San Jose, CA – October 18, 2012 - Rick Smith, world renowned and consistently ranked as one of the top golf instructors by Golf Digest, has selected GolfSense as his primary 3D motion capture swing analyzer technology to use across his teaching academies, learning centers and one-on-one coaching. Smith is known for having assisted some of the most accomplished golfers in the world including Phil Mickelson, Lee Janzen, Rocco Mediate, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and many others. In addition, Rick holds awards and accolades for his skills as a golf course designer and also authored a book entitled, “How to Find Your Perfect Golf Swing.” Smith was recently inducted into the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame.
GolfSense, a glove-based 3D motion capture swing analyzer that works with free apps for iPad, iPhone and iPad touch, launched this past summer with a mission to deliver the world’s most helpful training device in golf. Using real-time processing of over 200 data points per swing, GolfSense empowers golfers to improve their game by delivering easy to understand never-before-seen swing analysis, tips, and recommendations.
The truly revolutionary swing analysis features combined with helpful training tips and recommendations were an ideal fit for Rick and his business:
“After using GolfSense over the summer, I realized just how revolutionary this technology is not only for a golf instructor, but also for a student. GolfSense has the ability to empower the average golfer to capture their swing in a meaningful way, on their own, and receive instant feedback from the GolfSense App. I am also excited about the extensive data that the GolfSense App can capture, some of which has never been captured before, such as hand speed during the swing. GolfSense technology is a game-changer for golf instruction and with the great team behind the product, I had to get involved,” said Rick Smith.
Alongside being the marquis ambassador for GolfSense, Rick will also serve as a product advisor to continually provide feedback and help ensure that GolfSense leads the way in the mobile swing analyzer category. GolfSense recently launched an extensive update to their app, including over a dozen new analysis and settings features. When paired with Smith’s knowledge and input, GolfSense is poised to become a necessity for any golfer looking to improve his or her game.
"We're extremely excited to be partnering with Rick," said CEO of Zepp Technology, Jason Fass. “His coaching philosophy and proven instruction methods are perfectly aligned with our customers and our company. We look forward to a bright future together."
