(NORTH BARRINGTON, IL) – NewSpin Golf announces a wide ranging partnership with renowned teacher and broadcasting personality Peter Kostis, including a series of unique, free instructional videos available exclusively in-app to users of the award-winning SwingSmart golf swing analyzer.
One of “America’s 50 Greatest Teachers” according to Golf Digest, Kostis played a key role in development of SwingSmart. Featuring a small (less than 1 oz.) Bluetooth-enabled sensor module which clips to a golf club shaft, the system collects in-depth information on critical elements of a player’s swing and wirelessly transmits this data to an iPhone or iPad. Users have the option to choose video tips from Kostis based upon their developmental goals.
“I’ve worked with thousands of players over the years and SwingSmart is far and away the best tool for quickly and easily showing students exactly what they are doing during the swing,” says Kostis. “The beauty of this system is that golfers can use it on their own time to practice anywhere, or it can be paired with traditional instruction so users can bounce questions and ideas off their club pro.”
GOLF Magazine, which ranks Kostis as a “Top 100 Teacher,” recently praised his contributions toward making SwingSmart ($249.99) an invaluable learning device and named it the “Best App for Instant Feedback.” Ease of use and superior quality have distinguished SwingSmart as the clear leader in digital swing analysis. Its detailed, easy-to-interpret analytics include:
Key Stats – Tempo, swing speed, face angle, angle of attack; info on each and optimization tips provided within the app by Kostis
Path and Plane – “3-D 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 provides info on a player’s putting stroke to help them reduce scores on the green
Personal Best – Data from a golfer’s best swings can be saved and used as points of reference
“Peter immediately grasped the immense benefits of our product and his work has elevated SwingSmart far beyond any competitors,” says Angelo Papadourakis, CEO of NewSpin Golf. “He recognizes that SwingSmart provides the feedback necessary for golfers to best understand their unique swing motions and efficiently improve performance.”
Developed by an experienced software design team, the app is extremely user friendly, fun and beneficial to all skill levels. The tracked stats and “3-D Swing View” provide a real-time snapshot of how the club is being manipulated through impact, so players can adjust where necessary and learn what’s successful for their individual games. An effective practice tool for the off-season, SwingSmart features a special training mode that provides the key stats necessary to help players learn the proper swing motion, without the pressure of hitting a ball.
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. Widely recognized by PGA Professionals as a way to augment lessons, the app is available for free download via the iTunes store and will soon be offered on the Android Marketplace.
