We are very proud to welcome 5 new Ambassadors to our team!

 

Kevin Sprecher is the Director of Instruction at Sleey Hollow CC in Scarborough, New Y.ork, where he began working under Jim McLean. Kevin is the 2018 Met PGA Teacher of the Year and is a GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers in America.

- I've measured pressure data for over ten years because I believe the feet and legs are the keys to swinging consistently and powerfully. Since installing my Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate, I have been able to dig even deeper into GRFs with my students. The data helps them learn faster and maintain the swing changes.  The improvements have led to significant increases in club speed and consistency with my players. The software interface is easy to use, reliable, and syncs with my launch monitors. I highly recommend the Swing Catalyst system and wish I would have purchased it years ago!

 

Paxton O'Connor is the Director of Instruction at Jim Flick Golf Performance Center, Desert Mountain Club, Inc in Phoenix, Arizona, and former Instructor at Butch Harmon School of Golf, Las Vegas. Paxton was named to the “Best Young Teachers in America” list for 2018-19 by Golf Digest.

- As we are straining and striving to be our very best; demands as coaches, trainers, and players is to utilize the best resources available. Swing Catalyst has provided that service through their video software that integrates radar data and ground reaction force measurements, 3D Motion and Balance Plates, and most importantly, a user interface that anyone can use.

 

Allen Terrell is the Director of Coaching at the Dustin Johnson Golf School in in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Allen was cited by Golf Channel as one of top instructors under the age of 40 and recently named to the 2017-18 Golf Digest list of Best Teachers by State. Allen has coached more than a dozen players on the PGA and European Tours to more than 15 victories.

- Partnering with Swing Catalyst has truly reinforced our philosophy of developing functional patterns rather than just one model. This partnership has drastically improved our ability to get right to the problem prohibiting a player from reaching their ball control potential. The pressure trace technology is the best in the business and the video software has proven be just as elite. We have used Swing Catalyst with great success for all levels of golfers. Thank you to Swing Catalyst for allowing us to increase our player development to an even higher level.

 

Chase Cooper is a former professional golfer and currently the Director of Instruction at the Hal Sutton Golf Academy at the Big Easy Ranch near Columbus, Texas. Chase is working closely with 14-time PGA Tour Winner and Ryder Cup Captain Hal Sutton.

- I’ve always been a big believer in the old saying, “Why guess when you can measure?” At the Hal Sutton Golf Academy, we use every piece of technology available to help our players improve and that starts with our Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate. Understanding how our players interact with the ground gives us a huge advantage when diagnosing their golf swings. From the software interface to the data provided (pressure trace and forces), we’ve absolutely loved using this plate for the past 2 years.

 

Jason Carbone is the Director of Instruction at the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey.

- Swing Catalyst has exceeded my expectations since the first day we got it.  I did a lot of research on both different software, as well as different motion capture systems.  In the end, I found the best of both worlds in Swing Catalyst.  Even if I wasn’t purchasing any type of ground force plates, I still would have purchased the swing catalyst software by itself.  When we decided to add a Balance Plate in one bay and the 3D Motion Plate in the other, it became the finest integrated teaching system I’ve ever used.  Our ability to catalog swings, track improvement, create better forces and torques, and seamlessly navigate through a lesson, affirmed our decision to implement Swing Catalyst to its full extent.  No other system can compare.

After months of extensive testing the Swing Catalyst 8.0 is soon ready to be launched!

The 8.0 version includes a range of exciting new features and tweaks to existing features which makes this version easier to use and even more valuable for our customers. We will announce the launch date on our social media pages, so please follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram if you do not already.

Several usability changes have been made. New swings are now shown to the left in the stack, making them easy to play back and find later on. Settings are easily accessible while recording and analyzing swings, so tweaking your camera settings or enabling the launch monitor can  be done without leaving your analysis session.

The brand new Lesson module ensures better support for high resolutions while at the same time makes it easy to share favorite swings and moments from your practice sessions with the students. Sharing swings with others is now easier than ever, email addresses of local users are now available via autocomplete.

Great news also for our customers using the Foresight GCQuad launch monitor, the Quad is now fully integrated with the Swing Catalyst software.

Do you have any suggestions what features or improvements can make the Swing Catalyst software even better? Please share your idea with us here.

We are very happy to welcome Henrik ”Hempa” Lundqvist and Lucy Davies to the team of Swing Catalyst Ambassadors.

Former national coach of Belgium, Norway and Sweden, Henrik Lundqvist has coached players on all levels of the PGA/LPGA Tour and been ranked among the top 3 golf professionals in Sweden for more than a decade. Henrik is currently the head professional at Ullna Golf Club in Stockholm.

