PHOENIX -- How many times have you had a brilliant idea for a new product, invention or business venture, but had no clue how to get it off the ground?

Well, one Valley man has turned his idea into reality. It's called Train Your Aim, a golf putting aid that can help improve your game.

David Keller is a Valley resident who works at the Wigwam. When he first got the idea for Train Your Aim, he scribbled it onto a post-it note, then hired a retired engineer off of Craigslist for $100 to draw his design.

He then found a plastics manufacturer in Tempe to create his invention, and a short time later, his first prototype was born.

Train Your Aim is designed to "nip your yips," and help golfers putt with more accuracy.  The putting tool  fits in your pocket or behind your ear to go anywhere.

"You can use it on your driver, your irons. It's great for chipping," says Keller. "It's great for kids, for beginners when they're just learning."

Here's how the device works: Slide the two pieces together like a cross. The pointer aims either way for lefties and righties. Clip it on your putter shaft, sliding the pointer until it is over the ball. Line the arrow up to the hole or intermediate target for a break in the green and putt away. 

"Aim at your target line," he says. "You keep your head down; you don't come out of it, like a lot of players do."

Train Your Aim sells for $9.99.
