THE 3D GOLF BIODYNAMICS MOTION CAPTURE SYSTEM

Our role is primarily to work with you and your Instructor to provide expert biomechanical advice. The focus is to facilitate efficient body motion throughout the golf swing and to highlight any physical issues that our student might improve in order to assist in the technical progress (relating to posture, flexibility, stability, strength, power).

Taking an individual’s characteristics and abilities into consideration, we uncover your most efficient swing.

1) The Analysis:

This is a measurement of “what you are doing now” (Jim McLean). We make this often complicated technical information easy to understand with our GBD 3D Report and interpretation. From here, we can begin to plan your path to improvement. Being able to prioritize these changes comes from a wealth of knowledge and years of experience working with golfers of all abilities and some of the best teaching professionals in the business.

2) BioFeedback Training:

This is where we really feel we excel..It has been shown to dramatically speed up the learning process associated with technical change, plus it’s fun! Our background in Exercise Science and Biomechanics plus experience working alongside some of the very best Instructors in the game, give us the edge in terms of helping you to make desired changes in your golf swing.

3)Physical Competence:

For many average players, the struggle to change a specific swing fault often has its major cause in the inability to make a ‘physical’ adjustment. This inability may be due to:
  • A lack of awareness
  • Poor co-ordination or motor patterning
  • Decreased range of motion (lack of flexibility) or
  • A strength or power deficit

Often, it is a combination of these issues. Thus, we need to know if technical improvements are likely to be hindered by a player’s lack of physical competence. A combination of physical screening tests, Biofeedback and the 3D Report itself will allow us to tease out the relevant information. From here, we may begin you on a series of exercises designed to address the issues or simply refer you to a physical therapist or trainer in your area. It is important that while you are addressing these physical issues, you continue to have regular contact with us or your Teaching Professional. Physical improvements don’t transfer automatically to produce a better golf swing!

To ensure the most positive learning experience we prefer work WITH your instructor - you can even bring your instructor with you! If this is not possible then we will communicate our findings to them so that they stay ‘in the loop’. We believe that your Instructor is the ‘director of operations’, and that they should have the final say in terms of prioritizing the changes to your golf swing.
