Awesome, thank you so much. Was great to see it in 3D and understand what I am doing.

Using the latest in 3D equipment, golf biomechanics provides expert interpretative biomechanical reporting on body, arm, hand and club motions during the golf swing.
Real-time position and orientation of various parts of the body (head, shoulders, arms, hips, club, etc.) are recorded as the golfer swings the club - all in three dimensions. The system is available for full swing and short game analysis. By integrating force plates with 3D analysis we further enhance the service to provide an optimal swing assessment.
The benefits are extended further with the addition of 'biofeedback training' - proven to speed up the learning of new motor patterns or changing of those already ingrained. It is this biofeedback feature of the system that golfers gain the most from in the shortest time. Take video analysis further by adding a third dimension!
3D biomechanics provides a quantitative record of how a player is swinging at any point in time. "Know what you see" (Jim McLean). "Assess, don't guess". We need a starting point!
Awesome session Mark, got so much out of it as always. Se you next time.

Bull 3D undertakes an assessment of physical capabilities and limitations in a dynamic situation, as in swinging a golf club. Are there any physical limitations restricting technical improvement that you need to be aware of? Do you suffer from a bad back or a sore neck?
This kind of information is invaluable for your trainer as well when it comes to preparation of golf-specific exercises.
The 3D biomechanics system provides instantaneous audio information to the student/golfer on club and body position throughout the swing in order to speed up technique change.
While the report provides recommendations for biofeedback training, only one parameter is chosen for working on at any one time. We all know how problematic too many swing thoughts can be!
The instructor or swing coach then has the ability to set the positions or ranges they believe are realistic for the golfer. The 3D system provides audio feedback when the player either conforms or fails to fit such postures or ranges. It could be as simple as working on shoulder alignment at address, more coil on the backswing or a better impact position. The end result is that the golfer is able to develop the all important 'feel' associated with change in technique. It is the development of this new 'feel' that allows the golfer to head back to the range and not immediately regress to their familiar pattern of movement.
3D biomechanics is a great teaching tool for low or high handicappers, even for elite touring players when changes in technique only need to be subtle ones. Multiple biofeedback sessions combined with lessons with a teaching professional are recommended for optimal results. Of course, it takes more than one lesson to develop great technique, but adding the 3D biomechanics system is a great way to speed and enhance your progress!
