If the majority of golf shots are taken near or around the green, why do so few golfers have an efficient short game? Two avid golfers have created a new golf training aid that could answer this question, but they need your help to make their dream a reality.
Jonah Mytro and Clay Hood have created the Perfect Pitch Golf Mat to help amateur golfers improve their setup and improve their results around the green. The goal of the product is to provide an alignment aid to help hit more consistent chip, pitch lob and bunker shots.
The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat is a portable mat (3 lbs) that golfers can use at home, golf range or practice facility. Color coordinated foot and ball markers allow golfers to correctly line up their feet as well as ball position based on desired – red for a chip shot, white for a pitch shot and yellow for a lob or bunker shot. The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat golf training aid was developed for golfers of all sizes and skill levels and comes in three different sizes to accommodate a variety of players – junior, medium and large.
The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat improves five critical areas of the golfer’s setup – stance width, alignment, aim, ball position and distance from the ball. This golf training aid helps golfers consistently feel the proper setup position so they can focus on the shot.
To help with the product launch, Myrto and Hood have set up a funding campaign on Indiegogo.com with the goal of raising $15,000. Their campaign will receive all of the funds contributed by midnight PST, Saturday, July 20. All money raised will go towards fulfilling their first order of 1,000 mats.
“My teaching experience has shown me that the biggest issue with a golfer’s short game is their setup. Our mats shows golfers how to setup correctly every time”, said Clay Hood, a PGA golf professional with over 10 years of experience teaching golfers of all abilities. “With a good setup, golfers have a much better chance of hitting better shots and shooting lower scores.”
It is estimated that 75% of golfers shoot 90 or above with the average score of an adult golfer at 98.3 (source: National Golf Foundation). With nearly 50% of all golf shots within 50 yards of the green, the Perfect Pitch Golf Mat has helped golfers achieve improved results around the green.
The funding campaign for the Perfect Pitch Golf Mat officially runs until July 20. The Perfect Pitch Golf Mat is expected to be available for order online on July 25.
