Quintic Ball Roll Software

I have been lucky enough to witness the new Quintic Ball Roll Software up close and see the benefits of the kind of information that it produces, which has not been available to golf coaches before.

Quintic Ball Roll was designed by Dr Paul Hurrion, European Tour Coach and biomechanics expert, to allow us to see what the ball was doing when struck by the putter.  Obviously the naked eye doesn’t give anywhere near the full picture, so Paul developed the analysis software to help improve the mechanics of the stroke through the information it produces and also to help fit putters properly.

Quintic Ball Roll is currently being used on Tour by most of the major putter manufacturers to test their putters in the hands of the Tour Pro’s and trying to find the optimum  balance of stroke mechanics and putter to create the best roll possible.

The system can calculate initial launch angle of the ball, hook and cut spin, when true roll occurs, whether the ball will go in the hole at certain lengths of putt through the push/pull data and much more.  Although the cost is around £5,000, the package includes everything you would need to start a Putting Academy and set yourself above others in the golf teaching field.  I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to take teaching putting to the highest level.

A recent trip to Germany for the Masters Course allowed me to put the EGTF students through the ball roll system and allow them to see what actually needs to be changed to ensure they make more putts.  EGTF Pro, Marvin Buschmann brought his system along for the guys to try, and after speaking to Marvin it was clear that the purchase of the Quintic Ball Roll Software has really helped him create a niche market that most Pro’s don’t seem interested in. 

The results were as always, quite eye opening and with a better understanding of what is actually going on at impact when putting, along with some excellent high speed video from the Casio EX-F1, we were able to put the guys onto the correct path to holing more putts.

Hi Tec CDT Powershoes

It seems appropriate with Padraig Harrington’s win in the Open Championship, that we have a look at the footwear that propelled him to that title.

The Hi Tec CDT Power Shoes were developed by our own Dr Paul Hurrion especially for Padraig, to enable him to create more stability and resistance in the golf swing.
The research into creating the first truly performance based golf shoe was carried out by Paul and the Quintic Consultancy team with help from Hi Tec and Padraig, and revolved around sports biomechanics to ensure the product was more functional than fashionable.

Percentage of golfers who improved the consistency and accuracy of their shots using a 5-iron during testing. 88%

Percentage of golfers who said that during testing they felt they were hitting the ball further. 100%

The Results

Average ball speed achieved by Padraig wearing existing golf shoes and conventional metal cleats. 166mph

Average ball speed achieved by Padraig wearing the new CDT Power cleats. 173mph

Paul’s team used high speed cameras and RS footscan technology to analyse many golf swings, so they could produce a shoe that held the feet in place throughout the swing, and made sure that the torsional forces generated were delivered in the right places, creating a more stable and efficient platform from which to swing.

The position of the studs, the flex grooves in the sole and the outer dams have all been specifically designed with 21st century sports science in mind.

Bill Abbott says: “I have worn CDT Power Shoes for some time and although to begin with they do feel a little clumpy, you soon get over this feeling as you begin to notice the stability and power you feel when you swing”.

The Hi Tec CDT Power Shoes are the first of their kind and have since led to many manufacturers to start to look at what their shoes actually deliver in terms of performance.  Golf these days is an athletic sport and footwear should reflect this.

The leaps that Paul Hurrion and the people involved with CDT shoes have made, has revolutionised the golf footwear market.
