The Morgan Creek Performance Golf Academy is one of only two locations in Canada to offer GEARS Golf. So, what is GEARS Golf?
Built on the same 3D measurement technology used by biomechanists and filmmakers, GEARS is the most advanced motion capture solution developed specifically for golf.
Comprehensive club data, in 3D
GEARS offers more data about your swing, with more accuracy, than any other tool in golf:
- Full Swing Path
- Impact Location
- Clubhead Speed
- Deflection Drop
- Shaft Deflection
- Face HEading
- In/Out Path
- Angle of Attack
Full Body Data with Biofeedback
Use the world's most popular motion capture technology to measure body motion with unmatched fidelity:
- Shoulder Angle
- Hip Angle
- Knee Angle
- Toe Angle
- Spine Angle
- Major Body Lines
- Kinematic Sequence
What Makes GEARS so Accurate?
Measurements, not estimates. Most systems rely on low resolution approximations of swing data, with algorithmic estimates filling in the gaps. GEARS provides hard data, actually measuring the entire swing as it unfolds.
Data. Lots of it. GEARS analyzes over 600 images per swing, in less than a second. Because both the grip and head are tracked, that data provides significant insight into a swing, even including shaft deflection—information that cannot be obtained by tracking the grip alone.
GEARS is an optical (camera-based) tracking system, powered by multiple high-speed, ultra-HD cameras. It offers numerous advantages over other approaches, including:
- Track any club, with snap-on club mounts
- Measurements as fine as 0.2mm (about the thickness of this brochure)
- No wires attached to the user
- Can also detect the golf ball, for pinpoint impact location information
- Simple system setup
- “Absolute positioning,” with zero drift (unlike inertial systems)
