See your swing analysed with the GSA PRO Swing Analyser

In our coaching sessions we can now use the GSA PRO swing analyser. It records your swing motion and can calculate your tempo, Face Angle, Club Head Speed and Attainable Ball Distance. It can actually record your swing path and give a graphical feedback that can improve your understanding of your swing. Data recorded includes:-
  • Consistency
  • Tempo
  • Back Swing Time
  • Down Swing Time
  • Face Angle
  • Club Head Speed
  • Impact Force
  • Attainable Ball Speed (ABS)
  • Attainable Shot Distance (ASD)
  • Swing Path
We also use the V1 GOLF APP to record, compare and improve your golf swing by videoing it and then viewing the analysis. It can even be compared side-by-side to the V1 Golf’s library of Tour Professionals

Check your Grip!
  • However experienced a golfer you are, checking your grip is one of the most important things to consider.
  • Without a good grip whatever you are working on swing wise is less likely to happen.
  • A bad grip will send a 'domino effect' throughout your swing.
