Dang I was gonna go with @cksurfdude and add 1 putt to what CG2 did, but I missed the boat I guess, and definitely underestimated the amount haha

Have not looked at it yet, but maybe as a "workaround" you could go into Play mode and have Player 1 with one putter and Player 2 with the other..??

Not sure what stats they give you at the end for each player, but presumably there is at least #/% putts made by each?

Yeah, Play Mode does't keep the stats like Practice mode does.  You just putt on that hole and move on.

Haven’t used play mode at all, but I recall reading that each players putts are different to avoid learning the line from a previous player.

Yes Also! What this guy said 🙂

Maybe @gavinski91 is really sandbagging us all.  Maybe he's not really on vacation with his wife, but locked up in his man cave and going to hit us with a 1,800 output or something!

The question is whether I or anyone else can reach that 400 yard target with a 100 mph swing.

Have any of you tested multiple putters yet on the exputt to see how your gamer stacks up to the backups?  From what I read so far, the camera is just analyzing path  / speed but no putter club head data (ie launch / face impact).

I haven't tested them at the same time. Meaning yesterday I used my Scotty Cameron 5.5 for the entire session.  Previously I have used my Spider X.  One thing I may do during this weeks Practice Mode is do a 50 putt session with the SC, end that one save all the stats, then immediately do one with my Spider X and see how the data differs. 

In addition to the ball speed--immediately after impact, and the putter path, it also measures face angle at impact.  Both of those are illustrated in two places in the screen shot I provided.  Right below the practice time and number of putts, then again in the lower right hand corner they are presented as numbers.

I haven't yet,  but it is part of my plan to run through all of my putters.  Partially to compare how they work and partially because they are different colors and I want to see how well the system handles the colors and inserts.     

the system provided ball speed/distance, path, face angle at impact, and launch direction.

Well,  I am sure one of the questions on everyone's mind is does the ExPutt practice translate to the course.   Here are some initial thoughts on my on course putting over my normal weekend round and 9 hole league round.  Right now my summary would be that I am in the middle of taking lessons and some things with my putting just aren't working right but I am trying to get through them.  My typical struggle is longer putts 30'+ and leaving the ball short and over those 27 holes I have had a few putts greater than 30'.   With the Exputt I have been practicing using a green speed of 9 which seems to translate pretty well on the practice green.  Today I was rolling all kinds of long breaking putts within 3 feet of the hole.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to get that to translate to the course.  Over those 27 holes I have had 9 putts of 27' or more and have 3 putted 6 of them.  While that sounds horrible, I am still encouraged because the putts are going past the hole by 5 or more feet and most have been downhill.   The reason that I feel like I am in the middle of lessons is because I am training new distance feels which has impacted tempo and stroke.  Right now I am optimistic that the distance putting will get better.    Another think that I want to do is go measure the practice greens on a few local courses to see what speed they are rolling.   

Obviously,  we are just at the beginning of this experiment so come back for more updates.  

 

Great recap. Can’t wait to see if there are some results down the road

I did an analysis as well on Sunday when I had the EXPUTT set-up in our front “living room”. Taking a look at my graphs, I have quite a bit of fluctuation in some. With this mode running in practice, it can be saved, and then stats change with each subsequent round. Really cool! By-the-way, I sent my stats to the guys at SeeMore to see if the think any tweaks to my putter could improve the numbers. We’ll see!

I haven’t because the ONLY other putter I have is my Dad’s old Anser from the 70s, which is significantly lighter than my SeeMore. I tried the Anser on-course earlier this year, and it’s just not playable on the greens I play. I’ll give it a go on the EXPUTT, but I only think it will do well on the shorter putts.

This is promising. I had wondered how that would work since, obviously, there's only a few feet of mat to use. This thing is looking like it might be something I have to try. Maybe I'll Homer Simpson someone and "gift" it to them in the hopes that they'll let me use it hehe.

The mat never really concerned me since most of my at home practice is withing that distance anyway (yardstick, and gates for startline).   The whole concept just makes sense;  the camera measures that roll on the mat and calculates speed, direction, watches the putter and captures path.  It really is just a big math problem;  I'll post some more about that later.

It looks really cool! So don’t my have to calibrate the camera to a line on the mat or something? I mean if the camera is angled incorrectly, wouldn’t it throw the readings off?

During setup of the mat and camera the user manual give you dimensions for min/max height of camera plus horizontal distance of mat based on the cam's height; note these ranges have some latitude.

Then when you turn on the camera you can pan and tilt until the mat looks "square" to you .. then when everything looks good the system will search for the mat and give you on-screen directions if you need to adjust anything. 

Each time you turn on the system/camera it will perform the search to make sure it can properly see the whole mat.

I have it all in a fixed location in the basement, so the physical setup is constant and each time I turn on the cam it finds the mat.

In another step of testing I plan to compare the ExPutt numbers to ones generated by Blast Motion Golf.

Adding to the above comment above. Even if you don’t leave it setup all the time; I don’t, you can be up and running in minutes.
