SAN FRANCISCO – October 28, 2015 – Pro golfer, Michelle Wie, links up with Zepp, the leader in sports sensor technology, today, to advance her own training with tech, and to provide free digital resources designed for amateurs and pros, alike. These video tips and drills take aim at curing what many consider the biggest plague to most swings – staying on plane.
“Assessing swing data shows what’s working and what’s not. I absolutely love the instant feedback that Zepp provides as it is the fastest I’ve seen compared to other technology out there,” says Wie. “It’s fascinating to watch the training methods in the sport evolve, and Zepp technology is truly changing the way all players need to train.”
“We [Zepp] diligently work to provide our users the most cutting-edge tools to enhance their game, and Michelle is one of the most progressive players on tour.
