The LSU golf program installed their new SAM PuttLab in December and it looks like the results were the effort. For the first time in NCCA Division I history, the men’s and women’s individual champions came from the same school – LSU.
LSU freshman Austin Ernst took the women’s title in Bryan, Texas, on May 21. Then John Peterson won on the men’s tournament on June 2.
Both teams obviously put the SAM PuttLab to good use. The SAM PuttLab is an analysis and training system based on an accurate ultrasound measurements. It analyzes the 28 most important parameters of your putting stroke and displays the results in easy to understand graphic reports.
SAM PuttLab parent company Science & Motion spokesman Jef Carr said, “We’re very proud to be a part of the winning LSU Tigers program, the LSU golf program installed their new SAM PuttLab in December and seem to have put it to very good use. The coaching staff took advantage of a coaches training day SAM staff member Glen Coombe shortly after receiving their Sam and the results have been hard to argue with. The SAM PuttLab is a perfect addition to the outstanding training facility the Tigers have to work from.”
Carr added, “We feel the SAM PuttLab is the first technology that should be considered for any collegiate program. SAM PuttLab is completely portable and can be used both indoors and out. From putting analysis, to putt training, as well as putter fitting SAM PuttLab helps collegiate programs to reach their highest levels. We’ve proven the SAM PuttLab generates results. From winning team results just days after receiving a SAM (Clemson University) to winning individual honors at the highest level (LSU Tigers) SAM technology leads the way. Collegiate teams looking for the winning edge are choosing SAM PuttLab.”
