TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE IN EACH LESSON

GASP Lab video software offers the opportunity to analyse movement in high speed and provide us with feedback as to how the body is functioning in the golf swing.
K Vest measures the human movements with accuracy not possible with cameras or the naked eye, this is done in 3D motion. This allows us to understand how a player moves. Therefore, we can create an action plan to improve based on biomechanics and kinematic sequence reporting.
SAM Balance Lab is an ultra-high resolution pressure plate to evaluate balance and weight transfer during a golf swing. The pressure signals and synchronized video are recorded in parallel and then interactively analysed in detail.
SAM Putt Lab analyses the 28 most important parameters of your putting stroke and displays the results in easy to understand graphic reports. Discover your individual strengths and weaknesses for a better and more efficient training.
TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) is the world’s leading educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to the golf swing. TPI Certified Instructors are certified to conduct physical screenings measuring a player’s body motions and relating them to their golf swing. Once a screening is complete, each player who has been screened receives an 8-week exercise program specific to their needs with videos accessible online to help the player overcome muscular imbalances and mobility issues thus creating more efficiency in the player’s technique.
Trackman displays the shot’s 3D trajectory together with 26 impact and ball flight parameters in real time. Discover the importance and advantage of receiving instant and actionable feedback on club delivery, launch, ball flight and landing. The mapping of swing DNA is now possible, as is the quantification and comparison of swing feel vs. real. This technology also empowers us to monitor patterns and swing changes over time.
