PGA Champion Jeff Sluman improved putting performance from 33rd place (2015) to 1st (2016) with Blast Golf
(Carlsbad, Calif., – May 25, 2016) – Blast Motion, an industry innovator focused on elevating player performance with its swing and stroke analysis technologies, today announced its newest golf ambassador, PGA Tour Professional, Jeff Sluman. Jeff has had notable success as a professional golfer, earning six PGA Tour and six Champions Tour victories, along with 150+ PGA Tour and Champions Tour top 10 finishes. Jeff credits the Blast technology with helping him improve his putting mechanics, allowing him to improve his putting average from 33rd place (2015) to 1st (2016) in the PGA Tour Champions stats.
“I was first introduced to the Blast technology at Tucson in 2015. At the time, I was having problems with my putting. The human eye couldn’t really tell what I was doing wrong,” said Jeff Sluman, PGA Tour Professional. “With Blast Golf, I was able to see the data immediately after making contact with the ball. I could now see that my back stroke was rotating the putter open 13 degrees and I wasn’t getting it back to square. Now after using Blast Golf, I’m down to less than 5 degrees of back stroke rotation and I’m able to square the putter up at impact. This allows me to make more putts.”
“It’s been rewarding to see an experienced player of Jeff’s caliber improve his putting fundamentals,” said Michael Bentley, founder, Blast Motion. “Watching him go from 33rd place to 1st place in his putting average on tour really speaks to the benefits of Blast technology. For both amateurs and pros alike, small putting changes can result in big improvements in their score.”
