Using the SAM PuttLab training mode offers you the ability to customize individual training strategies and improve specific aspects of the putting stroke, for example, the putter face angles, face rotation, swing path, impact spot, swing time duration or stroke rhythm (see “SAM PuttLab putting parameter” below).
After customizing your individual training strategy with SAM PuttLab you can adapt your training to it and practice specific aspects of your putting movement (e.g. club face rotation). After each stroke you get immediate feedback of the results. You can directly see the difference compared to the last strokes and discover how close they came to the ideal. This ingenious feedback guarantees immediate and lasting training success.
