Improve Putting with a Stabilized Swing

Want to know a way to improve your putting with a stabilized platform? Did you ever build a children’s swing set? Let’s see; you’ll need two A frames, a pole between, eye bolts, some chain, and a seat. The eye bolt is the fulcrum of the swing set. When a kid (or you) jump on […]
