CARLSBAD, CA - April 28, 2011 - SKLZ, the industry leader in athletic performance and sports skill development products, today announced it has introduced the Accelerator Pro putting mat as part of the company's line of golf training aids.
The Accelerator Pro is a portable indoor putting trainer designed to allow golfers to practice and develop three key putt lengths with perfect alignment, backstroke length and acceleration on a high quality true-roll putting surface. The back and through-stroke alignment guides ensure ideal acceleration and distance control, while maintaining a square face to the target.
According to Greg Shoman, vice president of marketing, SKLZ, "Ask any professional golfer and they will tell you that the money is made on the putting green, especially inside ten feet. The Accelerator Pro is ideal for dialing in line and speed from 3 ft., 5ft., and 7 ft."
The SKLZ Accelerator Pro features a continuous-gravity ball return, adjustable to the specific putt distance you are practicing. A true-roll surface closely simulates real green conditions and the hole is constructed on the upslope to teach the golfer to putt 18'' past the hole to discourage leaving putts short. The green measures 9 feet long with a stimpmeter rating of 10 when on a firm rug and 11 on a linoleum surface.
The Accelerator Pro retails for $49.99.
