Getting Started with the Stroke Metre Make strokes to match the same colour block on both ends Hit putts with ball on the Stroke Metre Place ball on the green beside the Stroke Metre Add the tees to hear and feel The Stroke Metre helps you create the proper stroke length - see it, feel it... repeat. A balanced stroke - equal length back and through - eliminates jerky motions coming into the ball. It also prevents a stroke that is decelerating into impact. Both of these tendencies create inconsistent distance control. The goal of the Stroke Metre is to help you develop a stroke that is the same length back and through, at a consistent rate of acceleration. The colour blocks on the board let you see equal distances back and through. Simply swing the putter to the same colour on both sides of the ball, practising different distance putts.
