NEW: SAM BallTracker


Track your ball performance

SAM BallTracker is the next revolution of Science&Motion for professional putt training. The system uses a calibrated high-speed camera mounted above the putting area.

SAM BallTracker is a seamless extension to SAM PuttLab and offers a complete ball performance analysis, including multiple targets, integration with platforms, auto-calibration on breaking putts, visualization of the optimal putt, detailed result reports and 3D replay for training.

Main features

  • Putting launch monitor
  • Real ball traces and shot pattern (accuracy and consistency)
  • Complete ball performance (speed drop, skid distance, roll ratio, effective stimp)
  • Display of aim spot, ideal path and comparison to actual putt
  • For straight and breaking putts (adaptive to any break and pitch)
  • Detection of flexible target positions
  • Automatic integration with SAM PuttLab

Applications of SAM BallTracker


New aera of putt training

The comprehensive ball performance analysis and the realistic 3D replay of the rolling ball will not only bring the quality of your training sessions to the next level. The intuitive feedback of starting speed and direction, ideal putt, slowest and fastest possible putt or shot pattern is perfect also for the independent practice of a client.


  • Add-on to SAM PuttLab putter data
  • Putter fitting
  • Ball performance testing
  • Green reading
  • Break putt training
  • Automatic integration with putting platforms

Tracking on straight putts

Early and true roll are essential to increase your score on short and intermediate putts. Optimize your putting performance with detailed feedback on launch conditions and ball performance parameters such as Skid Phase, Speed Drop or Roll Ratio!

The resulting shot pattern shows your performance relative to direction and speed of the putts.

Tracking on breaking putts

Learning to correctly read and play breaking putts is often a problem due to a lack of accurate feedback and the multiple sources of errors. The SAM BallTracker exactly shows for each putt where you went wrong. Additionally to all ball performance parameters the software shows the ideal putt, the slowest and fastest possible putt, and differences of your putts relative to the optimal solution.

SAM BallTracker data analysis

Results can be displayed in SAM PuttLab reports as well as in SAM 3D-Putt.

Table on ball performance (optimal for fitters):

True ball speed curves*:

*This is true data (not a simple scheme diagram as other tracking systems), and there is a constant decrease over time in the roll phase corresponding to the stimp deceleration. The grey area is the skid phase. The dashed lines are the skid phase. The dotted lines are an optional simulation of the path after collision or after holing a putt. You can also precisely calculate where the ball would have gone if the putt leaves to monitored putting area (normal 4-5 m length).
