The Putting Arc MS-3D
Based on the original Putting Arc MSIII, the new MS-3D allows you to use the toe or the heel of the putter for training. It includes an adjustable mirror for feedback on the position of the head and shoulders. The product is an all-weather, lightweight, more versatile version of the deluxe wooden model. Weighing only 2.2 pounds, the Putting Arc MS-3D is 33″ in length – enough for a full stroke for most standard-length putts.
Because of the durable plastic molding, the product is extremely durable and extremely stable. Non-slip pads on the bottom of the product prevent movement, and tee holes are designed for the player who wishes to align the unit and stake it down. The Putting Arc is one of the best putting aids on the market.
The low center cut of the Putting Arc MS-3D accommodates more putter styles and reminds the player not to lift the putter too much while addressing the ball. Like all Putting Arcs, the MS-3D may be used right or left-handed. The instruction sheet for the product may be viewed and printed here.
The Putting Arc MS-3D is used by the top amateur, junior, college, and professional golfers. Multiple recent USGA national championships have been won by known Putting Arc users.
- The design of the Putting Arc is protected by U.S. Patent Number 6,561,920 B1, and the Putting Arc is a registered trademark
- The new MS-3D is the fifth generation Putting Arc. The heel arc, toe arc, and mirror make it much more versatile than any previous Putting Arc, and it has been received with enthusiasm by the many touring pros who have one.
- The adjustable mirror is possibly the most important part of this new product. It allows the golfer to check shoulder position and eye alignment for both the heel and toe arc strokes. Most importantly, it allows the golfer to focus the mirror on the ceiling and make sure the head and body do not move while practicing a perfect putting stroke.
The Putting Arc Works Because
The Putting Arc stroke is based upon natural body movement, which can be quickly learned and repeated. Results can be seen in minutes, and the stroke can be mastered in days. Thousands of repetitions are not required to show a marked improvement.
The putter is always ‘on plane’ as the putter head travels in a perfect arc determined by the elliptical plane that projects from a point between your shoulders to the back of the ball. If your putter face is square and the ball contacts the sweet spot of the putter, the ball will travel precisely down the aim line each and every time.
Learn consistent setup and ball placement, then all you need to do is ride the heel of the putter along the Putting Arc and focus on ensuring the putter face is square to your aim line. The Arc Glider can lock the face square (perpendicular to the track) if you want to be certain or are just learning this fundamental.
In this perfect putting stroke, there is only one moving part. The hands, arms, and shoulders rotate as one unit. No manipulation of the hands or arms is required to follow the correct path with a correct clubface; it happens automatically.
FAQs About the Putting Arc MS-3D
What is the Ideal Putting Arc?
The ideal putting arc refers to the slight curve a putter head follows during a proper putting stroke. Instead of moving straight back and forth, the putter head moves slightly inside the target line on the backswing and returns to the ball, and then returns back to the inside of the target line on the follow-through. This natural arc is a result of the golfer's posture and the angle at which the putter is held. Perfecting this arc can lead to more consistent putts and better overall performance on the greens.
What Does a Good Putting Stroke Look Like?
A good putting stroke is smooth and consistent, where the putter head follows a slight arc. The shoulders drive the motion, with minimal wrist action. The eyes are positioned over the ball, and the golfer maintains a steady head and spine angle throughout. The result is a fluid stroke that sends the ball rolling end-over-end toward the target.
