Using Technology in Golf Instruction: What You Need to Know
The rise of technology in golf has provided coaches and instructors with many tools to help golfers improve their performance. While technology offers many benefits, we are still learning how athletes can use the information that technology provides to improve their skills. Further, understanding why a coach uses technology in their instruction is an important step towards learning how technology can be most useful to enhance coaching and athlete development. In this workshop, we will talk about our research that has looked into these questions and discuss how technology might be best used in golf instruction.
