Guidelines for Laser Optics v.I
General steps to assess aim on a straight putt :
Advanced – repeat the same process for breaking putts. Have your player identify their aim point, whether a spot located in their perceived path, or a linear spot near the hole (example, two inches left of hole).
Recalibration – Occasionally, the accuracy of the laser may be altered due to a strong jarring, such as dropping it laser side down on concrete. The laser can easily be recalibrated. First, remove the lens cap and check to see if the brass leader is loose. If so, there are two parts that can be tightened. First, unscrew the aluminum base and remove it from the barrel. Next, tighten the bottom aluminum housing. Re-insert and tighten the laser into the barrel. If the laser is still inaccurate, using the four #10 set screws on the sides of the laser housing. To move the laser to the left, unscrew the front left side set screw ¼ turn and tighten the front right side set screw ¼ turn. Repeat until you achieve accuracy. I use a 4’ builders T-square. Square the T to a wall, square the laser against the same surface and run the laser up and down the edge of the 4’ ruler. Very easy and very accurate.

*Note: Pipe tripod provides more versatility for controlling characteristics of the solid line projection.
Here is an interesting notion… Accuracy and distance control are key factors to making putts. The straighter a putt, accuracy trumps distance control. The more break, distance control trumps accuracy.
