TECHNOLOGY USED WELL GREATLY ENHANCES THE LEARNING PROCESS
It is my aim to make the process of learning as effective, sustainable, accurate and enjoyable as possible. To ensure this is achieved I utilise various pieces of coaching technology. Each resource will be used to highlight a specific point and will help to quantify any physical change or ‘feel’ the player is experiencing:
TRACKMAN2 RADAR LAUNCH MONITOR
Trackman is the industry leading launch monitor. It’s radar technology, used by the world’s best players, tracks the full trajectory of every shot pinpointing the landing position with an accuracy of less than 1 foot at 100yds. The shots 3D trajectory is displayed along with up to 26 other impact and ball flight parameters. The accuracy of the data allows coach and player to quantify any swing changes and enhance the correct feels. I use it to confirm technique improvements and when used in conjunction with video analysis can create excellent awareness between the physical swing and how that affects the shot being hit.
FUJI-FILM FINEPIX HS20 CAMERA & C-SWING VIDEO ANALYSIS
I will use my camera and coaching software regularly, but not necessarily every lesson. It can be a real confidence boost for a client to witness the improvement they have made. I save every swing to my laptop, so it is easy to compare their current technique with videos from weeks, months or even years ago. Good use of video analysis combined with effective coaching can really enhance the players feel and understanding of their swing.
BENEFITS OF USING TECHNOLOGY
o Gain accurate understanding of why you hit certain shots, good and bad
o Quantify specific feels
o Learn exactly how far you hit each club
o Compare your practice swing to the real thing
o See the differences your hard work is making
o See what difference a miss-hit makes
o How exaggerated is your exaggeration?
o And many, many more!
