GOLFERS are being sought to trial a new training aid, which inventors believe will improve their short game.
The cutting-edge WP1 training aid is being developed by Bendigo-based start-up WedgePro.
The fledgling business was last year named the inaugural winner of La Trobe Accelerator, a program that aims to foster start-ups in Victoria.
Director Jamie Ward said the WedgePro aid was designed to help golfers of all standards.
He added the time had come to put the aid to the test, in conjunction with La Trobe University’s sports science faculty.
“We will take anyone with a bit of golf experience – any range of handicaps, any range of abilities,” Ward said.
“We believe anyone right up to the pro-ranks can use this aid.
“What sets this device apart is most aids teach technique, we’ve incorporated distance control.
“You can fine tune your game at 15 metres, or you can fine tune your game at 45 metres.”
Ward said WP1 differed to most other training aids, which aimed to either help golfers with their long game or putting.
