    I'm referring to the 3 click swing meter(experimental),not the original Power bar..It was introduced like 3 months ago...It does look like the Putter Pal...Thanks,ScottHope.

    dryspot:

    Im a do it all golfer sometimes i miss ding sometimes i just

    try 2 ding. i putt from front view and reverse view. And i know this might

    be a dumb question but if u decide 2 miss the ding how can u tell

    which side 2 miss on i tryed missing early and late and most times

    i choose the wrong side lol.

    dryspot.

    No question is really dumb.  Some of the silliest of questions can be the good ones.

    Not sure if yo have fixed your little problem yet but for others reading this...

    I'm a miss the ding putter...  you sound like what I was like when I first started to miss the ding.  Basically in 2 minds....  miss the ding or aim and ding.  You have to decide on one and stick to it.

    The dot movements stay the same on each different course... so if you play the one course often,   start to put the movements in a group... no movement, slow, med, fast,  very fast.  Once you do this then you can consistantly miss the ding for that group.  Each course is different though.   For very fast dot movements then move the Aim and miss the ding... sometimes close to the end line.

    Dots move to me or away from me...  then I click the opposite of that direction, eg: dots moving to me then I click right of ding...  dots moving away from my Avatar then I click left of ding...  how far to miss the ding depends on how fast they are moving.

    With the snake dot movements or your not sure what they are doing (like most greens on Kia...lol) ... just ding it (hit straight)

    This all depends on the how hard you hit the ball too

    No worries Tony, I seem to be messing up more than ever nowadays, maybe it's time to ditch this and go back to Lego™

    I hardly move the Aim, regardless of how far away I'm from the Pin. Except when the dots are moving at warp speed.

    Start a practice round and find a flat green (good luck fnding one...lol) then click just before the last line on meter or just after the first line.  Careful not to click on those lines or the ball will go 2 inches, make sure your in the boundary's.  This will give you a good idea of how far the ball will turn.

    No Probs.  Don't overthink anything, just do basic calculations and hit.

    Or,  I heard a wise old man once say....    "Use the Force"

    Keep practising,  it will all fall in to place.
