Starting last year, deWiz has been breaking new ground in swing analysis as golfers like Annika Sorenstam, Vijay Singh, Henrik Stenson and Notah Begay III have been utilizing deWiz’s wearable tech in competition. To date, deWiz’s research development program of on-course swing analysis has included golfers wearing deWiz competition and practice rounds on the PGA TOUR Champions, LPGA Tour, DP World Tour, and Ladies European Tour.
deWiz’s in-tournament data capture research will continue at this week’s LPGA Tour’s Honda LPGA Thailand. Precise analysis is underway by deWiz’s Data Science team to compare good vs. poor shots; monitor consistency of how much a player’s swing changes through a round and tournament; and seamlessly bridge the divide to pinpoint differences between swings on the practice range vs. in competition.
“This unique, in-tournament data we are capturing of our deWiz ambassadors is fascinating, as our data science team continues to analyze more swing data and our ambassadors increasingly recognize the value of knowing precisely what they are doing inside the ropes, where it matters most,” said Markus Westerberg, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, deWiz Golf. “As we continue to develop our “on course” mode, deWiz provides a competitive edge for golfers to know exactly what they did with each swing – whether it is on the practice range, in a simulator, in their backyard and now, on the course. Whether it’s the differences or where they are consistent, the insight is elevating their understanding through our easy-to-use, wearable tech that they simply put on and forget about it.”
Prior to this week’s LPGA Tour event in Thailand, deWiz’s Data Science team’s previous in-tournament analysis was of Annika Sorenstam’s swing data from the LPGA Tour’s Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions. Preliminary findings covered how her swing varied when comparing data between practice and in competition.
“As a practice tool, deWiz provides me exact measurements of my swing, which is valuable information because we all know that what you feel and reality is not always the same,” said Annika Sorenstam, deWiz Global Ambassador. “To have the ability to analyze my swing from competition with deWiz’s comprehensive layer of data points is exciting as deWiz breaks new ground in better understanding the golf swing.”
This “on course” mode is still under development by deWiz Golf and was used within the rules of golf and with tournament rules official approval. For the “on course” mode, the technology is in a stealth mode where all access to data and feedback occurs after the round.
DEWIZ – HOW IT WORKS: deWiz tracks the exact position of a golfer’s hands throughout their swing, providing 3D swing data via a user-friendly app that monitors a golfers’ consistency. deWiz helps modify a golfer’s swing and learn faster with its patented Learning Stimuli™, so they more consistently hit the ball longer, straighter, and closer. For golfers, deWiz currently measures 14 swing data points on each swing, including Transition, Length of Backswing, Backswing Plane, Max Backswing Width, Max Hand Speed, and Tempo measurements, and additional advance metrics are available to teaching professionals and our elite players program.
