Here are a few takeaways from Hugh Marr:
1. Always aim to improve impact
The key task for a better golf game is to improve the impact. All adjustments in the golf swing should be aimed to improve the impact.
2. Choose your battlefield
Find areas in the golfer’s performance where the least amount of effort gives the largest improvement.
3. Understand which drills are working
When trying a drill, the data from HackMotion and other technology can show if the drill is bringing desired results. If not, you might consider a different drill.
4. Practice with biofeedback!
Technology can give a lot of insights, especially for a coach to understand what the player is actually doing.
However, an important task for a coach is not to overwhelm the player with too much data.
Hugh prefers to use HackMotion biofeedback when training players. Audio feedback is a simple, but highly effective tool for the player to understand what is the actual position of the wrist. And the improvement is instant, even for Tour players!
