Comments from golfers like you !
Hello, my name is Britton Munoz. I am a 52-year-old visually impaired golfer. I am legally blind and my vision is very blurry. I recently purchased a L2 traditional putter and have been using it for the last four days. I am still getting used to the weight but my putting has become more accurate and improved. I actually shot in 93 on Monday and my putting helped or four-man team take first place in our Tuesday League tournament. I am so excited to get use to it and use it more. The more comfortable I get with it see how much better my short game can be. you made a great product. Additionally, the white alignment lines are great for A visually impaired golfer My coach aligns the alignment lines since the putter stands up and then I get behind and putt, You have a great product
I must attest to the great design of these putters. The physics principles behind the weight and size of this putter is so simple, yet still relatively
untouched in the golf industry. The idea behind a consistent and stable putting stroke is easy – take your hands and wrists out of the stroke and use the large muscles of your body (shoulders and arms paired with a stable lower body). The weight of the L2 forces you to only use these larger muscles of the body and the result is an effortlessly smooth and consistent “pendulum” putting stroke. I strongly recommend this putter for any golfer that struggles with the wrists breaking in the back swing. I personally love to use my practice time to pair the L2 Putter with a Dave Pelz training aid – see our
Putting Tips and Tricks. Article for more information.

Just a quick update,
I won my age division in the Arizona Golf Association Northern Amateur this pas weekend. I did not have my best ball striking but my putting was great! In fact, the second day I think I only took 12 or 13 putts on the back nine! I made about a 7 foot very fast downhill putt on the 17th hole and about a 10 foot birdie putt on 18 to win by two shots! I can safely say that my putting won me the tournament. Thanks again for your help.
sincerely yours, Dave R.
FYI: I have had 3 or 4 guys ask me for your website and I know one ordered two putters from you!
Dear Mr. Ambrose, My name is Anton. I live in Australia I bought a traditional and the longer putter from you 2/ 3 years ago I love them, transformed my game I used to hate putting and I say again I absolutely was gripped with fear with putting but having used the traditional putter I actually love and look forward to putting :) to you sir I say thank you ever so much :) Now I love your product so much that I if I can would love to have the license rights to your product in Australia as well as Asia. If not Asia at least Australia :) Hope to hear from you soon again thank you you so much.
Yours sincerely avery happy person
Hey John, Just wanted to say how much I love the L2 MOI Maxx putter with the XL grip. This has and will ever change my putting. The fact it stand upright by itself behind the ball, makes sure I am always lined up correctly is a huge plus. I never have to second guess my line. All I have to do is maintain the right back swing and follow through like a pendulum and it's as good as in. I looked at other heavy, high MOI putters, some were way too complicated with all the weights, this one is perfect and so happy I bought it. I tend to always be around the hole if it doesn't go in on long putt sand short putts within 5-7 feet, I feel I can drain them all. You have a customer for life and keep doing what your doing because its fantastic."
John, I cannot fully describe how much I enjoy putting with the L2. When I first got it three years ago and still to this day I get remarks about the size of the putter head, length of the shaft and remarks about putting from the side. Do I care…nope, not when I’m putting in birdies and pars with an occasional bogey. Used to be bogey, bogey and a par. I don’t believe there has or ever will be a putter made that always performs perfectly,but when I putt from 15 to 30 feet and consistently leave the ball within two to three feet of the hole from difficult lies I’m a happy man! Thanks for the best club in my bag.
Have been using my L2 all season now and steadily getting more confidence minimizing three putts but importantly increasing numbers of one putts per round and average putts per round by 3-4 over last year ( on a "bad " day). Led to winning club Super Senior championship, Scioto Reserve Golf Club, Powell, Ohio. The distance accuracy overtime is astonishing with the recent round range 9-42 feet (ave. proximity 19.4 feet) and second putt range 1/2-4 feet ( ave. 1.3 ft). No one is laughing anymore!
Thanks a million.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed using the L2 Traditional Putter. I have seen a dramatic improvement in my putting since using the L2. The extra wide face makes it easier to line up the putts and has improved my consistency in the direction of the putts. The weight of the head helps keep my swing slow and methodical, making my distances more accurate. The free standing feature is an added bonus for double checking my line before putting. What I appreciate most is the excellent customer service. After trying the L2 and finding that the standing position just wasn't working for me, John was very accommodating and made switching out the putters very easy.
Thanks for all your help and advice!"
