Improve Putting | TOMI System Overview
|Tomi Pro allows instructors to graphically capture and analyze golfers’ putting strokes in real-time. Using a camera, a clip-on sensor, and proprietary software, Tomi uses basic mechanics to measure alignment, rotation, path, loft, impact spot, and tempo. This helps instructors identify any faults in both amateur and pro putting strokes. Tomi’s visual data collection tells the instructor instantly what the students are doing.This revolutionary system allows for more effective putting instruction to improve putting.

|1. Alignment At Address|
|INSIGHT: Having established the intended Target Line for the putt, how well can the golfer consistently repeat the address position over a series of putts?MEASURE: Degrees the club face is open (+) or closed (-) to the Target Line, as established in the golfer’s setup calibration. Measured in 10ths of a degree, a maximum of 20 degrees open/outside (+) and 20 degrees closed/inside (-) versus the target line.|
|2. Alignment At Impact|
|INSIGHT: Does the golfer have a tendency to strike the ball with club face open or closed in relation to the Target Line?MEASURE: Degrees the club face is open (+) or closed (-) to the Target Line, ranging from -20 to +20 degrees. Scale is in the 10ths of a degree.|
|3. Path At Impact|
|INSIGHT: Does the golfer’s forward stroke path merge perfectly with the Target Line through the impact zone, or is the golfer cutting across the line? If so, how bad?MEASURE: Degrees the stroke path cuts across the Target Line at impact, either inside-to-out (+) or outside-to-in (-). Measured in 10ths of a degree, a maximum of 20 degrees open/outside (+_ and 20 degrees closed/inside (-) the Target Line.|
|4. Stroke Path and Rotation|
|INSIGHT: What is the overall shape of the stroke in relation to the Target Line?MEASURE: Tomi provides three very telling views of the total stroke: a white line tracing the path from the starting position of the backstroke to its end; a colored line tracing the path from the beginning of the forward stroke to follow-through; and the degrees the club face is rotated opened (+) or closed (-) in relation to the Target Line at the end of the backstroke and forward stroke.|
|5. Shaft Angle|
|INSIGHT: Is the golfer delofting, or adding loft to the club at impact? Is this a consistent tendency, or an erratic problem?MEASURE: The angle of the shaft at impact, relative to a perfectly vertical line. Measured in 10ths of a degree, the spread being +/- 10 degrees. A positive reading = added loft. Negative = delofting the club.|
|6. Impact Spot|
|INSIGHT: Is the putter consistently striking the ball where it is originally addressed?MEASURE: The golfer should address the ball in the sweet spot of the putter and come back at impact within an inch on the other side of that spot. Impact Spots that fall outside the sweet spot are recorded toward the toe or the heel.|
|7. Speed at Impact|
|INSIGHT: How well does the golfer adjust the stroke speed to correct for initial putts that are too short or too long? More important, how consistent is the club velocity at impact?MEASURE: Inches-per-second at instant of impact, on a 10th of an inch scale.|
|8. Stroke Tempo|
|INSIGHT: How consistent is the stroke timing from one putt to the next? Howmuch tienm does it take to complete the putt from the beginning of the backstroke to impact, and how consistent is the timing? What about the overall Stroke Tempo – the relative timing between the backstroke and the forward stroke?MEASURE: Elapsed time in seconds, with separate readings for the backstroke, the forward stroke to impact, and the sum of the two. Scaled in 100ths of a second.|
