Below is an excerpt from a post from our SPi instructor - Ed Robertson - from Applied Golf Technology at St. Andrews Links Golf Academy.

Now that AGT is an authorised SeeMore putter fitting centre and both Ed and Martin have passed the SeeMore Bronze Instructor / Fitter test, we wanted some proof that the SeeMore system definitely has the potential to improve a player’s putting stroke. At St Andrews Links Golf Academy we have a SAM Puttlab analyser which measures 28 parameters of the putting stroke. We decided to put the SeeMore system of putting to the test, using SAM Puttlab. The results blew us away.
First we had to find a volunteer who was unhappy with their putting. We soon found an ideal candidate and will tell you who it is at the end of this report. The plan was to use SAM to analyse the player’s current putting stroke then to compare this with the SeeMore system of putting using a fitted SeeMore putter.
The player chosen generally sets up with his putter in the middle of his stance and his eye line directly over the ball. His current putter stroke is driven by arms and hands rather than by simply rocking the shoulders with firm wrists. He complained that his putter always seemed to move outside the line on his backstroke and that the putts never felt solid. As a result, distance control was not good and his confidence was not great.
What is SPi (SeeMore Putter Institute) -
SeeMore has certified teaching professionals in the area of putting. They are certified to teach the SeeMore system and teachings of Pat O’Brien – instructor to Zach Johnson, Vaughn Taylor and other PGA Tour players. Being SPi Certified is designed to let SeeMore instructors be the best in golf.
Few golfers have been exposed to a long term putting instruction program, yet roughly 40% of all strokes are taken on the green. Golfers need a system for improvement: SeeMore has that system. Without great putting, there will never be true greatness in golf.
SPi Certified Instructor
A golfer will be able to schedule a full certified “tour level” putting lesson with any of the SPi Certified Instructors for a lesson fee and be professionally fit for a SeeMore putter if they so wish. These teaching professionals will give you the full details of why a SeeMore system is beneficial in giving you a consistent putting stroke.
SPi Certified Fitter
Many more locations will have a SPi Certified Fitter. The Certified Fitter will recommend putter specifications and can equip you with knowledge to maximize your game improvement through SeeMore’s RifleScope Technology. This reference point helps the golfer build the perfect posture, stance, alignment and grip.
