Why Are Pressure Mats and Force Plates so Popular?

We’ve seen pressure mats and force plates take off over the last handful of years and become and essential tool for many golfers and golf instructors. Today we’re talking about what they are and hearing from two companies in the industry.

3 Types of Motion Capture Systems and Why You Should Use Them

motion capture golf

Motion capture is a critical tool to get accurate data on what the body is doing in the golf swing and a piece of technology that’s helping biomechanists do better research and golf instructors make better informed decisions. In this episode we talk about how they work and learn about a few companies.

The Essentials of Launch Monitors

In this episode we’re looking at launch monitors; how they’re used, how the technology works, and what they’re role is in golf at the moment with our guest Liam Mucklow.

The Practical Application of Biomechanics

We’ve all heard a lot of tips and tricks about putting, but what actually makes a good putter good. Today we talk with leading biomechanist Dr Rob Neal as he shares his research and experience working with the best players and putting coaches in the world.

Ground Reaction Forces and the Reason to Pay Attention

With all the buzz about “GRF” and “center of pressure” what do the different terms mean and what does the research say about the golfers interaction with the ground? In this episode we learn from Dr Mike Duffey and Dr Scott Lynn about the forces going on with the ground and talk about what ground […]

What the Research Says about X-FACTOR w/ Dr Phil Cheetham

x-factor and x-factor stretch

In today’s episode we’re taking a look at the research around X-Factor and X-Factor Stretch done by our guest Dr Phil Cheetham.  X-Factor, first popularized in the 90’s by Golf Magazine and Jim McLean, was the focus of some of Dr Cheetham’s research in kinematics.  Today we learn –  Is it relevant?  Does it hold up […]

Understanding the Kinematic Sequence w/ Dr Phil Cheetham

In this episode you’ll learn about one of the most commonly referred to measurements of the golf swing, the kinematic sequence. Learn from Dr Phil Cheetham, leader in the industry of 3D analysis and kinematics as he explains what it measures, what it means, how it relates to performance, and the story of the development.
