2022 Review Flight Deck Putting

Flight Deck BASE

What an exciting year 2022 was for Flight Deck Putting highlighted by the launch of two new products!   Based on player and coaches’ feedback we added soft sorbothane impact pads to create the new flight deck TOUR SOFT.  Our customers asked for an indoor solution for the Flight Deck and we answered with our new indoor base adapter. Now train year-round with your Flight Deck indoors!

We attended 5 Professional Tour events in 2022!  This gave us a chance to visit with our current and new players to test and use our products.


Set up at putting green, TPC Potomac
Jared Wolfe

Our first event on the PGA Tour was the Wells Fargo help at TPC Potomac in May.  We reconnected with current Flight Deck users, Jared Wolfe, Trey Mullinax and Kiradech Aphibarnrat and added a few new players. This made the week very special since the first Flight Deck Putting prototype was launched 4 years ago here at TPC Potomac for the Quicken Loans National in July of 2018.






Carl Yuan
Kevin Yu
Shad Tuten


Next, we traveled to Raleigh NC for the Rex Hospital Classic on the Korn Ferry Tour in early July.  Again, we met up with some of our players who use Flight Deck and added a few new players.  Carl Yuan was the #1 points leader in 2022 and earned his PGA Tour card for 2023.  Kevin Yu also earned enough points to finish top 25 and earn a PGA Tour card!  Shad Tuten is currently coming off strong back to back top 5 finishes to start the 2023 season on the Korn Ferry Tour.





A Lim Kim
Michele Wie

A short drive down to Pinehurst for the US Women’s Open which by chance was held during the same week as the Korn Ferry event!  The beautiful Pine Needles resort hosted this major.  Past US Women’s Open Champions, A Lim Kim and Michele Wie use our Flight Deck and we finally got to meet them both in person!

Agathe Laisne
Sarah Kemp




Later in July we attended the KPMG LPGA Championship.  This was held at Congressional CC in Bethesda, MD.   Sarah Kemp and Agathe Laisne and a few others picked up our new TOUR Soft.






Darren Clarke
Rod Pampling

Finally, we finished our tour schedule with the start of the PGA Tour Champions, Schwab Cup in Richmond, VA.  Meeting and working with 2011 Open Champion, Darren Clarke and Rod Pampling was a highlight.

Ernie Els and Kirk Triplett stopped by to pick up our product!

2022 flew by, and Flight Deck now has over 50 players worldwide on all of the major Tours using our products.  Our customer and coaches support increased over 100% in 2022 so we are very excited to see what 2023 brings.  We are very appreciative of our customers and coaches and are always available to help with your needs.

We wish you many made putts in 2023!
