As illustrated by several recent PGA Tour events (most recently Brooks Koepka’s win at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational) and amateur golfing data metrics (courtesy of Shot Scope), Putting is the most important skill that amateur golfers should look to develop that can genuinely help shave strokes off their scores, lower their handicaps and (perhaps most importantly) improve your chances of winning some money of your playing partners. Indeed, while you drive for show, you putt for dough.
GOLFTEC, who has taught more than 7 million lessons and helped its students shave an average of 7 strokes off their games, has taken its technology-inspired golf lessons to the next level with the development of TECPUTT, a proprietary software dedicated to improving golfers’ short games.
TECPUTT is the result of combining several putting sensors with a comprehensive analysis app that provides real-time, actionable motion analytics, 2D & 3D synchronized graphical playback that helps instructors analyze and highlight certain changes a golfer can make with their putters to help improve their chances to go low.
TECPUTT’s software, which was developed with the help and insight of GOLFTEC’s highly-trained and reputable coaches, uses a variety of tools to evaluate student performance, including:
- Target Line Analysis – In sum, if you’re not on the target line, you’re probably not giving yourself a good chance of making any putts. Target Line Analysis displays the length, duration and accuracy of a proper putter orientation to help get students on target.
- Face & Loft – Yep, putters have loft, which needs to be appropriately adjusted for each individual’s putting stroke and the conditions they’re playing on. GOLFTEC provides a complete analysis of face, loft angles and their relationship. This is particularly noteworthy in light of the fact that GOLFTEC also provides custom club fitting. As a result, your fitter and coach can now be located under the same roof, resulting in a single team dedicated towards helping you improve.
- Putting Score – Just like Shot Scope, GOLFTEC can help provide a quantitive assessment of your progress to help ensure that your putting proficiency is trending in the right direction.
- Results – Building off the prior point, GOLFTEC can help you record, review and compare your putting performances.
Putting lessons will focus on helping golfers create a consistently repeatable putting stroke. And in case you’re worried about tracking all the different data metrics and what to focus on when you’re practicing by yourself, every lesson is recorded and automatically uploaded to the cloud, where students can review their lessons and compare performance.
In light of the fact that putting accounts for approximately 40% of your score, everyone could benefit from GOLFTEC’s Putting Lessons powered by TECPUTT. And while its certainly important to hit long and accurate drives or develop a dependable bunker shot, there really isn’t anything that’s going to help improve your game like working on your putting
