athletic ability generally allows you to excel at most sports but this isn’t the exact case with golf. golf isn’t about being the quickest on your feet, being the strongest, nor is it having the most endurance--its about skill and calculated techniques.
learning how to play golf can be quite difficult and expensive (hence, the common phrase “a rich man’s sport”) but finding a compatible coach doesn’t have to be. one of the biggest challenges that inhibit golfers from improving their swing is understanding and identifying areas that they need to work on. using computer vision, swinggo acts as a convenient and inexpensive virtual coach by providing immediate and personalized vocal feedback based on the data points of your swing which means the faster you receive feedback, the faster you can start practicing efficiently!
