Nov 2019. The 2019 US Science&Motion (SAM) certification seminars and putting workshops conducted by SAM founder Christian Marquardt turned out to be a great success. The seminars and workshops were hosted in the prominent locations Pine Needles (North Carolina), Sleepy Hollow (New York) and Don Parsons Golf (California).
More than 30 local Golfpros and club fitters attended the morning Level1 certifications and hands-on teaching workshops in the afternoons which covered professional use of the SAM PuttLab system, the fundamentals of putting, Tour data and individual performance profiles and many more aspects of putting.
“A big thanks to David Orr, Kevin Sprecher and Preston Combs for perfectly organizing everything,” Christian Marquardt said after the courses. “And due to the extremely positive feedback we already think about coming back next year for Level2 seminars.”
That’s what PGA Teaching Pro Mark Komives said after our event at Pine Needles:
