Quintic Ball Roll v1.8 “The Launch Mointor for Putting” is now available to purchase… The latest version of Quintic Ball Roll software contains a number of new feature along with increased tracking capabilities and accuracy. The software tracks the ball for the first 12″ of the putt length. It then instantly and clearly shows the ball speed, sidespin (cut or hook), angular rotation (degrees & RPM), vertical bounce, launch angle and point at which true roll occurs. Crucially – and this is the most significant advance on Quintic’s already pioneering analysis tools – all of the above are reflected graphically, numerically and in a summary sheet in a way that was formerly only available for full swing analysis software for irons and woods.
The edit function enables you to ensure you always have a 100% reading, the feature enables you to go back over a putt and tell the software where a dot is manually, this is if it didn’t track it properly in LIVE mode… The additional ability to create a summary of the putting session is a significant upgrade enabling the user to compare and analyze up to 20 putts. The average, range and standard devaition of the putts is automatically updated after each putt and can be save into a session folder. It is then possible to compare session results, for example, compare two different styles of putter, before or after a lesson, increase or decrease the loft of the putter… The software measures the performances of the golf ball, which at the end of the day, if what matters.
“I sold more putters in the first month I used the Quintic Ball Roll software than I did the entire previous year. It is so fast and easy to use, and gives you the results needed instantly, it completely verifies which putter is right for each customer. Thank you for putting life back into my putter sales”
“I cannot thank you enough for all your help over the last few weeks; I am very excited to add Quintic’s Ball Roll Software to my Putting Academy at The Club at Cordillera! The data provided by your system adds much more credibility to the skid and roll videos that I show each client currently. This information coupled with the SAM Puttlab offers each student- the true “Facts NOT Opinions” about their stroke. It is really nice to actually be able to quantify what is happening as we alter a putter’s lie, loft, and length over time.
Quintic is on the verge of something great with this simple analysis tool- every serious teacher should have this software on their computer!”

PGA European Tour Golfers, Rory McIlory
By Karl McGinty
Tuesday, 13 October 2009
If Rory McIlroy ever gets bored with the daily putting drills prescribed by Dr Paul Hurrion, he need only watch the video of Sergio Garcia beating his own brains out at the Madrid Masters. It was horrible to see Garcia, one of the most majestic ball-strikers in golf, so badly humiliated on the greens at Centro Nacional de Golf.
Stripped of all confidence, he looked muddled, confused and, at times, utterly clueless about what was happening to him. Admittedly, the putting surfaces in Madrid became spiked-up and bobbly in late afternoon. Yet, no matter how accusingly Garcia looked at the line of each missed putt, the real problem lay elsewhere.
The figures for Sunday’s final round tell a tale of maddening incompetence by a player ranked at No 9 in the world. Garcia sublimely hit 17 greens in regulation that afternoon — then two-putted every single one of them. Astonishingly, of the 71 strokes which sent Garcia tumbling into a tie for 17th place in a tournament which he had led at half way, 36 of them were putts!
The likes of Tiger Woods and Padraig Harrington were born with an assassin’s touch around the green.
Garcia wasn’t so-blessed.
Neither was McIlroy — but Dr Hurrion, the English bio-mechanics expert who also works with Harrington, believes that through sound method and hard work a good putter can be made. If anything, McIlroy’s more exciting from tee to green than the mercurial Spaniard. He currently leads the Race to Dubai and the European Tour in stroke average (69.86), despite languishing in 109th place in the putting charts (17 behind Garcia) with 30 putts per round.
So for the past 14 months, McIlroy’s devoted one hour per day — not easy for a young lad with so much excitement in his life — to repetitive putting routines which Dr Hurrion expects will provide the 20-year-old with the feel for a good putt which should stand to him for the rest of his career.
Inevitably, it’s been mind-numbingly tedious but, at this stage of McIlroy’s career, method is the one sure way he has of avoiding the madness of Sergio Garcia.GEL Golf
The GEL Ora Putter was voted the third finalist in the Golf Club category in this year’s Product Awards at GOLF EUROPE which took place from 27th to 29th September in Munich, Germany.
The GEL Ora Putter, launched in 2009, is one of eight models from the GEL Paul Hurrion Signature Range which is co-designed by GEL Golf and putting guru Dr Paul Hurrion using unique groove and insert technology. The four models from the 2009 GEL Paul Hurrion putter range which also comprises the Quasso, Pondera and Vicis models were all represented at the exhibition by GEL’s German distributors, WB Compagnie.
First prize in the Golf Club category was awarded to the Honma “Perfect Switch”, an adjustable putter which can be customized to suit any situation by exchanging the putter head appropriate for the conditions, with the TaylorMade adidas R9 Irons securing second place.
“GEL is honoured to receive this award from GOLF EUROPE and delighted to earn such recognition in the industry after only just over two years in the extremely competitive putter market,” commented Alec Pettigrew, CEO of Hong Kong-based GEL Golf, manufacturers of the GEL Ora.
For the third year running the GOLF EUROPE Product Awards were presented to those products voted the most innovative for the forthcoming season. A total of 113 products from 54 brands were analyzed by a high-calibre jury that comprised of independent industry and retail experts as well as members of the press. The jury based their voting on the functional aspect, design, degree of innovation and ease of use of the products.

GEL Golf & Paul Hurrion
The unique Groove and Insert Technology that GEL uses in its putters is based on scientific testing that has proved that the use of grooves in the putter face creates instant forward roll on the golf ball, thus reducing the unwelcome effects of skidding and giving a truer roll.
GEL’s precision-cut, horizontal aluminium face inserts give a softer and more responsive feel than the milled grooves of other groove putters whilst consultation with Tour professionals during the design process resulted in the GEL putters being designed with larger, heavier and more balanced heads, encouraging an even smoother and more rhythmical putting stroke.
Manufactured from 431 stainless steel with a Plated Black SQ finish with a sand blast face and coupled with its distinctive inserts and colourways, GEL has ensured that the putters look as great as they feel.
The GEL Paul Hurrion Signature Range uses even lighter aluminium inserts allowing weight to be distributed elsewhere in the putter head, pulling the centre of gravity up the putter face increasing forward roll. The Hurrion putters also incorporate tungsten weights to create MOI, and different shafts to reduce torque, particularly on miss-hits.
Hurrion, who has over 10 years of experience in sports biomechanics, has established independent testing company, Quintic, which provides a range of quality performance analysis software used at the highest levels in sport, health, and education across the world, and produces top-class coaching CDs.
The success of GEL putters, launched just over two years ago, can be measured by the fact that they have already enjoyed six Tour victories; one each on the Asian and Canadian Tours, two on the China Tour and one on The European Tour when American Anthony Kang won the 2009 Malaysian Open using a GEL Rego Putter. Most recently Wales’ Becky Brewerton won the Ladies Open de Espana on the Ladies European Tour using a GEL Rego Putter to hand GEL its sixth Tour.
