Video: Inside Kevin Weeks' Putting Lab at Cog Hill (Featuring Brad Faxon)
Posted: October 13, 2010
A few weeks ago at the BMW Championship, Team Titleist followed Titleist Brand Ambassador Brad Faxon inside the famous red barn at the back of the Cog Hill driving range, up one flight stairs and into Titleist Staff Professional Kevin Weeks' putting laboratory.
Weeks, PGA Director of Instruction at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club and three-time Illinois PGA Instructor of the Year, spends a lot of time in the lab analyzing and studying the putting strokes of everyone from tour players to amateurs, solely focused on helping them make more putts.
Weeks' lab features a 420 square-foot putting green, a Scotty Cameron loft and lie machine, 10 high-speed cameras, the SAM (Science and Motion) PuttLab and SAM BalanceLab, along with the Dynamic Impact Indicator, a patent-pending device invented by Weeks that uses laser technology and high-speed cameras to further analyze a player's aim, backswing path, downswing path, impact and follow-through.
Check out the video below for a closer look and to hear what Faxon learned from spending a few hours in Weeks' classroom.
