Putting Automatic Report

The Quintic Automatic Putting Report has been developed in order to produce detailed analysis of a golfer’s putting technique in an applied setting.

Number of Cameras: A single high-speed camera is required to capture the putting action from the ‘face-on’ view.  It is strongly recommended that a fixed camera set-up is used to ensure consistent and accurate data collection.

Number of Trials: You can produce a report for up to 6 putts/trials, with a separate file uploaded for each putt. The ability to input multiple trials means that you can determine the variability of the putting action, with less variability indicating greater consistency in the player’s stroke.

Anatomical Marking: To generate a complete report, reflective markers need to be positioned on the following anatomical landmarks.

Putting Markers

9.5 mm markers are recommended for all anatomical markers.


One high-speed camera is used to capture the movement with reflective markers placed in the appropriate anatomical positions, as explained in the associated tutorial. Each video/trial is then digitised in the Quintic Biomechanics software and the data exported to Excel. Once this process is complete, the PDF report can be created using the relevant bolt-on Quintic Automatic Report software. Basic information to be included in the report (e.g. name and height) is to be entered manually and a profile created for that individual.

The relevant Excel files are then loaded into the report software and the PDF report is automatically generated, including the calculation of key time events and variables. This means that time does not need to be spent calculating the key variables and attempting to determine where the key frames are in the video.

Report Output:

The Quintic Automatic Putting Report includes graphs, diagrams and statistics for 32 parameters. They include the following:

  • Head Kinematics
  • Pendulum Motion of the Stroke
  • Shoulder Kinematics
  • Upper Trunk Kinematics
  • Trunk Kinematics (Sway & Lift)
  • Elbow Kinematics (distance, velocity)
  • Wrist Kinematics (distance, angles & velocity)
  • Club Kinematics (distance, tempo, velocity & acceleration)

Head Kinematics:

Head Displacement in the Backswing (cm): Preferred to stay stationary (or as close too as possible) throughout the stroke in order to maintain pivot points and body angles. Minimal movement (<0.5cm) in both directions (Sway & Lift). If the movement is greater than 0.5cm the pivot point will change due to movement in the negative sway during the downswing will affect the attack angle of the putter and launch of the ball.
Head Displacement in the Downswing (cm): Lift of the head will often lead to different strikes on the putter face which will change ball speed / impact ratio.
Head Displacement in the Throughswing (cm): The results shown represent a 1.24cm positive lift during the throughswing. The head is ‘lifting’ upwards during the throughswing.
Head Displacement from Address to Impact (cm): Any movement from the beginning of the stroke through to contact is not encouraged as it will change the pivot point of the stroke and change the strike of the putt.

For consistency, minimal movement 0.5cm is required in both directions (Sway & Lift).
