TEACHING WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY
I have attended a fair number of CPD Courses in my 10 years as an EGTF Professional, and so travelled through to Forthview Golf Academy for Stewart and Bill’s latest offering on Teaching with New Technology.
There were four of us on the Course, Betty Sworowski, Bob Lamb, Philippe Pineau and myself. Since the four of us hadn’t met before, introductions took around 20 minutes. Anyone who knows Stewart will understand that his introduction took about an hour!!
As usual, the information provided on the Course was first class. Topics ranged from the Force Plate, D Plane and new Ball Flight Laws. We discussed all of the above and more in detail as well as having to look at some of the latest training aids. The one we were all impressed with was Swingbyte. Swingbyte attaches to the club shaft and provides all the feedback you would require when analysing the swing. The figures are not as accurate as Flightscope or Trackman but are in the “buffer zone”, so the information you get is more than good enough to work with.
As I said, I have been on numerous CPD Courses over the years and have never been disappointed. This time proved no different . The way GAASP and Balance provides the building blocks of the golf Swing, CPD Courses provide building blocks in your knowledge and ability to analyse and teach golfers how to enjoy and play better golf. I would encourage all of you to put one or more of these days into your diary. Neither you or your pupils will be disappointed.
Thank you again to Stewart and Bill for a great day.
