In the current teaching climate, subjective assessments of the golf swing are becoming fast outdated. New technologies are advancing the game in all areas — including teaching.

There is an increasing number of available diagnostic tools such as launch monitors, pressure and force plates, and 3D-motion capture technologies that can help you more precisely analyze
the golf swing.

Learn how to harness the power of technology to detect errors in the golf swing and improve your instructional ability.
