The Golf Lab’s Ryan Kimber explains the fifth and final part of the Baseline Test, where a golfer’s swing is analysed includes using Gears to capture precise motion data.

Gears is an optical, high-tech motion analysis and body tracking system used by coaches, club fitters and club manufacturers to measure and analyse every nuance of a golf swing.

Built on the same technology used by bio-mechanists and filmmakers, Gears records over 600 images per swing in less than a second and is widely acknowledged as the most advanced motion capture solution developed specifically for golf.

Golfers can view and experience their golf swings in slow motion capture, displayed in glorious 3D from address to follow-through.

41 golfers teed off in the inaugural MST Golf Arena ilovegolf Indoor Golf Tournament at MST Golf Arena, The Gardens Mall, on October 26.

Hailed as Malaysia’s first full-fledged indoor golf tournament, the ground-breaking event was open exclusively to members of MST Golf’s ilovegolf loyalty programme.

Oblivious to the heavy rain that pounded down outside, the participants teed off virtually at Pebble Beach Golf Links in air-conditioned comfort and accompanied by catchy music.

Those who did not play well enough to win the main prizes still had good reason to stay back for the early dinner prize-giving, not only to enjoy the great food and camaraderie but also to see if they would take back one of 36 lucky draw prizes on offer.

The Golf Lab's Ryan Kimber explains the three ground reaction forces in a golfer's swing that are measured using the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate.

This forms part of the Baseline Test for all golfers who sign up for a new program at The Golf Lab.
