Tiny Sensor Clips Onto Gloves To Help Golfers Practice Like Tiger Woods
Zepp Golf offers an alternative to professional gold instruction.
Swinging a golf club might look simple to the uninitiated, but there is a lot more going on than first meets the eye. To try and make more sense of your swing, and ultimately improve it, there is a device called Zepp Golf. It’s a $150 sensor that clips to your golf glove, connects with an app via Bluetooth, and assigns a score to each of your swings. In place of an expensive instructor, and provided you can make sense of all the information, it could be a great way to improve your game.
The app calculates your score based on seven components: club speed, club plane, hand plane, tempo, degrees of backswing rotation, hand speed and hip rotation. When you first create an account, you also need select your gender, swing goals, grip and handicap. It’s also possible to set up multiple accounts and change this information as you see fit.
