A mechanical innovation from Mayo aims to improve a golfer's putting.

Inventor Robert Marsh from Ballina and distributor Henry Connolly demonstrate the Putt-U-Rite golf aid. They have plans to take the machine to the USA. A number of professional golfers in the US are already trying out the new invention.

Reporter and golfing novice Deirdre Purcell tries out the machine and duly sinks six putts in a row.
