On today’s show we have with us a good friend of the Brain Booster in the shape of Mike Malone from Trackman to discuss technology in general and how it can potentially be either a FRIEND or a FOE to your game.
Over the past 10 to 15 years launch monitors such as Trackman have become a staple part of the coaching diet.
Most people who go for lessons now expect they will be assisted by a coach using a launch monitor but what are the potential pitfalls to what can be an overwhelming array of information?
In the early days many people fell into the trap of drowning in the numbers. Thinking that more information would be better for their game.
Yet as Mike explains, the really great coaches had an instinctive ability to limit the numbers to just a few key performance indicators.
We had a really great conversation about the very best ways of using technology and how there are many myths and misconceptions of what actually DOES change in your swing from shot to shot.
How using indoor simulators to play on golf courses can be so beneficial to your training
Why it is important to feel what you are doing with a shot THEN use technology to back up your estimate as opposed to just relying on the monitor to supply all of the information
What could the future of technology be from a golf perspective?
How entertainment technology is helping more golfers get into the game
A fantastic conversation about how YOU can get the very best out of technology without getting lost in all of the information
