The Putting Arc … is an Ellipse
The Putting Arc works because it guides the putter head in pure planar rotation about an axis which passes through the golfer’s spine, at the T3 vertebrae between the shoulders (the dashed line in fig. 1).
This means that the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders all stay connected throughout the putting stroke. The Putting Arc has radial lines on its top. This important feature shows the correct clubface alignment at each point in the stroke. This alignment is just as important as the clubhead path.
