AVAILABLE NOW; RRP: US$279 (via the website); biomechsports.com SIMPLYACE BIOMECH ACCULOCK ACE PUTTER B IOMECH’S flagship product, the AccuLock ACE putter is designed to match the biomechanics of the human body. Launched at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, the putter was invented by scientists, professional sports instructors and design engineers who love golf. The AccuLock ACE was developed using a host of scientific principles that produce a more natural and consistent putting stance and stroke. An improvement over traditional putters and putting methods that focus solely on mechanics, the ACE was designed from the body-out and features the AccuLock ‘Core Putting System’ that combines the physiology of the human body with the physics of the proper putting motion, creating an anatomically optimal putter design. The AccuLock putter’s anatomically optimal design permits the grip to rest against the leading forearm, stabilising the hands, arms, and shoulders. Using the core muscles and a stance that facilitates the simultaneous viewing of the target line and golf ball, this method reduces and/ or eliminates excess hand, arm and shoulder movements, resulting in more accurate putts. Heath Slocum, the first PGA Tour player to put the putter into play, says: “It just feels natural and more athletic. To me it’s just easy and makes sense.” Inventor, company’s founder and CEO, Dr Frank Fornari added: “The putter and method are a natural outgrowth of the most efficient and simple way to perform the putting stroke. “The club simply takes much of the thinking and extraneous movement out of the stroke, resulting in better alignment, set-up, motion, and ultimately better putts,” he said. “The research and development have taken six years and the data regarding the improvement for every aspect of the putting motion are very compelling. Its design also can prevent and reduce back problems typically associated with traditional putting and the method requires much less work.” The putter has received considerable interest from PGA Tour players and its presence is increasing on other professional golf tours, including a top-10 finish by Japan Golf Tour superstar Shingo Katayama at The Crowns tournament in Aichi, Japan.
