Put a "Zepp" back into your game
I just finished a horrible round where my drives were spotty and I missed the green on most occasions. I looked at my divots and noticed they were pointing left. Surely I was coming over the top on all my irons and putting a slight slice on my drives. In the past, I would move on and blame it on the weather or having an off day. Now with a _Zepp Golf Swing Analyzer, I can recreate my swing by strapping it on my glove and making a few swings in my living room. The Zepp Golf sensor is a little tile the size of a half dollar. It is small and lightweight and when strapped on the back of your glove, you hardly know it's there. Next I take my smartphone, connect it via bluetooth and calibrate it by addressing an imaginary ball. When it registers, it tells to swing ahead. After making a few swings, it starts to compute and in seconds, I have the statistics on hand to analyze my swing. Instead of soaking in my sorrow, I now sit down and look at my swing in detail. I look at the 3D swing and see that I am coming over the top. It is clear when you see the backswing in dark blue and the downswing in light blue. These two planes should match up but in my case, it doesn't. The light blue plane is surely above or right of the dark blue plane. With the Zepp Golf sensor still on my glove, I make adjustments by making sure I loop my hands to the inside before coming down. I check the numbers again and surely, the hand path numbers look better. The aim is to bring the number down to 0 or a negative number. I keep working on the feel until the number is lower. Once it feels right, I take a club in my hand and repeat the motion.
I realize without a Zepp Golf swing analyzer, I would be in the dark like so many of you. If you're interested in learning more about it, bookmark this page or click on one of the banners on this page.
Michelle Wie is now using Zepp Golf
LPGA superstar Michelle Wie just joined Zepp Golf to help improve her tempo. Do you realize it is hard for a golfer to maintain consistency from round to round? Michelle knows that too well when she played spectacular golf one day then she found herself out of contention the next day. With Zepp Golf, she can get instant feedback by checking the stats. When something goes haywire with your swing, it's probably your tempo. With the Zepp Golf sensor, you glance at the tempo reading and it tells you instantly whether you are above or below your intended goal. No coach or instructor can tell you that.
Zepp Golf to the Rescue
One of the first things you should do when you get your Zepp Golf sensor is to record your swing. Charge it up, secure it to the back of your glove and go to the range. You want to hit your driver a few times, all your fairway woods and hybrids, then your irons. By the time you're back at home, take a look at your swing. For each of your clubs, note down the metrics in a notebook and remember to date it. The reason you want to record your metrics is when your swing goes haywire and you don't know the reason why. It happens to the best of us. We take a lesson then we can't seem to hit a ball. Or we try out a technique that we read in a golf magazine and it breaks our swing. If you have a Zepp Golf sensor, you can record your current swing then compare the metrics with your baseline swing. If you're doing something radical, it will show up on the metrics. With some patience, you will figure out the differences in your swing and hopefully, work out the kinks so you can get back to your old swing.
