What is a “SAM PuttLab”
SAM PuttLab is an analysis and training system based on an accurate ultrasound measurements. It analyzes the 28 most important parameters of your putting stroke and displays the results in easy to understand graphic reports. Discover your individual strengths and weaknesses for a better and more efficient training.
Within seconds the system gives you an individual feedback on your putting strokes. The analysis reveals even the smallest details of your movements and allows you to develop improvements and training strategies. SAM PuttLab utilizes ultrasound sensory analysis and therefore is far more exact than any other similar system on the market.
Together with international PGA Tour Pros the scientists of Science&Motion have developed SAM PuttLab for golfers of all handicaps - guaranteeing high efficiency and usability of the device. To date already 26 European and American Tour Professionals and several European national teams trust the capability of Science&Motion's PuttLab. PuttLab is a system with ascertainable success .

Padraig Harrington (No.8 in the world rankings) - 24 October 2004 to "The Guardian":
You can have good weeks putting badly, and vice versa, but this machine is a great help with those things even a coach cannot see.
How does it work?
When putting smallest movements can decide everything. SAM PuttLab uses state of the art ultrasound technology and specific mathematic algorithms for precise measurement of the relevant putting parameters. SAM Puttlab comprises the SAM MotionAnalyzer (Hardware) and the SAM PuttWare (Software).
For the measurement a light sensor triplet is attached to the club shaft. The measurement device (MotionAnalyzer) then transfers the registered movement data to a computer via USB.
The intelligent SAM PuttWare automatically evaluates the putting strokes, calculates all relevant parameters - e.g. rotation, acceleration, swing duration or impact - and graphically displays the results. The data reveal precise information on how to improve your game, e.g club face angle or sweetspot, and how to tailor individual training strategies.
Benefits of SAM PuttLab :
- Easy to use technology, set up and application.
- Automatic measurements and analysis.
- Clear graphical display and setting.
- Evaluation of putt technique and consistency.
Specific training – significant improvement.
After tailoring your individual training strategy with SAM PuttLab you can adapt your training to it. No useless trial and error - just use the training mode of SAM PuttLab. You can practise specific aspects of your putting movement (e.g club face rotation). After each stroke you get an immediate feedback of the result.

Immediate feedback after each stroke!
You can directly see the difference compared with your last strokes and read out how close you came to the ideal. This ingenious feedback guarantees immediate and lasting training success.
- Training modules for improvement of specific aspects.
- Immediate display of results after each stroke.
- Direct access to all relevant putt parameters.
- Data comparison with performance of PGA Tour players.
Training and playing.
After the training you can check what you have learned: Use the game mode of SAM PuttLab. But you can also directly use the game for your training and you will have a lot of fun with your putt training. Sensational success with youngsters of several national teams prove us right.
Actually SAM PuttLab provides three games, two "sweet spot" games and a "square face at path" game. More games are under development.

Success and fun guaranteed!
Precise analysis of your strokes
The results of the Putting strokes registered with the SAM PuttLab are displayed in concise graphic reports. A variety of graphic reports are delivered with the system. Each of the 28 parameters measured can be included into the clearly presented data display.
The following graphic reports are provided by SAM PuttLab:
Immediate feedback after each stroke
The results for each stroke are immediately displayed on the screen. This KR (knowledge of result) feedback has proven to be the most successful training method in learning skilled movements. The PRO training reports comprise 10 different report screens. Switching between the different views is possible at any time.
Printouts and PDF-files – the perfect processing of your results
Results for several putting strokes registered in a measurement or training session can be displayed in multi page print reports. The colored print reports combine display of average data values, distribution of single strokes, and scoring of putting technique and movement consistency. Print reports can be inspected on the screen or printed out with high quality resolution. Additionally the reports can be exported to PDF files - this enables the coach to archive the results or to send the reports directly to the customer via email.
Compare your performance with the data of PGA players
The multi-competence reports summarize the performance of a player for each parameter in colored bar charts. This data presentation is tricky: By comparing your movement competence profile with the benchmark range the strengths and weaknesses of your putting are directly appearant. The benchmarks were calculated based on the data of more than 100 PGA Tour players. The multi-competence profiles also allow to directly compare the performance using different putters and make putter fitting am
