Used by PGA Tour Players to Train a Repeatable, Consistent Putting Stroke

Evanston, IL – The Putting Board™ is a brand new training tool widely used by PGA Tour players, collegiate golfers, competitive amateurs and instructors to teach and train a repeatable, consistent on-plane putting stroke that dramatically improves putting performance. For the first time ever The Putting Board™ is now available to the public online at

“The best way to be consistent with your putting is to maintain loft and lie throughout the stroke,” said Luke Donald, PGA Tour player and former #1 ranked golfer in the world. “The Putting Board™ is the best aid around to work on this and it is one of the few training aids I use on a regular basis.”

Donald was the #1 ranked putter on the PGA Tour in strokes gained putting on three different occasions while using The Putting Board™.

“Luke became arguably the best putter in professional golf based on the principals of The Putting Board™ and has used prototypes and the most current retail version for the past 15 years,” said Pat Goss, Co-Founder of The Putting Board™ and Director of Golf & Players Development at Northwestern University. “The Board is based on my philosophy of neutrality in putting,” continued Goss. “Throughout my coaching career, I came to understand and appreciate the importance of moving the putter on plane to create a consistent and repeatable putting stroke.

Although Goss is most known for coaching Luke Donald, he also coaches and has coached, PGA Tour and LPGA Tour players Webb Simpson, Gary Woodland, Keegan Bradley, Trevor Immelman, Danielle Kang, David Lipsky, Dylan Wu and Chesson Hadley.

The Putting Board™ is such a revolutionary training aid that players of all levels—including a recent U.S. Open Champion, a top 15 LPGA player, a European Tour winner, a Korn Ferry Tour winner and countless other professionals—are using the device during practice sessions to ingrain a consistent and repeatable putting stroke.

“Pat (Goss) and I have worked through 5 prototypes over the past 5 years to create this simple and practical The Putting Board™,” said Sam McKenney, Co-Founder and Director of Player Development for the Wildcat Golf Academy. “We were using our homemade version for all of our putting lessons and getting incredible feedback. The only complaint was players wanted to take it home to continue to train. That is when Pat and I knew we had to fully develop the board. Our mission is to improve putting performance through training a repeatable, consistent on-plane stroke.”

About The Putting Board™

The Putting Board™ was founded by Pat Goss and Sam McKenney. Goss is the Director of Golf & Player Development at Northwestern University, one of the top collegiate golf programs in the country, as well as an instructor to dozens of professional golfers, including former #1 players in the world Luke Donald. McKenney is a teaching professional for two decades and Director of Player Development for Wildcat Golf Academy.

Over 15 years ago, Luke Donald and his instructor Pat Goss, who’s short game teaching philosophy focuses on the idea of “neutrality” in putting, started training with a makeshift putting plane board. Throughout his career, Goss continued to understand the importance of moving the putter “on plane” to create a consistent and repeatable putting stroke. This preliminary putting board allowed Luke and other players to practice and ingrain an “on plane” stroke. This type of training has led Luke Donald to be statistically one of the best putters of the modern era.

Four years ago, Pat Goss and Sam McKenney decided to make a better version of this board to help all levels of golfers. It has taken them time to observe, research and workshop this versatile training device to come up with the only training aid that will allow you to work on all aspects of your putting stroke with proper guidance and feedback.

The Putting Board™ trains proper path, face angle, lie, loft, stroke length and proper acceleration by allowing the golfer to adjust the plane angle to fit their set up. Unlike any other training aid on the market, The Putting Board™ allows players to practice proper technique during the stroke, and then repeat it over and over again.

This one of a kind training aid comes with a shaft clip that helps you maintain face angle during the stroke and a speed board to help you with stroke length on putts of 4, 7, 10 and 13 feet.  Whether you are a touring professional a beginner or somewhere in between, The Putting Board™ will help you improve your putting stroke. The Putting Board™ has already sold almost 1,000 units in a little over a year in more than 10 different countries.
