ANALYSIS > SWING SCORE
Analysis > Swing Score
Swing Score is the
measurement of your
combined swing
metrics and swing
goals. It is based off of
five swing metrics
including speed,
tempo, club plane,
hand plane and shaft
position.
38
ANALYSIS > TEMPO
Analysis > Tempo
Defined: The ratio of the measured time in seconds it
takes to make a back swing versus the measured rate
of time in seconds it takes to make a downswing until
impact. Tempo is the natural rhythm and timing of the
swing. You want your swing to not only happen in a
timely manner but in a consistent way with every
swing.
39
ANALYSIS > TEMPO
Standards: A golf professional’s average time for the
backswing is 0.82 seconds, with an additional 0.27
seconds to make the down swing to impact. That is an
ideal ratio of 3:1. Most amateurs get into trouble with
inconsistent changing tempo from swing to swing.
Usually your downswing time in the Tempo screen is
consistently the same. It’s your backswing time that is the
culprit, changing from swing to swing.
Quick Tip: If your tempo is less than the 3-1 ratio, try
speeding up your backswing. If it is more than the 3-1 ratio,
then work on slowing down your backswing. You will
immediately see a change in your numbers and with
practice you will learn to swing in time!
40
ANALYSIS > HAND PLANE
Hand Plane
Defined: This measures the path your hands
make in the backswing compared to the path they
make on the downswing. Ideally, the higher the
percentage, the better the golf swing.
41
ANALYSIS > HAND PLANE
Standards: Hand Plane is an important feature
because the club head will follow where the hands
go. Most professionals are at 90 -100 percent
matching. Amateurs have a much harder time
matching hand path. The majority have a hand
Quick Tip: When practicing at the range, make
50 swings, without hitting golf balls, changing your
hand path shape to one that goes out and up and
drops back in, exaggerating a big loop. Use the
app to see the changed path, then try the same
motion on a ball.
42
ANALYSIS > SPEED
Speed
Defined: This is a measure in miles per hour (MPH) of
how fast your clubhead is traveling at the point it
impacts the golf ball. Max Speed = The maximum club
head speed reached on your down swing. Impact
Speed = The speed of the club at impact. The club
actually slows down when you hit the ball.
43
ANALYSIS > SPEED
Standards: For golf professionals, a typical driver
clubhead speed is 110-115 mph and for women
professionals, it’s 90-100 mph. Most "average" golfers
don't approach those speeds. A typical recreational male is
swinging somewhere in the neighborhood of 85 mph, while
a typical amateur female golfer is about 65 mph.
Quick Tip: A good tip to increase clubhead speed is
to make sure you are making a full backswing at
270 degrees. (See Backswing Position) Every
20-30 degrees more on your backswing equals an
increase of clubhead speed of 5 mph.
44
ANALYSIS > SHAFT POSITION
Shaft Position
Defined: This is the measurement of degrees of
the angle of the club shaft between address and
the top of backswing. This is measured by the
change in angle at address to the angle at the top
of the swing. At address the club is at zero (0)
degrees. At the top of the swing it is 270 degrees.
45
ANALYSIS > SHAFT POSITION
Standards: The optimal backswing or FULL
swing is at 270 degrees, where the golf shaft is
parallel to the ground or pointing at the target.
Most golf professional average 270 degrees
getting to a full swing. Most amateur golfers are
at 230 -250 degrees.
Quick Tip: For maximum desired speed results, it
is important that you try to make as long of a
backswing as possible. In turn, you also want to
make sure you do NOT go past 270 degrees,
because it is often hard to get back to the ball in
good time. A great way to ensure you get this
position is to use a full-length mirror as you watch
your own swing placing the club at 270 degrees.
46
ANALYSIS > HIP ROTATION
Hip Rotation
Defined: This measures the degrees you
rotate your hips on the backswing and then
the degrees of rotation at impact.
Standards: The average golf
professional has an average hip
rotation of 45 degrees closed to
the target at the top of the
backswing, and at impact, they
rotate their hips to an average of
42 degrees open (facing the
target). Most amateurs under
rotate their hips on both the
backswing and the downswing.
Most of the power in a golf swing
comes from adequate hip
rotation.
47
Quick Tip: Keeping a solid
bent right knee helps with a
tight coil on the backswing. On
the downswing think of getting
your belt buckle pointed at the
target.
ANALYSIS > CLUB PLANE
Analysis > Club Plane
Defined: This measures how closely your backswing
plane matches your downswing plane. Ideally, the
higher the percentage, the better the golf swing.
Quick Tip: When practicing at
the range, make 50 swings,
without hitting golf balls,
changing your hand path shape
to one that goes out and up and
drops back in, exaggerating a
big loop. Use the app to see
the changed path, then try the
same motion on a ball.
Standards: Most professionals are at
90-100 percent matching. Amateurs
have a much harder time matching the
backswing to the downswing. Most
have a downswing that comes “over”
the plane, causing a steep downswing
and a ball flight that slices.
