Science and Motion Sports PuttLab in use at Tennessee's Game Improvement Golf

In October 2012, Game Improvement Golf purchased and was trained in using the Science and Motion Sports (SAM) PuttLab. The SAM PuttLab is the world's leading putting analysis and training system. It measures the 28 most important elements of a putting stroke - a golfer can immediately see the areas where he needs to improve. Then, in the SAM PuttLab training mode, a golfer can get visual and audible feedback to lock in improvements to his stroke.

Jerry Williams - the Director of Golf at the Oak Ridge Country Club in Oak Ridge, TN - has had outstanding success as a result of using the SAM PuttLab:

"Personally, I have been through the SAM PuttLab analysis on two separate occasions, and the feedback has proven very valuable. After my first session (last November) I hosted a group of East Tennessee and PGA Tour professionals at my club. ON that day I had the low score of the day with a career best 62, which included 10 birdies. If you haven't taken advantage of this technology I highly recommend that you do - it will change the way you putt."

This 2013 men's U.S. Open winner owns a SAM PuttLab, and uses it to work on and improve his putting stroke. Tony Wright is the only professional club fitter in Tennessee who owns and uses the SAM PuttLab. Tony is also the only Level 1 Certified SAM PuttLab Putting Instructor in Tennessee. Glen Coombe - "The Putting Doctor" and the Eastern USA SAM PuttLab representative - has this to say about Tony's putting improvement qualifications:

"Tony has demonstrated a keen interest in becoming one of the best putting instructors in the area through his continuing education with Science and Motion Sports. I have spent time with Tony in person, and have helped him to progress through and beyond our Level 1 Certification. He has a firm grasp on the cause and effect relationships of putting analysis, putting instruction, and putter fitting. I recommend Tony to any interested golfer be they professional or amateur."