"John ... I am enjoying ... funny word for putting .. using your L2. It took awhile to develop the confidence and let the putter swing freely. I play with a regular group of all men. The "snide" comments have disappeared. When I play with strangers, they comment on how close I come to the hole on long putts... I particularly like aiming and not obsessing. I used to use a ball with a line and had to continually put it down and standup and readjust the ball...I hope your business is succeeding and again am grateful for your visit and help."
"I am 69, and Saturday at the Golf Club of Dublin I shot my career round 68. 30 putts, 6 one putts for birdies the closet was 6 feet and ranged to 24 feet. My playing partners who laughed and giggled at me when I first showed up with the L2 weren't laughing Saturday. I no longer feel apprehensive facing those 6-8 footers and have extreme confidence on the long distances that I will reasonably be inside three to four feet for the easy second. All I can say is WOW and thank you for an amazing product. I will be playing on the Golf Channel and Golf Week Senior Am Tours this year and can't wait to get different results from my new and amazingly different putting approach."
"For "facing the hole" putting (hence a generalization of that methodology] there are basically two styles or processes :
1. the L2 method (pendulum/gravity feed stroke) with an implement [putter] relative to that concept
2. the face on/sidesaddle method (basically standard equipment [putter], altered to allow for standing face on.
Having practiced extensively with both, and played enough on the course with both, I believe that the L2 approach is superior. If we take away the scientific reasoning and simply focus on the putting stroke and results, the L2 method is "simpler" and all about feel & trusting the putter, whereas the face on/sidesaddle method requires the "creation" of a stroke.
In comparison it really comes down to stroking versus hitting (in the same order therefore heavy versus light). The heavier weight allows for a pendulum action where the lighter weight means feeling the positions of the stroke and "hit".....
As you know I have expressed to you in the past my difficulty with shorter putts resulting from the weight of the L2. Some days when I don't feel as good with the putter I will turn around and putt side on,[conventional], with the putter anchored to my chest for short putts. That's successful and there are 2 points of it that interest me:
1). Even from the side on position I find the gravity downswing is perfect. I just feel I turn my shoulders back and let the putter swing down.
2). I am finding less and less need to switch - i.e my results on shorter putts are improving.
That's another reason I am not going to experiment away from L2 now. I want to give it a maximum chance and hence stop changing methods.
The switch to side on for short putts is just a nice peace of mind ".
The following is an extensive review that turned into a testimonial from "until the next tee" with Alexander Toth a former mini tour player and avid gold review writer.
Variety. I think it’s a suitable adjective to describe the vast array of products through the golf industry. Consumers that support the industry have seen products in all shapes, sizes and colors. Whether it’s from a corporate giant or a newcomer to the industry. Often times, when something new and different emerges many discerning golfers won’t look at something “different” because it is simply that. Even if said product can truly help golfers improve their scores.
In 2016 I was asked to review a golf putter. That product in question was the MOI MAXX Putter from Lateral Line Putters.
Lateral Line Putters is the creation of former commercial pilot and Jefferson, Ohio native John Ambrose who I was fortunate enough to meet this past January (more on that in a bit). Mr. Ambrose is the innovator and President of Lateral Line Putters which was formed in 2007. Since the birth of the brand they have seen growth in both product development and exposure. Lateral Line Putters has seen over half of its customer base through referrals from other customers. Moreover, Mr. Ambrose has great support with his company through his wife Robyn who has run businesses over the past 20 years. Lateral Line Putters is proud of the fact that they offer the consumer a wide range of customization options. When coming up with the design of L2 putters Mr. Ambrose fell back on his applied use and knowledge of physics. The knowledge that Mr. Ambrose possesses about putting is quite significant. This was something that I would quickly learn when I met up with him and Holly G after the PGA Show at Orange Tree Golf Club (Orlando). Not only is he a USGTF Certified Instructor, a former Director of Instruction and First Tee Coach but he is a Certified Vector Green Reading Instructor.
