Steve believes it’s vital to work with players on developing key areas of their game, this includes putting, chipping, pitching, approach play, tee shots, bunkers and much more, fully utilising the facilities at 3 Hammers Golf Complex.

In lessons Steve implements his ethos of ‘why guess when you can measure’. As a result, each student is measured on TrackMan throughout their training. He also makes available a BodiTrak pressure mat, HackMotion 3D wrist analysis, Sportsbox.ai 3D analysis and much more, all stored on a personal CoachNow+ account for his clients. Ensuring a structured, measurable and enjoyable golf improvement experience.

NEW STUDENT INTRODUCTION

This session is often used before any programmes are undertaken and allows us to fully understand where improvements can be made and to start forging a development pathway, where goals can be realised.

This session is split into two areas:

A 20-minute consultation

A 40-minute golf lesson

The consultation allows us to create a step-by-step process on how improvement can be obtained. It seeks out key information from previous round performances, a player’s self-evaluation, data collected from our technology and skills tests (where applicable) and serves to provide greater clarity on how improvement can be achieved.

​The golf lesson starts the improvement process off and allows a player to get to work, making the key changes required to realise their ambition. All our facilities and technology are made available to ensure clarity on what is required and how our players can start to develop themselves.

The ‘New Student Assessment’ allows a player to have a much deeper understanding of their development pathway and this style of instruction have been adopted by regional and national golf squads to develop golfers.

It is designed for those who are serious about wanting to improve and reach their full potential.

boditrack

BodiTrak Golf Pressure Mat

BodiTrak is a world leader in ground force reactions. Using this extraordinary technology, the golfer can now see how they interact with the ground. It shows pressure through the golf swing for left and right side, toe, and heel and the amount of pressure exerted downward. 

HackMotion Golf 3D Wrist Analysis

HackMotion Golf 3D Wrist Analysis

HackMotion wrist sensor makes it easier to measure and optimize your wrist angles to gain better clubface control and more controlled ball flight with smart biofeedback solution. Compatible for full swing, pitching and putting, this nifty device lets you easily track and get feedback during lessons, where you can compare and benchmark swings to previous data or PGA Tour player results.

sportsbox-ai

Sportsbox.ai 3D Swing Analysis

3D motion analysis has never been simpler. Within minute a golfer can quantify a massive range of body movements and see the changes in spectacular detail. Parameters include rotation, sway, side bend, lift and flexion for chest, pelvis, elbows and legs. This is a great tool to help the golfer discover the correct move.

video-analysis

Video Analysis

Seeing is believing. Most players prefer visual feedback and with the assistance of our TrackMan software we are well equipped to demonstrate any technical issues and show how students are progressing with the recommended swing changes. Each swing is videoed in slow motion and automatically uploaded and ready to be viewed. Each video is complete with all the data TrackMan offers.
