How a high school four-putt planted the seed for one of golf’s hottest training aids

Kantor’s Perfect Putting Mat

Oren Kantor (BSBA ’10, MSE ’11) suffered an indelible humiliation as a senior on his high school golf team. After hitting an overzealous first putt that sailed past the hole, followed by a subsequent stroke that was struck too timidly leaving himself three feet shy of the target, his yips continued with a lip out before he finally found the back of the cup on attempt number four. His team lost the match by one stroke.

“But if Kantor, who went on to study marketing and entrepreneurship at the University of Florida, hadn’t been scarred by that costly double bogey, he never would have started Perfect Practice and invented the Perfect Putting Mat,” writes Mike Dojc of Forbes.
