    I bought one and have used it for about a month. My scores dropped from the 90’s to the 80’s.
    I am a fan.

    I think this is sound advice, but I am not sure the device is necessary, or even if it would work. I say this as someone who currently has this problem. Intuitively, I already knew that I was (sometimes) not striking the ball squarely in the middle of the face, at the proper angle of attack and on the proper path. Watching the video helped me to see how I may have managed to hit these nasty little squirters. I had thought they were probably shanks (and some of them might be). One benefit of the device is that it would definitely show whether a squirter was a shank or a toe hit or a thin hit. One problem would appear to be that the ball that is used might not sit down like a normal golf ball. I seem to have this problem mostly when the ball is lying down in relatively heavy grass/rough. I can’t say it never happens with a good lie, but it is mostly bad lies. I also have it (sometimes) with bunker shots. I either take way too much sand and don’t get the ball out or not enough sand resulting in the dreaded 50 yarder from a green side bunker. Obviously all of these shots are score killers. If you get right next to the green in 2 on a 400 yard hole and then take 4 to get up and down, it sucks all the fun out of the game. I would be interested in any ideas on this. My usual approach with this kind of thing is the brute force trial and error method in which I just hit lots of shots until something clicks.

    Looks like a great way to practice to me, especially as it gets colder and there is little if any outdoor practice nor playing. Would go well combined with indoor ball striking into a net.

    Can you practice on grass the the Impact Improver or only off of a mat/carpet?
