Use of modern technology in golf lessons


By Michel Monnard

Of course, the use of technology sometimes scares golfers. But what if the teacher can make more educated analyzes? That’s why we use technology whenever possible.

We have heavily invested in new technology and we continue to further educate us in how to best use it for your benefit.

 

This is what we use:

FlightScope X2 Radar, club and ball tracking monitor

We use the radar to find the distances with all your clubs, to practice wedge distance control, to help with ball flight direction. We also rent it out for practice purposes of our pupils. There are so much data that this machine spits out: from Ball data like Ball speed to vertical and horizontal launch and descent angles, smash factor, spin rat, axis rotation, carry distance, roll, lateral landing, flight hight and time to Club data like club speed, acceleration profiles, face angle, face to path relationship, dynamic loft, angle of attack, club path to vertical and horizontal swing planes. It’s one awesome tool to have available.

Boditrak Pressure Mat

Where the weight is in setup becomes just one look, no more guessing and asking a pupil: “do you have the weight in the middle?” Balance is a crucial point in golf and the pressure mat gives a teacher valuable insights into this. Especially when balls are being struck on the out- our inside of the club face. Also where the golfer applies pressure can be seen.

As the putting stroke is such a small movement, it makes a whole lot of difference not having to guess. Just setup and use. We love it. Sometimes we even make games, who can hit the most balls in the center in a row. It’s just fun to work and practice with these tools.

High-speed cameras with 240 fps

That really made us coaches a huge favor and a change from android to an iphone became a no brainer. We use those phones everyday and can transfer videos via Airdrop to the Ipad where we can display lines and circles to make things more visual. The Ipad tripod has a place to fix the Iphone, so we can setup all in one and move it around as we need it.