- I have been using Swing Catalyst since 2013 and Swing Catalyst system is the first device that I have used that instantly visualizes the cause and effect in the student´s unique movement, which helps me guide them into maximum efficiency in no time. Measuring the evolution in their movement is of outmost importance to better understand the behavior of the golf club. Together with Swing Catalyst video software and radar data from Trackman this is the most powerful tool a teacher needs. In my philosophy that we all have unique swing movements Swing Catalyst helps each and every student develop the fundamentals of how to interact with the ground and transferring energy into the club.

Lucy Davies is a former player on the LET and Canadian Tour and currently the Director of Instruction at the prestigious Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California.

- I own a Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate and the product is outstanding! I use it for golfers of all skill levels. From a student perspective it helps them understand where their source of power comes from and how their center of pressure moves throughout the golf swing. As an instructor it allows me to diagnose a problem quicker. It takes guesswork out. 

The Swing Catalyst video software is easy to use and has a variety of options for analyzing golf swings. I use it throughout my studio. In my opinion it’s the best software out there.

We are very proud to welcome two new Ambassadors to the Swing Catalyst team! If you are located near Bluffton, South Carolina or Toronto, Canada feel free to stop by Jason or Liam to check out their Swing Catalyst systems.

Jason Baile is currently the Director of Instruction at the prestigious Belfair Plantation in Bluffton, South Carolina. Jason came to Belfair after serving on the highly acclaimed teaching staff at Sea Island Golf Club where he worked with Todd Anderson, Jack Lumpkin, Gale Peterson and Mike Shannon, all of whom are listed among Golf Digests Top 50 Instructors. Jason is a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Professional Level 3 in both screening the body for golf and golf mechanics. Jason has also been trained in laser optics putting and is TrackMan Certified Level 2 as well as Swing Catalyst Certified Level 2 in Biomechanics. Jason was also selected as the PGA HHI Chapter Carolinas Section Teacher of the Year in 2016 and is listed by Golf Digest as a “Best in State” Instructor.

- About four years ago I went on a search for the next great piece of technology to add to 2D video and Trackman. I wanted a tool that was a measurable, a tool that could help players of all skill levels and a tool with a team behind it that would help me grow as a coach. As I applied these desires it became obvious that Balance Plate was the tool and Swing Catalyst was the company. I could not be happier with the support I have received from the technical team, the education I have been afforded by Dr. Scott Lynn, or the relationships I have built with some of the top coaches in the world. In the end, it is all about making the athlete you are coaching the best version of themselves that you can, and Swing Catalyst offers an avenue like no other to do that, says Jason Baile.

Liam Mucklow is regarded as one of the leaders in applied golf education. He spent nearly a decade with the World Long Drive Tour, California Mini Tours and various Professional Tours in Asia before he founded The Golf Lab< in 2009. The Golf Lab encompasses onsite coaching, physical, medical and equipment services and it has solidified its reputation as one of Canada’s Premier golf performance centers. More recently Liam has refocused his energy on Education and Research. He has been working with the PGA of Canada to provide the highest level Golf Coaches in Canada with support on analyzing performance with technology. Liam also helped the Titleist Performance Institute launch its worldwide Power Coach Certification program in May of 2013. This year he had a podium presentation at the World Scientific Congress of Golf in Australia, and the World Golf Fitness Summit in California.

- Installing the Swing Catalyst 3D motion plate allows me to measure the kinematic forces that drive the golfers’ kinematics.  If you want to solve a problem you need to get to the cause and measuring the Ground Reaction Forces is the only way to truly understand why the player does what they do.  It allows my clients to quantify their feels and move forward with a great cause and effect understanding of their golf swing, says Liam Mucklow.

More than 600 instructors around the world have passed our Level 1 Certification Course so far. The Level 1 is a free (for a limited time) online course available through our website. Watch the video seminar and take the multiple choice test to become a Swing Catalyst Level 1 Certified Instructor!

The Swing Catalyst Certification Program provides insights into how the best golfers in the world are using the ground to create power and consistency, and how the ground reaction forces affect the golf swing. There is no requirement to own a Swing Catalyst Balance Plate or a 3D Motion Plate to take this course.

The program is led by Dr. Scott Lynn, Associate Professor at California State University, Fullerton and Research Director at Swing Catalyst. The main purpose of the program is to provide a better understanding of how biomechanics can help golfers improve their swing and avoid injury. The certification program is divided into two courses, Level 1 and Level 2.

