One Day or Two Day Putting School With Fred Griffin

Experience a putting school with our Academy Director, Fred Griffin, primarily focusing on techniques that will improve your putting immediately. These schools will utilize the SAM Putt Lab and the AimPoint Green-Reading system to take your game to the next level. 

The intelligent SAM PuttWare automatically evaluates the putting strokes, calculates all relevant parameters, - e.g. rotation, acceleration, swing duration or impact, - and graphically displays the results. The data reveals precise information on how to improve your game, e.g. club face angle or sweet-spot, and how to tailor individual training strategies.

Benefits of SAM PuttLab:

  •     Easy to use technology
  •     Evaluation of putting technique and consistency
  •     Training modules for improvement of specific aspects
  •     Immediate display of results after each stroke
  •     Direct access to all relevant putting parameters
  •     Data comparison with performance of PGA Tour players

The AimPoint Green-Reading system teaches:

  •     The 3 primary green shapes and how they affect the break of the putt
  •     Exactly how much break to play for any putt within 20 feet of the hole
  •     How break changes as green speed changes
  •     How to estimate break very accurately using fall lines and drainage areas
  •     How to find the Zero Lines
  •     Eye and putter face alignment
  •     Understanding green architecture and its implications on putting
  •     Aiming and alignment
  •     Optical illusions and slope perception
  •     Common green-reading misconceptions and mistakes
