The testimonials of many Instructors and PGA Tour Pros attest the unique abilities of SAM PuttLab.

“One of my favorite tools for analysis”

“SAM PuttLab has been one of my favorite tools for analysis, evaluation, and research of putting strokes over the past 10 years. The accuracy, consistency, and ease of the user interface are the key factors that set this ultra-sound technology apart from other technologies.

DAVID ORR – Founder Flatstick Academy

“It’s helping players get better results”

“As soon as I had worked with the system myself, I realized what an innovative and significant piece of equipment it is. … Knowing exactly what is happening during the putting stroke can mean a significant and important change of approach to helping coach golfers at all levels. Ultimately it’s about helping players get better results.

KEITH WILLIAMS – PGA European Tour Coach

“A level of precision unlike any other technology”

“The SAM PuttLab provides insight into the putting stroke with a level of precision unlike any other technology. The successful use of the system in my work with PGA tour players confirmed the high efficiency of this excellent feedback tool.”

DAVID LEADBETTER – World Renowned Teaching Professional

“A great help with those things even a coach cannot see”

“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.”

PADRAIG HARRINGTON – 3x Major Championship Winner

“Some were totally enthusiastic about it!”

“We had a training camp in the south of Italy. The machine was well accepted by the players…some were totally enthusiastic about it!”

FEDERICA DASSU – Mentor for Italian Women’s Golf

“My putting stats have improved enormously”

“After attending the Putting Academy my putting stats have improved enormously. I now average about 30 putts and make more birdies in a round than I ever have. I truly recommend you have your stroke analyzed by the SAM PuttLab.”

JOANNE MILLS – Ladies European Tour Winner

“The only way to cure the Yips”

“So how do you create a process to diagnose and treat the yips – a problem many players won’t even admit they have? That’s where the Super SAM machine comes in. A team of German scientists and teaching professionals figured that the only way to cure the yips was to first discover exactly when, how and how much they happen in a stroke. That’s what their Super SAM machine does.”

HANK HANEY – Best known for coaching Tiger Woods


What the Experts say about SAM BalanceLab

“Enables us to identify exactly what happens during the swing”

“The SAM BalanceLab is an extremely innovative tool that allows us to see the golfer’s weight distribution at address but also within the motion of the swing. It is extremely difficult to see with the naked eye or even with slow motion cameras. The system enables us to identify exactly what is happening during the swing and where the faults might lie which is of great benefit to our clients.

STEVE NORTH – Director of Instruction St Andrews Links Golf Academy

“Most accurate piece of equipment on the market”

“As someone who has been trained in Biomechanics and over 40 years of teaching experience, I can honestly say that the Balance Lab is the most accurate piece of equipment on the market today. It not only analyzes the ground reaction forces accurately but also arms you the teacher to interpret the information efficiently.

DR JIM SUTTIE – 2000 National PGA Teacher of the Year

“It’s amazing!”

“I think the SAM BalanceLab force plate is the only piece of coaching technology I could never give up for teaching the full swing. It is amazing.”

STUART LEONG – Manager / PGA Learning Centre Australia

“The BalanceLab has allowed me to see the invisible”

“The SAM BalanceLab has allowed me to see the invisible. Things that I would not be able to see on video or with the naked eye are now very apparent to me. An incredible piece of equipment to understand why people move the way they do. My only regret is I didn’t have it 25 years ago.

MARTIN HALL – 2008 PGA of American National Teacher of the Year

“Thanks to the SAM PuttLab, I moved from 177th in putting to #1 on the PGA tour for greens hit in regulation in 2008. The SAM PuttLab documents truth while giving me the confidence of what I feel conforms to “right on” point. It supersedes what the best instructor’s “eye” could possibly visualize. The SAM PuttLab is the MRI of putting. Thank you Science and Motion.”

Bob Tway
US PGA Tour Professional

“I have experienced tremendous training successes with PGA Tour Professionals as well as amateurs. The SAM System is a fantastic opportunity to generate further revenue. Putter fitting with the SAM System is easy and fast!”

Uwe Tapperzhofen
SAM PGA Tour Coach / European Tour

“…its efficacy can be judged by the fact that Padraig Harrington, No. 8 in the world rankings and one of the great putters, has bought one for his practice green at home.”

David Davies
Journalist / in “The Guardian”

“I did some work with Joanne Mills from the Ladies European Tour in the winter on the SAM PuttLab. After about 15 years on Tour she is currently having one of her best years. She is in the top 20. 6th in birdies on tour and is currently joint 6th in the British Open.”

Richard Drake
The Putting Academy

“From amateurs to tour players, I am amazed how easy it is to pinpoint problems in ones putting stroke. From a simple assessment to teaching, nothing comes close to the accuracy and consistency that your machine displays. I have been able to modify and sell hundreds of putters utilizing your SAM system.”

Travis Fussel
President Fussel Putters, Inc

“Since using the PuttLab on a regular basis, due to the positive feedback from the software on my technique skill level, I have found that my self-confidence on the greens has increased substantially, leading automatically to better results. Fantastic piece of training equipment! As Dave Pelz says, “the key to improvement is accurate, reliable and immediate feedback”. There can be no better tool than the PuttLab to provide the feedback!”

Geoff Hewitt
PuttLab user / Belgium

“With the Balance Lab I was able to improve Sam’s weight distribution at address, which was favoring his left heel and right toe. The improved balance improved his hip position and spine angle, helping his long game and putting stroke. Before the posture change the putter was cutting across the line, the blade was held off and the strike was from the toe. After the posture change and some practice on the Putt Lab the hit was more central, the line of the stroke was straighter and face of the club was squarer at impact. Sam lead stage 2 of Tour School for the first couple of rounds, in stage 3 he shot a 60 in the first round which equaled the European Tour Record and held the lead for most of the tournament. He finished one shot back after 6 rounds.”

The Professional’s name is Sam Hutsby. Former world no 2 amateur. Lost his European Tour Card at the end of the 2009 season and was beginning to struggle on the Challenge Tour.