  • Level 1 is an online course which focuses on basic biomechanics terminology and the difference between shifting mass and shifting pressure (CoM vs CoP). Students will also learn about the Swing Catalyst Balance Plate and how the best players in the world are shifting pressure to create more power.
  • Level 2 is a one day seminar and offers students who have completed Level 1, a more in-depth look at biomechanics in golf. During the seminar students will also learn how the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate can help visualize the invisible forces leading to a powerful and efficient golf swing.

Take the Level 1 course today (free), and sign up for a Level 2 course afterwards!

We are very proud to welcome two of the highest ranked golf instructors in America and World Golf Teachers Hall of Fame inductees Chuck Cook and Mike Adams as Swing Catalyst owners.

Earlier this spring we installed the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate at Chuck Cook’s facility at the University of Texas Golf Club in Austin.Chuck Cook is currently coaching PGA Tour players Keegan Bradley, Luke Donald, Jason Dufner and Joe Ogilvie amongst others.
-Throughout my career, I have tried to stay current with advances in my profession. Swing Catalyst allows me to do this. Not only having CoP tracing but also ground forces application in all three dimensions allow me to pinpoint swing errors in a much quicker time frame and adds another metric when paired with video and launch monitor info, says Chuck Cook

Chuck Cook with Swing Catalyst Research Director Dr. Scott Lynn and the legendary Tom Kite (click on image for larger version)

Last month we also installed the 3D Motion Plate for Mike Adams at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in New Jersey. Mike Adams will work closely with Swing Catalyst Research Director Dr. Scott Lynn, and co-host several Swing Catalyst seminars later this year. 
-Every golfer is unique in how they swing the club in time and space. Only by being able to combine high speed video, swing radar information, and understanding the students’ ground reaction pattern am I truly able to create a swing blueprint for each golfer. Swing Catalyst ability to integrate all three into a real time application gives me the keys to proceed with each student. The traces I get from Swing Catalyst helps me to guide each student into the changes necessary to help them use the ground more efficiently and create more power resulting in longer straighter shots. The Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate is the Ferrari of all force and pressure plates, says Mike Adams.

The Swing Catalyst team recently installed a 3D Motion Plate system for Justin Rose in his home in the Bahamas, as well as for his coach, Sean Foley, in Orlando. "In my quest to be the best player I can be, Swing Catalyst helps me ensure no stone is left unturned and provides me with the confidence that I am always working on sound principles," says Rose.

Rose and Foley first tested the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate at the Wells Fargo Championship in May and, soon after, decided to purchase a system for themselves. Foley is very excited to start using his Swing Catalyst technology: "Appreciating the importance of ground forces in the development of an effective golf swing, the Swing Catalyst system is unique in that it allows me to examine weight-shift patterns and balance -- information that I couldn't ascertain if I were to rely on video alone," says Sean Foley. "Having the ability to use this technology in combination with TrackMan provides me with an unparalleled tool for the development of an efficient golf swing. Simply put, I am able to separate fact from opinion."
 
In addition to Foley, several other world renowned coaches have installed the 3D Motion Plate at their academies over the last couple of months, including Matt Killen, Scott Hamilton, Kevin Weeks, Bernie Najar, Chris Como, Grant Waite and Andrew Rice.
 
"It is exciting to see how many of the top coaches and players are now adding the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate to their repertoire," says Tom Christian, marketing manager for Swing Catalyst. "It seems like many of the top coaches agree with us in that ground forces are of great importance to the golf swing. And when it comes to ground forces, the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate reveals secrets that cannot be detected by the best trained eye or even the most advanced video cameras."

PGA Tour coach Matt Killen decided to purchase the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate after his student J.B. Holmes scored the highest-ever recorded force factor just before his win at the Wells Fargo Championship in May.

The Swing Catalyst team recently installed the complete system including several high-speed cameras at the Killen Golf Academy in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

"As a teacher quantifying what happens during the swing, it’s important to learn what the best players in the world do in their swing and to also provide a numeric value on their ability to use the ground,” says Killen. “It’s very helpful in evaluating improvement."

- Torque, or rotational force, reflects the force produced in rotational motion, which translates through the golfer to the club and into the ball, says Dr David McGhie, head of R&D at Swing Catalyst. - The Swing Catalyst force factor is a relative measure of the maximum torque a golfer produces during the swing. Essentially, it is normalized by body mass, which takes into account the influence of mass on the forces that contribute to the torque. Generally, a person with greater body mass will produce larger ground reaction forces simply due to the greater body mass. By removing this effect, the force factor indicates the degree to which the golfer is able to create torque from his or her body mass. At the individual level, the force factor has been shown to be strongly correlated to club head speed at impact, which of course is a main determinant of driving distance.

The Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate is Swing Catalyst’s flagship swing analysis system, offering all the same data as the company’s basic Balance Plate, but also adds horizontal/vertical force- and torque measurements. Based on these measurements, the system calculates the amount of rotational force generated, and how well the golfer times this force relative to impact. All 3D Motion Plate data is perfectly synchronized with the video images and the data from a ball/club tracking device.

Rarely do you hear golfers and instructors talk about pressure shift when studying a golf swing. Rather, you are more likely to hear them say weight shift. To understand the difference between the two, let us take a closer look at what pressure really is.

The Swing Catalyst Balance Plate consists of more than 2000 high-resolution sensors that measure the exact amount of pressure applied to the ground. In short, pressure is force working over an area. In our case we are talking about the force the golfer is exerting on the ground and the area of the two golf shoes touching the ground (shown as the footprints in the Swing Catalyst software). The Balance Plate measures the exact size of the two footprints and the pressure that is applied to these areas. From this we get the pressure distribution, which is simply how much the golfer is pushing down on one foot compared to the other. In other words, it shows where the golfer is exerting force on the ground. When the pressure distribution between the feet changes throughout the swing, it indicates a shift in pressure, which is also shown in the center of pressure (CoP) trace. This is why we use pressure shift to describe the movement of the CoP. Most good players will perform a rapid, continuous pressure shift during the downswing. In the screenshot of PGA Tour player Kevin Streelman, this is illustrated by the smooth and straight line in the CoP trace from Kevin's trail foot (right) to his lead foot (left).

When analyzing a golf swing, weight shift is commonly used to describe what is actually pressure shift. We have even used weight shift ourselves since most golfers are familiar with this term. However, it is primarily a coaching term. By definition, weight shift refers to the movement of body mass, not the pressure measured by the Swing Catalyst Balance Plate. It's important to note that the golfer does perform a weight shift during the swing by moving the body mass, but this is not what is measured by pressure distribution. Nevertheless, pressure shift, or movement of the CoP, is usually a good indicator of weight shift for most parts of the swing, the potential exception being certain transition points.

We will discuss the relationship between pressure shift and weight shift in more detail later. For now, the distinction between the two is most important. The Swing Catalyst Balance Plate measures pressure shift, although this is often referred to as weight shift.

Hamilton is the PGA Director of Golf and Instruction at Cartersville Country Club, located in the foothills of northwest Georgia. Over the years, he's worked on the swings of many PGA Tour pros, and currently teaches Boo Weekley, Tim Herron, Will Claxton, Steven Bowditch and Scott Brown.

Now, he's thrilled to add the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate to his armor. "It blows me away at how detailed and visually compelling this system is," says Hamilton, the PGA of America's 2007 Georgia Section Teacher of the Year. "It shows me parts of the swing I've never seen captured before by any other system." Tom Christian Lindvag, marketing manager for Swing Catalyst, says Hamilton is just the latest in a slew of top instructors to add Swing Catalyst to their facility. "We've had a great year so far, and getting our equipment into top-caliber facilities such as Scott Hamilton Golf Academy bolsters our reputation even more," says Tom. "It's great to know that some of the top players in the world are relying on our system."

When studying Kevin Streelman's transition from backswing to downswing, why does the Swing Catalyst software show that most of the pressure is on his trail foot while most of his body mass is placed over his lead foot?

When analyzing the golf swing in the Swing Catalyst software, the seemingly independent actions of body mass and pressure can be confusing. Nowhere in the swing is this more apparent than in the transition from backswing to downswing, illustrated here with PGA Tour player Kevin Streelman. When studying this transition, why does the Swing Catalyst software show that most of the pressure is on the trail foot (R) while most of the body mass is placed over the lead foot (L)?

As explained in the article "Weight shift or pressure shift?", the Swing Catalyst Balance Plate measures the pressure applied to the ground by the golfer. Further, remember that pressure is force working over an area. This means that pressure is the result of the force exerted on the ground by the golfer. When standing still at address, pressure is usually distributed fairly evenly between the feet because the golfer's body mass (and therefore weight) is distributed fairly evenly between the feet. The Tour players we have studied tend to favor the lead foot slightly, typically displaying a 55-45 distribution. However, the positioning of body mass only determines the distribution of pressure in a passive situation, such as when standing still. During the swing, this relationship is not as clear. This is because the golfer can also actively push down, increasing pressure through force produced by the muscles.

