Final results of the first ever Putt18 World Pro League.
The inaugural Putt18 World Pro League season has concluded with Matt Ansley of New Zealand taking the title.
Matt was the wire-to-wire winner of the league with a tremendous display on the Putt18 Golf Putting Game Mat.
The Putt18 game mat consists of six tee-off boxes and three target score zones. Players must hit their balls from each of the tee boxes in turn aiming at the Par-4, Par-5 and Par-3 targets while avoiding fairways, bunkers and water hazards that carry penalty points. After the 18 shots have been played you tot up your score to see what you've shot for your round.
