Whether you subscribe to the theory that golf perfection comes from video tutorials, a swing tracker, a great professional, or hitting 1,000 balls on the range, you probably haven't considered that the key to success might come from beneath your feet.
This interesting tool from BodiTrak works on the theory that you can know everything you need to know about a swing from the force you put through the ground. The company boasts a whole heap of coaches on its website, a list which includes some of America's Best Young Teachers.
The stats that BodiTrak throw out are pretty convincing. 1,000 sensors capture your entire swing through your feet and then throws out every possible fact about your movement through the ball. You then take a teacher like Jake Thurm who can convert this information, and figure out how to perfect your contact with the ball.
People across the golfing world have embraced this sort of technology to help them improve their game, and young millennial minds tend to embrace stats and facts, and direct ways that they can see their game can improve. If the golf industry can make kit like this easily available and a fun part of the learning process they will surely attract more of the young people they need to bring into the game.