Now consider the transition from backswing to downswing, the point where this confusion often arises. A golfer will push down with the trail foot to initiate the downswing. In the picture, this can be seen in the greater pressure on Kevin's right foot (R). The body mass, on the other hand, will start to move toward the lead foot in the transition. Notice that Kevin's body mass is favoring his lead foot (L), even though the pressure is favoring his trail foot (R). This is because he actively increases pressure on the trail foot (R) through muscle force. From this we can see that the distribution of pressure does not always follow the distribution of body mass. It will quickly "catch up" with the body mass in the downswing, though. Most good players employing a traditional swing style shift their pressure rapidly to the lead foot after the transition, illustrated here by the straight grey line in the center of pressure trace from Kevin's trail foot (R) to his lead foot (L).

We are very happy to welcome Henrik ”Hempa” Lundqvist and Lucy Davies to the team of Swing Catalyst Ambassadors.

Former national coach of Belgium, Norway and Sweden, Henrik Lundqvist has coached players on all levels of the PGA/LPGA Tour and been ranked among the top 3 golf professionals in Sweden for more than a decade. Henrik is currently the head professional at Ullna Golf Club in Stockholm.

- I have been using Swing Catalyst since 2013 and Swing Catalyst system is the first device that I have used that instantly visualizes the cause and effect in the student´s unique movement, which helps me guide them into maximum efficiency in no time. Measuring the evolution in their movement is of outmost importance to better understand the behavior of the golf club. Together with Swing Catalyst video software and radar data from Trackman this is the most powerful tool a teacher needs. In my philosophy that we all have unique swing movements Swing Catalyst helps each and every student develop the fundamentals of how to interact with the ground and transferring energy into the club.

Lucy Davies is a former player on the LET and Canadian Tour and currently the Director of Instruction at the prestigious Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California.

- I own a Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate and the product is outstanding! I use it for golfers of all skill levels. From a student perspective it helps them understand where their source of power comes from and how their center of pressure moves throughout the golf swing. As an instructor it allows me to diagnose a problem quicker. It takes guesswork out. 

The Swing Catalyst video software is easy to use and has a variety of options for analyzing golf swings. I use it throughout my studio. In my opinion it’s the best software out there.

We are very proud to welcome two new Ambassadors to the Swing Catalyst team! If you are located near Bluffton, South Carolina or Toronto, Canada feel free to stop by Jason or Liam to check out their Swing Catalyst systems.

Jason Baile is currently the Director of Instruction at the prestigious Belfair Plantation in Bluffton, South Carolina. Jason came to Belfair after serving on the highly acclaimed teaching staff at Sea Island Golf Club where he worked with Todd Anderson, Jack Lumpkin, Gale Peterson and Mike Shannon, all of whom are listed among Golf Digests Top 50 Instructors. Jason is a Titleist Performance Institute Certified Professional Level 3 in both screening the body for golf and golf mechanics. Jason has also been trained in laser optics putting and is TrackMan Certified Level 2 as well as Swing Catalyst Certified Level 2 in Biomechanics. Jason was also selected as the PGA HHI Chapter Carolinas Section Teacher of the Year in 2016 and is listed by Golf Digest as a “Best in State” Instructor.

- About four years ago I went on a search for the next great piece of technology to add to 2D video and Trackman. I wanted a tool that was a measurable, a tool that could help players of all skill levels and a tool with a team behind it that would help me grow as a coach. As I applied these desires it became obvious that Balance Plate was the tool and Swing Catalyst was the company. I could not be happier with the support I have received from the technical team, the education I have been afforded by Dr. Scott Lynn, or the relationships I have built with some of the top coaches in the world. In the end, it is all about making the athlete you are coaching the best version of themselves that you can, and Swing Catalyst offers an avenue like no other to do that, says Jason Baile.

Liam Mucklow is regarded as one of the leaders in applied golf education. He spent nearly a decade with the World Long Drive Tour, California Mini Tours and various Professional Tours in Asia before he founded The Golf Lab< in 2009. The Golf Lab encompasses onsite coaching, physical, medical and equipment services and it has solidified its reputation as one of Canada’s Premier golf performance centers. More recently Liam has refocused his energy on Education and Research. He has been working with the PGA of Canada to provide the highest level Golf Coaches in Canada with support on analyzing performance with technology. Liam also helped the Titleist Performance Institute launch its worldwide Power Coach Certification program in May of 2013. This year he had a podium presentation at the World Scientific Congress of Golf in Australia, and the World Golf Fitness Summit in California.

- Installing the Swing Catalyst 3D motion plate allows me to measure the kinematic forces that drive the golfers’ kinematics.  If you want to solve a problem you need to get to the cause and measuring the Ground Reaction Forces is the only way to truly understand why the player does what they do.  It allows my clients to quantify their feels and move forward with a great cause and effect understanding of their golf swing, says Liam Mucklow.
