AimPoint Express at The Masters

April 12th, 2014

AimPoint Express is a new read from AimPoint Technologies developed in late 2013. It was initially designed to help 6-8 year old children learn how to aim and quickly grew into a completely new reading methodology.  There is no chart and no math. For those of you that have taken and AimPoint Fundamentals class or MidPoint Class in the past and felt it was too difficult or too time consuming, I highly encourage you to come back and take a look at AimPoint Express.

I have been teaching AimPoint Express for almost 4 months now and I can tell you the feedback has been fantastic. It has been adopted by almost all players that had previously done MidPoint/Fundamentals as it is so much easier to learn and do quickly. It has also been adopted by tour players as you’ll see in some videos here in a second.

The read isn’t designed to be as critical as MidPoint and allows for a much more input from the player to decide on a final target. AimPoint Express is designed to give you a baseline to start your read from. Another way to look at it is AimPoint Express puts you in the window of makeable reads and then allows you to make any adjustments for your touch or your gut as needed. That being said, it is shockingly accurate for how simple and easy it is to learn and apply. Like all green reading systems, the main skill is your ability to determine slope amount and AimPoint Express is no different.

If you’ve done AimPoint is the past and loved the idea but wished it was a little easier, your wish has been granted.

I will be traveling the US and the Globe teaching AimPoint Express and my schedule is filling quickly.  Short Game Secrets Schools with my partner James Ridyard also include the Express read as part of the agenda. If you are interested in either please feel free to leave a comment here or email me at I offer very fair revenue sharing rates for host professionals bringing AimPoint into their facilities. A list of upcoming classes I already have scheduled can be found here. John’s AimPoint Schedule.

Here are a couple videos from this year Masters Tournament that I hope wets your whistle about AimPoint Express.

AimPoint Express is a new read that has been developed by AimPoint Technologies to give golfers another option for their green reading without the need for the AimChart.

This Blog post from Richie3Jack gives a nice review of the new read from the perspective of someone that has already been using AimPoint MidPoint.

I hope you enjoy it.
