Imagine a huge 5-point Star standing upright and aimed to the sky. While the two bottom points stand like legs equally balanced on the ground, aim the top point to the heavens, planet or moon.  The outstretched edges on either side are online perpendicular to the same point. Does this sound like a dream?  It was.

With the continued success of Star Putter, the putting tool, we need funding to expand our product line and raise awareness in the golf market.  We need resources to continue to educate golfers at every skill level, as to how the physics of a 5 pointed Star can help them improve their ability to aim correctly and enhance their golf game. These claims hold true for right handed and left handed golfers alike, for beginning and novice golfers, and finally for collegiate and touring professionals.

Production stage:

Over the past 30 years, there has been very little improvements to the game of golf. The average golfer still shoots the same score as they did in the 70's, 80's, and 90's. No product until Star Putter, the putting tool, has ever shown the user, how to aim. If we take those attributes and apply them to the golf swing, we see the potential for helping golfers understand the laws of spin like draw, hook, fade, slice, and how to achieve and repeat such shots.

Through the Star design, we can expand our product line by producing a Star for chipping, A Star for pitching and bunker,  and more importantly a larger size for full swing. The Star design with intended path to face markings, as with the Star Putter, will show golfers how to hit different shots at will. It is simple, intuitive, and works every time.

Star Putter, the putting tool is proven to be a viable device for putting. The best teachers of the game like Chuck Cook agree, that the attributes of a Star are fundamentally correct when applied to golf, and it is not just putting, form does follow function. 

We are taking the design of the Star and applying them to full-swing.

Risks and challenges

The risk and challenges.
1. Star Putter, the putting tool is a proven viable product but as a single product, it has had limits in placement for retail and distribution. Most product lines have multiple products lending a greater footprint in the market. With additional products, we will increase our placement and awareness in the retail markets while increasing distribution for ASI and OEM markets.
2. The retail price for the Stars are under $30 individually, so with a new "product" offering, an increase of retail $75 - $100 makes placement more desirable and profitable for, wholesalers, retailers and commercials.
3. Because there is nothing on the market like a Star, awareness of the product and the learning curve of how the physics work with golf are slow, but, however constant. The benefits and features of the Star are learned and practiced through grass roots marketing, repetition, and instruction.
