SAM PuttLab suits perfectly for doing scientific research on putting. Many international Universities already use SAM PuttLab to conduct putting studies. The data can be very easily collected, and subsequent data analysis is completely automated in the PRO edition. Even group data can be analysed by key press. Different levels of analysis are available: data per stroke, data per session (averages and SD), both stroke and session data per group, and a full player data listing. Export formats allow to directly read in the results e.g. in Excel or in SPSS.
