BioMech Sports is using technology to improve your putting. First there was the AccuLock ACE putter, as it was a putter designed with biomechanics, physiology and physics in mind. The thought here is a legal putter that allows better vision and takes the unpredictable muscles in the arms, wrists and hands out of play is something golfers of all levels can benefit from and trust. It’s what some call a “healthy putter” as it should relax your entire body while putting and when was the last time that happened with your traditional putter?
Now with the introduction of the Biomech Golf App and Putting Analysis Sensor at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, running January 27-29, 2016, you might be able to relax your mind while standing over the ball on the green. It’s one thing to try and perfect the right putting stroke, it’s another thing to know how to fix it, when it isn’t perfect. BioMech makes it a point that is wants to “bring clarity to your golf game” and it’s definitely bringing clarity to short games everywhere.
“You can do things by yourself but you don’t have to do them alone—it’s like having an instructor with you at all times,” says BioMech CEO Dr. Frank Fornari. Fornari is passionate about his putter and the new technology to accompany it, but using technology is one thing, deciphering the data in another. a hands-on demonstration will leave you amazed seeing how simple BioMech’s technology is to use and operate.
Available for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, and to review on any computer or digital device, the use of the BioMech Golf App and Putting Analysis Sensor isn’t restricted to just a BioMech putter. Golfers can use any putter to see the position of the putter during the entire putting stroke, path direction back and through, the orientation of the putter face at address and also at impact and details on everything from timing to acceleration and impact force. Golfers can customize the real-time results shown on the app, depending on what data is important to their game.
“We have created this system to be an extremely affordable way to help everyone in the world play golf, beginning with putting” added Fornari. “The BioMech system isn’t just for accomplished golfers but for everyone, regardless of their skill level. It will be a great way for those who’ve never played golf to enter the game by making good instruction easy, affordable, and always available. We want this system to help grow the game of golf while helping golfers everywhere play better.”
Potential customers shouldn’t be scared of the sensor use. It’s incredibly easy to install and doesn’t impede the field of vision on putts of any distance or difficulty. And the data is truly real-time and accurate. This might be the perfect way to practice your putting, and Fornari says it makes the tedious process of practicing putts, “a little more fun.”
The BioMech App is a powerhouse when it comes to both data collection and data storage. An instructor can be standing next to the golfer or 1,000 miles away, it doesn’t matter. The data can be reviewed and then offered advice on before storing or sharing. The app also stores all data in the cloud, so it can be reviewed, reported on, or shared at a later time. The possibilities are endless with this platform as it relates to golf. A nominal device fee and a monthly subscription puts you in the BioMech ever expanding universe. The sensor will soon be available and it’s a way to make good on your 2016 New Year’s resolution to improve your putting. You can see more on BioMech sports here.
