SwingSmart Receives Coveted GOLF Magazine ‘Techy Award’

Leading-Edge Swing Analyzer Heralded for Delivering Detailed Swing Stats Direct to Smartphone and Tablet Devices

(NORTH BARRINGTON, IL) – NewSpin Golf announces that the SwingSmart – its innovative golf swing analyzer that provides in-depth information on critical elements of a golfer’s swing – has received a GOLF Magazine “Techy Award” in the Training Aid category.

Appearing in the November issue, this latest distinction comes after the publication last year named the SwingSmart “Best App for Instant Feedback.” It cites the system’s ability to identify and help correct swing flaws by gathering key data points. This occurs via a Bluetooth-enabled sensor module weighing less than 1 oz. that securely clips to a golf club shaft and instantly transmits information to an app on the user’s iOS or Android device.

“This exceptional, independent validation of our leadership in the training category has been made possible by our advanced engineering and intelligent design,” says Angelo Papadourakis, CEO of NewSpin Golf. “By spending thousands of hours on development, we’ve created a tool that helps golfers of all skill levels make their swings more consistent, efficient and repeatable.”

Available for free download on the Google Play and iTunes stores, the SwingSmart app allows information to be viewed immediately, shared with an instructor, or saved for future reference.  It also includes a defining feature of the system – instructional videos through which renowned teacher Peter Kostis provides a variety of swing tips to help players optimize performance.

Detailed, easy-to-interpret data delivered instantaneously by the SwingSmart system ($249.99) includes:
* Key Stats – Tempo, swing speed, face angle, shaft lean, club path; info on each and optimization tips provided within the app by world-renowned instructor Peter Kostis
* Path and Plane – 3D Swing View shows 360-degrees of a player’s swing motion, highlighting the exact route of the club head from any angle
* Putting Results – More than just a full-swing tool, the system also provides info on the putting stroke to help players lower the number of putts taken per round
* Personal Best – Data from a golfer’s best swings can be saved and used as points of reference

Developed by a team of expert technologists, SwingSmart provides a real-time snapshot of how the club is being manipulated through impact. This allows players to adjust and learn what is successful for their individual games. A great, year-round practice tool, SwingSmart features a special Training mode that provides the key data necessary to help players learn the proper swing motion, without the pressure of hitting a ball.

Earlier this year, the company launched the SwingSmart Duo, which incorporates HiQ Technology.  Requiring zero user set-up, adjustment or calibration, HiQ is built using a proprietary pattern recognition process not found anywhere else in the industry, which increases the accuracy of captured swing data, including the renowned SwingSmart 3D Swing View. It utilizes a patent-pending algorithm that adapts to each user's swing to faithfully measure their drives, chips and putts.

Designed and assembled in the USA, SwingSmart’s portable sensor module comes with a personal carrying case and rechargeable battery that lasts more than four hours. It is widely recognized by PGA Professionals as a useful way to augment lessons.
