Kevin Kisner was spotted using an eye-catching training aid by the name of Chango Paws by K-Motion while on the practice putting green at last week's RSM Classic on the PGA Tour.

@kevin_kisner working on putting using Chango Paws. This looks like it will test balance and stability of the legs and core. I would like to try this to test it’s worth. Think it be good education for golfers that are very unstable in the stroke.

Hat tip to specialist putting coach James Jankowski (@JJGolfPutting) for picking this one up on Instagram this week.
"This training aid allows Kisner to work on balance and stability in his stroke," Jankowski told GolfMagic.
"Wearing this means your legs and core must stay very stable whist the upper body moves."
Taking a look at the description of the Chango Paws training aid on the K Motion website, and it's quite surprising Bryson DeChambeau hasn't yet got involved with it. Well, maybe he already has.
The description reads: "Training with Chango Balance Paws helps with proprioception along with your body's ability to react appropriately to external forces, also known as reaction time."
To use the product, you simply velcro the nylon strap around the top of your foot, ensuring that the half-round spheres are positioned directly under your golf shoes.
The new putting aid would appear to be doing all the right things for Kisner on the greens right now, as he ranks eighth in Strokes Gained Putting on the PGA Tour this season (1.140).
The same sadly can't be said for the rest of Kisner's game, however, as the World No.35 has picked up just one top-30 finish in his first four starts of the new 2019/20 PGA Tour season.
