PuttLink to showcase award winning connected smart golf ball with return to PGA Show

PuttLink announced today that it plans to exhibit at the 2024 PGA Show, Jan. 23-26, in Orlando, FL. Puttlink will showcase its Smart Ball, winner of a Best New Product award at last year’s event. Demos of the ball and associated app will include measurements of speed and distance of putts, Stimp reading, and emerging compatibility with Apple Watch (Booth #2006). 

“We are thrilled to return to the PGA Show where we will showcase the PuttLink Smart Ball, fulfilling the promise of the product award won at the PGA Show last year,” said Brian Heaton, inventor and co-founder.  “The distance and speed measuring capabilities of this connected golf ball have been incorporated into a set of drills designed to help you improve your game. We think you’ll spend more time practicing, it will be more effective and you’ll have fun while doing so,” said Heaton. “Our ultimate goal is to get more people excited to be on the practice green working on their putting.” 


Putting is known as the “game within the game” accounting for up to half the strokes of an average player’s score.  Yet, when it comes to golf practice, putting is often neglected. Players don’t know how to approach it, and when they do, incorporating accurate speed and distance measurements and tracking results over time has been problematic, until now.  

Introducing PuttLink Smart Ball, a golf ball which connects wirelessly to your mobile device, sending data from the ball to the app as you putt.  This includes true roll distance, make percentage, cup entry speed, feet of putts made, and even Stimp or green speed reading. 

PuttLink Smart Ball was designed with feedback from top teaching pros, and includes as set of progression drills that can be followed in the app. In Drills Mode, start with accuracy and distance control for different length putts.  Then move on to making putts at firm or soft pace.  As you progress, take on the Slope Drill to train for various green slopes. Track your putting performance and progress week-to-week with stat views.   

In addition to the drills, the Smart Ball can be used to measure the Stimp or green speed, providing even more valuable insight to improve your golf game. 

Practice smarter, get better, and have fun with PuttLink Smart Ball!
