putt. Again thanks to the HoleOut Method for the awesome read! From this distance I made 1 of 10 and lipped one out with No 3 putts. I did have 2 run by the hole a bit but made the come backers from 4-5 feet. I would say that anything from that distance is a "That's Good" in my mind. I then decided to see what my results would be out of 50 putts mainly because I was in Love with the MLA Dream putter! Out of the 50 - 50 footers I made 4, lipped 9 and had ZERO 3 putts. Stellar Results!
I decided to test how heal and toe putts roll off the face of this putting machine. Every putt came off the face with the same roll as a center struck putt. Even when I missed the "Sweet Spot" by a ball either way the putt maintained it's line and distance! That's Impressive! 


Pros: MLA Golf has changed the future of putter technology. The XDream is one of the most forgiving and accurate hi-tech putters I have ever rolled. MLA Putters are extremely high quality and are sold at a very fair price. I believe that their technology will make any level golfer a better putter!

Cons: MLA Golf Putters are available mainly on line as they partner with retailers world wide. We hope to see them everywhere soon!

Go Time Factor: The MLA Golf XDream is in my bag and my Scotty is out! It' GO TIME! We look forward to testing their other putters, irons, apparel, bags and accessories soon!

Overview: Everyone wants to lower their scores and obviously putting is the easiest way to do that. We have all looked back on our rounds and said if I made that putt and this putt I would have shot...
We believe that putting requires a good read on the putt and then you must make a consistent stroke on every putt. Most great putters have their eyes over the ball, are square to the hole with their feet, knees, hips, shoulders and have a putting stroke that is either straight back/straight through or has a slight arc to it. We found that The STR8 PUTT covers every aspect of becoming a great putter and it can actually improve your green reading skills when you go through the set-up. More on that in a bit!
If we were only allowed to have one training aid The STR8 PUTT would be our choice!



STR8 PUTT STATES: Your Putting Coach In A Box! Everyone needs a coach to be/do better.  Bad habits become comfortable in the golf swing and in order to correct those habits you need someone/thing to tell you.  That's where Str8 Putt comes in.  The first training aid of its kind that allows you to check your feet, hands, shoulders and path of the putter with every stroke you practice.

Str8 Putt tells you when the putter is coming too far to the inside, when your hands are too flat, feet are too open and eyes not over the ball. Str8 Putt lets you see, hear and feel when you don't make the stroke you are trying to make, things a human can't give you.
If you want a consistent set up, consistent putter path and more confidence on the greens, then order your Str8 Putt today!
Do you take the putter back and through on the path you are trying? Do you know for sure? How can you tell?  Just because you missed the putt does not mean you made a bad stroke or does it?
Str8Putt was designed to give instant feedback on where the putter is going.  By moving the aid up near the hands, which control the path of the putter, you the golfer can feel, hear and see when and why you go wrong.  The simple yet hard to master design of str8putt is to NOT hit the parallel arms with the putter shaft.
There are no unanswered questions when you use Str8Putt.  
Do you set your eyes over the ball? Are your hands set at the same angle every time? All these questions can be answered very quickly using the easy to carry and setup Str8Putt training aid.  Consistency in ones setup will lead to confidence which means more made putts and no (or less) three putts.  
Str8Putt will correct your putting flaws and give you the confidence that when you are on the green you will make a great stroke. The simple yet highly effective putting aid will deliver immediate and long lasting results.



Go Time Golf States: STR8 PUTT comes in a handy pouch, sets up in seconds on the putting green and is one of the best built/quality aids we have have ever tested! Once on the putting green you simply extend 2 legs to create a "tri-pod", rotate rails, adjust the height, lock in place, align on the path of putt and you are ready to become a better putter! You can also adjust the width of rails if your stroke has a slight arc. I have always been a straight back/straight through putter with a slight forward press to start my stroke so I kept the guide rails fairly close together for short putts. However, on long putts I do need a slight arc in my stroke so I simply set the rails a bit wider. I started with some 5 foot straight putts to get use to a solid stroke that put my putter on a straight line and kept the shaft from contacting the rails. Then I set up for a 14-15' putt with a slight right to left break. I marked the ball position by putting a tee hole directly where the ball should be. By standing behind The STR8 PUTT we actually were able to fine tune our read by aiming the guide rails. Once set up you simply get square to the STR8 PUTT and roll some putts feeling a perfect putter path! At first, I felt as if my eyes were inside of the ball rather than over it. I took my position and dropped a second ball from between my eyes to check and to my surprise I was DIRECTLY over the ball! I was impressed! 
I was able to make 14 putts in a row from this distance using The STR8 PUTT and that was to a "Reduced" Hole using Wizard Golf's Putter's Edge! The STR8 PUTT is the real deal if you want to become a better putter, develop a consistent putting stroke, promote excellent alignment and make more putts!



Pros: STR8 PUTT is a high quality, well constructed, easy to use Training Aid that promotes a square set up, solid stroke and develops muscle memory to become an awesome putter. This is by far one of the best products we have ever tested. Thank You Daniel for bringing this product to Go Time Golf!

Cons: NONE! You don't have one yet! They are only available on line at this time. Your Teaching Pro isn't using The STR8 PUTT!

Go Time Factor: We are 100% Confident that The STR8 PUTT will improve your putting quickly!
It's Go Time for STR8 PUTT!

Our Testers Stated:

Tim 14 years old - New to Golf - The STR8 PUTT taught me something completely new about my putting stroke and I instantly putted better. It's a far better teacher than my Dad. Sorry Dad!

Jerry (Tim's Dad) 15 handicap: This is one great training aid. It promotes a proper set up and smooth stroke. I believe that any golfer would benefit from The STR8 Putt! We are going to purchase one!

Mark - Teaching Pro: Thanks to Go Time for showing me the STR8 Putt. We use many aids to improve our students' putting but this product tops them all. It combines all the putting essentials into one fabulous and easy to use aid. 

Muriel McIntyre - Pro - This product is a life saver, whether you're just beginning or a professional, this unit will improve your putting stroke and help with being more consistent / confident standing over any putt. Although not designed for long putts, will definitely help with short putts (4-10ft). I stood 8 feet away from the hole, and made 50 putts in a row. 

This unit is very easy to set up. I really like that it is adjustable, and you're able to bring it anywhere.  Can be used by both short putters and long putters. Major key detail is to adjust the height until the arms are about 1” below the putter grip. I also like that this unit gives you instant feedback, whether you're taking the putter too far inside or outside, making sure your eyes are set over the ball, or that your hands are set in the same position every time. This product is a must for any golfer looking to get better at putting.
