About a dozen Sam putt labs setup around Melbourne at various golf courses. A good area to start with the data provided and a way forward to understand what's required for a better putter. How the data is interpreted is only a small part and not the key to the fitting.
Otherwise you are just being sold another shiny new putter !

There seems to be a strong correlation between the putter which SAM says is correct for your stroke and the putters on special that week.

I think the key to getting a quality putter fitting, is to be consistent.

 

If you are not consistent with how you putt, eg, set-up, ball position, stroke etc, it will be harder to really dial something in accurately.

 

The more consistent and repeatable you are, the better the fitting outcome would be I reckon.

 

I know that I'd be an absolutely shocking prospect for getting a putter fitting, cause I change the ball position, my set-up, grip, and stroke, numerous times during a round.

 

Sometimes I'll putt "square on" from mid stance, sometimes I'll go with a really strong bottom hand grip for putts which slide away from me, (to try and keep it on line for longer) ......… sometimes I'll play it forward in the stance to get more roll, and sometimes I'll go with a Jack Nicklaus style open address position.

 

I can change between them all during a round, and that can just depend on how I feel at any given point ... so consistency in terms of a fitting would be an essential I reckon ….. otherwise you're just doing as Jon said, and buying a shiny new putter …….. (not that there's anything wrong with that :D   )

The inconsistency comes from using the wrong putter! Once you have the right putter there are no technical thoughts and you are just reading the putt. Matching the toe hang and lie angle to the players action are good starting points.

Try Ping's new putting/fitting studio in Cochranes Road Moorabbin, you must book it through a retailer but Matt Austin was great with me!

Having done putter lessons and a fitting, I agree that the correctly fitted putter helps with technical confidence. Just knowing the putter is right for me, and if I use the PSR I was shown, I do putt a LOT better. However, like GPJ posted, I think my mood and CGAF factor at times makes me inconsistent.

As an aside, I tested a heap of putters as a DIY fitting process at a retailer. Decided a particular style was the go for me, made a note if it, then looked up specs later.

Had the putter fitting and to my surprise the specs of the recommended putter matched my DIY process.
