Golfers Can Now Train Virtually With Acclaimed Instructor(March 06, 2013)
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Golf simulator company, High Definition Golf, has developed the worlds first automated video swing analysis system for its simulators, based on renowned golf instructor Jim McLean's 8-Step Swing program.
Millions of golfers have bought McLeans books and DVDs,High Definition Golf is taking it one giant step further with virtual training, says Todd Richardson, President and CEO of High Definition Golf. At the click of a button, anyone can access this method of training that has helped build some of the greatest golfers in the world. Jim McLeans Golf Schools are ranked #1 in the U.S. and McLean has taught more than 100 PGA Tour, LPGA and Senior PGA Tour players. His Eight Step video is the all-time best-selling video on The Golf Channel and #1 golf DVD in America. Jim's Eight Step Swing book was ranked by Sports Illustrated as one of the top golf instruction books of the 20th century.
We worked very closely with Jim on developing this system. We wanted to ensure that this is as close as it gets to actually training with him. Step by step, a golfer is able to perfect every element of his swing, says Richardson. Golfers are able to access this system on HD Golf simulators located at indoor golf centers and other public facilities across the country. The system may also be ordered for golf simulators purchased for private residences and businesses the ultimate amenity for avid golfers.
As a golfer swings on an HD Golf simulator, this new program records and analyzes every element of his or her swing in real-time, breaking it down into McLeans 8 steps from setup to follow through. The goal at each step is to stay within McLean's "corridors of success," or safety zones in which the golfers club and body are in a good position to strike the ball well. If the golfer remains within those corridors, the system will indicate that they have "passed" that step and can move onto the next.
The system also analyzes and detects "death moves". A death move, a term coined by McLean, are actions that will kill your game, or positions that are so far from ideal - that you cannot recover to strike the ball well. When the system detects that the golfers position and swing are out of the "corridor of success" or have committed a death move, it automatically alerts him and presents him with video coaching from a "virtual" Jim McLean as well as some appropriate lessons, drills and tips to improve performance.
