About the Test
Note: The volunteers had not played with a Sacks Parente putter before their opportunity to test.
Testing anything in golf comes with a lot of scrutiny. Golfers are passionate about their choices. So this data was validated using one of the most sophisticated motion capture and analysis programs in the world…Gears.
Gears is a full body optical motion tracking system designed to measure and analyze every aspect of sport-specific skills, in full 3D, executed in a game-like scenario. This technology assists pros, coaches, and trainers to maximize athlete performance by revealing the underbelly of movement mechanics.
These results are real.
Volunteers were outfitted with the GEARS system.
Where most systems rely on low resolution approximations of swing data, with algorithmic estimates filling in the gaps. Gears provides hard data, actually measuring the entire swing as it unfolds.
Gears analyzes over 600 images per putt, in less than a second. Because both the grip and head are tracked, that data provides significant insight into the movement, including information that cannot be obtained by tracking the grip alone.
• Increase of +56% for made putts over the 82 total putts taken with each.
• Increase in make percentage from 39% to 62% using Sacks Parente.
• 1 more putt for every 5 putts taken from 8 feet.
