Are you as flexible and athletic as Dustin Johnson? Can your hips rotate and stabilize as fast as Rory Mcllroy or do you have as much power as Tiger Woods? All of us have watched videos of our favorite tour player, analyzed their every move, and spent countless hours trying to duplicate their perfect swing. But could you actually be delaying results in lowering your handicap by trying to mimic a swing that is impossible to reproduce based on your own body mechanics and athletic build? If you want to make improvements in your swing, you must understand that the golf swing is dynamic and unique to each individual. There are many different swing styles on the PGA Tour, but what is the common component of an efficient swing behind a successful 300 yard drive? Biomechanic Researchers discovered that efficient golfers generate and transfer power throughout their body in a specific order, called the Kinematic Sequence.
Zeroline Golf (www.zerolinegolf.com) has reported successful beta testing of its innovative Golf MTRx™ smartphone application and has initiated the process of submitting the app to the Apple App StoreSM. Golf MTRx has been tested by both individual golfers and golf instructors who have used the app in lessons with their students. Golf MTRx measures a golfer’s hip mechanics during a swing, displays the data in a visually simple and intuitive format, prescribes drills to help a golfer improve, and provides a platform for more frequent and effective interaction between instructors and their students.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Zeroline Golf Conducts Beta Testing of Golf MTRx™ and Begins App Store Submission Process Golf MTRx™ Smartphone App Receives Positive Feedback from Beta Testing by Golfers and Golf Instructors as App Store Submission Process is Initiated SAN DIEGO, CA (October 25, 2012) – Zeroline Golf (www.zerolinegolf.com) has [...]
Golf MTRx makes use of standard iPhone hardware including the motion sensor gyroscope and accelerometer, the system clock and its timer capabilities, and the system audio microphone and speaker components. The swing recognition algorithm uses the motion sensor to obtain 3-axis motion data. The clock times the components of the [...]
Golf MTRx™, the app that collects immediate and personalized swing feedback and provides a prescription to help improve a golfer’s swing, will be demonstrated and tested during the PGA Expo Demo Night. Golf MTRx provides a simple mechanism for golfers to receive meaningful personalized feedback on their hip mechanics during swings and practice improvement techniques between lessons, making instruction much more efficient and productive. Using a patent pending swing recognition technology, Golf MTRx measures a golfer’s hip mechanics, including backswing, impact, and finish turn angles; tempo; rotational speed in degrees per second; acceleration; and deceleration during a golf swing and sends precise and relevant metrics back to the user in a visually simple and intuitive format.
After 18 months of development, I am pleased to announce the official launch of Zeroline Golf’s first product, Golf MTRx™. Golf MTRx is an exciting new mobile app that uses the integrated iPhone® and iPod touch® sensors to measure pelvis movement during a golf swing and then provide detailed analysis and recommendations for improvement.
SAN DIEGO, CA (December 5, 2012) – Golf MTRx™, an innovative new mobile app that uses the integrated iPhone® and iPod touch® sensors to measure pelvis movement during a golf swing and then provide detailed analysis and recommendations for improvement, is now available on the Apple App StoreSM. Developed by Zeroline Golf, Golf MTRx measures pelvis motion – including backswing, impact, and finish turn angles – tempo, rotational speed, acceleration and deceleration. The data are then analyzed using kinematic link science and compared to tour averages to produce an efficiency score, which represents how effectively a golfer’s pelvis accelerates, decelerates, and is positioned at peak speed to ensure the pelvis is stabilizing properly. The app identifies swing elements that need improvement and prescribes drills customized for the user.
Zeroline Golf management conducts demonstrations of Golf MTRx™, the app that collects immediate and personalized swing feedback and provides a prescription to help improve a golfer’s swing, to a receptive audience at the recent PGA Expo Demo Night “Feedback on Golf MTRx was overwhelmingly positive,” said Gibbings. “The app was tested on approximately 8 attendees and many more were able to watch the effectiveness of Golf MTRx as it was showcased.”
I feel as if I look at the game of golf differently because I understand exactly how to find the power in my swing. It has made my practice sessions more efficient and simplified my routine by showing me the main areas to focus for the best gains. Because I understand how to sequence my body better, I feel as if I have more control over my ball flight and shot selection.