Now that I’ve given some background and insight on the man and mind behind L2 putters let’s take a look at the model that I tested. There is a lot to consider when you look at the ideology and specifications that surround the MOI MAXX putter. The first thing that we look at is its numbers. When you place this putter into your hands right away you notice the heft. Using the chassis of a mallet putter the MOI MAXX putter measures in at 6.25″ (from Heel to Toe) and a head weight of 620 grams. The putter is center-shafted which allows for unprecedented face balance and combined with the head weight of the putter this allows the golfer to have a stroke more akin to that of an actual pendulum. This is also a by-product of the weight which also takes out the hands from the stroke. Another special feature of the MOI MAXX putter from L2 Putters is the 200 gram 16″ grip. The MOI MAXX putter also has a unique capability in that it can stand by itself. Using the rails seen in the address position golfers can line up their spot from behind the putter and adjust to hit the right spot (assuming you read the green right). If it’s windy out and the putter falls over coincidentally moving the ball don’t worry…. the new Rules of Golf has you covered (replace the ball without penalty). The rails also have another feature thrown into them and this is absolutely crucial. By using the rails, golfers can correctly align themselves to the ball. In other words your shoulders, hips and knees are correctly stacked over the ball.
When it came to the actual unboxing of my L2 MOI MAXX putter I won’t soon forget it. I opened up the box and removed the simple black and white headcover. I was actually astonished by the size and had concerns about looking down at it. Considering the average heel to toe on a putter is roughly 5″ the extra inch and a quarter was noticeable. Moreover looking at the design I was worried about the acoustics and how that would translate to feel. So photography complete I took my MOI MAXX into “The Dungeon” to roll some putts on my Big Moss. So I placed the first ball down and left the putter to stand alone while lining up the putt. Feeling pretty confident that I had lined up properly I struck my first putt. It was short as I was unsure of the initial head weight. However, the acoustics weren’t a “clank” like I thought that it would be. So I repeated my routine… dropping a second ball and lining up the putt from behind. I actually corrected my initial line by slightly twisting the putter to the left and put a stroke on it. In the hole. So I would drop another ball and go towards a different hole from a different length…in it went. Now I’m really intrigued and I heard myself state “the sonuvagun works” (have to keep it G-rated). I made stroke after stroke and putts were simply falling. Consequently, I would make a few putts without lining up the putt from behind and my line was off. It’s no wonder why I frequently lip-out a putt or miss on the high side.
My time in the basement with the MOI MAXX putter revealed a few things to me. First it found a glaring error in my eye and secondly it found and corrected a fault in my stroke. From time to time I fall victim to not being set-up square and the rails fixed this problem. You never know when you’re going to get bonus golf in the winter here in Niagara Falls (on the good side). But when there is no snow and the weather is unseasonably warm you get out and play. So off I went to St. David’s Golf Course on New Year’s Day and I would play nine holes in pretty chilly weather (35*F). I was on the first green going for birdie with the MOI MAXX putter in hand. So, I went through the routine and lined up the putt. Making a slight correction of the line and birdied my first hole of 2017. A nice start. I would actually birdie my first two holes of the year and I really look at the MOI MAXX as the root cause. My putting continued to be very good for the duration of the round en route to an opening 33 for 2017. My confidence in this putter was confirmed. Post-round I made a video stating that maybe due to the outside temperatures the putter proved to be more “tinky” than I had initially thought. But this isn’t meant to be construed as intrusive.
In a conversation with Mr. Ambrose I had brought this up and John took it to heart. Not in a bad way like you might assume but he took it as a challenge. Mr. Ambrose isn’t one to sit back on his laurels and just believe that his putter is great the way that it is. Instead, he looks to improve even more. So when we got together that day at Orange Tree Golf Club he had a newer updated version with him for me to try. With one little addition to his design Mr. Ambrose addressed and fixed the acoustics issue. The updated version of the MOI MAXX was more muted, has an additional alignment aid (this one horizontal) and also featured a larger grip. This felt even better in my hands and any semblance of getting “handsy” with the stroke became null and void. We spent a lot of time together that morning and he also showed me a couple of cool features. About halfway back the sole slopes upwards. He showed me that to maximize immediate forward roll sole the MOI MAXX using the slope. This adds loft and imparts immediate forward roll. Also, due to the nature of the MOI MAXX and it’s resistance to twisting this is the most forgiving putter on the market. The weighting on the heel and toe saw putts purposely struck off of the heel and toe result in putts that felt like they were off of the sweet spot (the sweet spot is 3.5″)Truth be told, I left Florida with an entirely new putting stroke methodology.
Folks, have an open mind. If you’re in the market for a product that will help your game and lower your scores then look no further than L2 Putters and its MOI MAXX model. Maybe “size does matter” after all. I have long been “pro-heavy” and the MOI MAXX simply reinforces that belief further and simply holes more putts.
