Swinguru has officially announced the release of Swinguru Pro 3.0! It is a wireless and markerless 2D & 3D Motion and Balance Tracking System created for leading teaching professionals who crave to boost their lessons by embracing new technologies that are affordable, easy and convenient!
The Swinguru Pro 3.0 includes several different features and functionalities that make it so unique. It will provide students with an in depth swing analysis in real-time. With the 2D & 3D visualization features, it is easy to see and measure key elements of the swing at any moment that, through any traditional video technique, would be invisible to the eye.
Additionally, with the Swinguru Pro 3.0, students are able to replay the swing as many times as you want which will allow for them to get a full visualization of their body motion in detail. The 3D views include face on, down the line, and bird’s eye view.
The Tracking System allows for students to conveniently visualize the invisible forces leading into an efficient swing. This provides an exact measurement of the stance width and calculates the precise center of gravity throughout the swing. All of this information will be automatically synced with the 2D & 3D images.
Because the Swinguru Pro 3.0 is wireless, markerless and hands-free, it is easy for students to capture and store each swing sequence as a separate file. Manual drawing tools are also available so it is easy to focus directly on the students without having to view it from your computer.

JumboMax Golf Grips offer golfers an alternative to the standard or skinny grips that are typically found on golf clubs. The JumboMax Grips provide more of a secure Finger-Palm grip which allows for a tension-free connection to the club. This promotes relaxed grip pressure, more consistent squaring of the club face, and a more powerful swing.
This past weekend at the 29th Biennial World Amateur Team Championships held at Karuizawa 72 East in Japan, JumboMax Grips helped Team USA capture a win!
John Mazzanoble, V.P. of Sales for JumboMax, exclaims, “One of the common misconceptions about our grips is that they are for mid to high handicap golfers only. But that’s not true. JumboMax grips are designed to help golfers of all skill levels. From high-handicappers to world class amateurs and Tour Professionals, every golfer out there can benefit from this technology. We’re excited to have played a part in Team USA’s victory and want to congratulate all the team members on a hard fought victory.”

“Handy Sandy: To many people think that a sand wedge is just for bunker shots. The sand wedge should be used for sand shots as well as most pitch shots to the green. The sand wedge whether a 54-degree or 58-degree has “bounce” on the sole of the club. This is where the back trailing edge is lower than the front leading edge, but used properly or improperly as the case may be is a very forgiving design built into this specific club to help in a variety of lies and situations. Use it on your short approaches instead of a pitching wedge you will be surprised!”
