SAM Putting Instructor Certification Level 1 (240 minutes)

Understanding how Tour Pros putt – The 6 Fundamental Aspects of Putting

The SAM Putting Instructor certification program is the most comprehensive scientific approach to putting ever developed. The 3 certification levels cover the complete range from the physics of putting, measurement and analysis of a putting stroke, PGA Tour data samples based on the 6 fundamental aspects of putting, as well as scientific basics of motor learning and motor control. Also included are the practical aspects of putting instruction and training concepts based on the hierarchy of movement. Certified SAM Putting Instructors will receive a document and will be listed on the SAM web page.

The objectives of the SAM Level1 certification seminar are amongst others:

  • Professional use of SAM PuttLab
  • The 6 fundamentals of putting and the PGA Tour data sample
  • Evaluating the 6 fundamentals in your students data
  • Basic PuttLab training
  • Basic Putter fitting

The certification Level1 seminar introduces into the concept of the 6 fundamental aspects of putting. The attendees will receive in depth “hands on” training in the use of SAM PuttLab for measuring and analysing putting, including interpretation of the results reports and the use of putting performance profiles to tailor subsequent training sessions. The seminar will also present a step by step putter fitting protocol. Additionally the latest software enhancements are demonstrated.

If you want to learn all about SAM putting analysis and putter fitting, then sign up to become a certified SAM Putting Instructor Level1.

Who should participate? Instructors, coaches and club fitters.

SAM Putting Workshop (180 minutes)

SAM PuttLab Analysis & Training for the 3 Putting Fundamentals

In this hands-on teaching and coaching workshop the inventor of SAM PuttLab and putting expert Dr. Christian Marquardt will demonstrate how to use SAM PuttLab in a professional training session. General concepts of using data inside of training lessons will be discussed. After measuring some of the participants it is demonstrated how to evaluate a first individual performance profile as well as how to interpret the results in more detail. Potential strengths and weaknesses will be identified. If necessary also some theoretical background will be presented during the lessons. Based on the concept of “hierarchy of movement” the specific aspects to work on will be decided. The live teaching will cover the 3 most important functional aspects in putting which are “Setup”, “Direction” and “Distance”. Preferred drills will be presented and the use of training aids will be discussed.

  • Live hands-on teaching workshop
  • Demonstration of professional putting lessons
  • Data analysis and interpretation
  • Tour data and individual performance profiles
  • Areas for improvement
  • Use of training aids
