HKGA Or­gan­ises Track­Man Train­ing Course

HK Golfer - - Around the HKGA -

The Hong Kong Golf As­so­ci­a­tion or­granised Track­Man train­ing classes for coaches at the Hong Kong Sports In­sti­tute and White­head Club Golf Driv­ing Range in late March. HKGA con­tin­ues to strengthen the col­lab­o­ra­tion with HKPGA as coaches from both as­so­ci­a­tions have at­tended the train­ing classes. Grad­u­ates from fu­ture HKGA coach­ing classes can teach in both HKGA and HKPGA pro­grammes.

“This new de­vel­op­ment of tech­nol­ogy of­fers great help on coach­ing. We now have ob­jec­tive data to help the stu­dents to un­der­stand their golf swings.”

- Betty Ng, HKPGA coach

The at­tended coaches were re­cep­tive to­wards this new tech­nol­ogy. “This new de­vel­op­ment of tech­nol­ogy of­fers great help on coach­ing. We now have ob­jec­tive data to help the stu­dents to un­der­stand their golf swings. The stu­dents are ob­vi­ously very in­ter­ested in un­der­stand­ing the data, which makes teach­ing and learn­ing more dy­namic. And the data from Track­Man also be­comes a ba­sis for us to com­mu­ni­cate bet­ter with the stu­dents’, HKPGA coach Betty Ng said. Robert Tou, HKPGA coach also stated, “This is a great tech­nol­ogy to let stu­dents know ex­actly what is go­ing on with their golf swing. But it would be quite a chal­lenge to help stu­dents to im­prove their swing through the data. Hon­estly, it also takes time for me to fully un­der­stand the tech­nol­ogy.”

Oper­at­ing in 12 coun­tries and sold in more than 40, Track­Man’s tech­nol­ogy is a sta­ple of golf broad­casts on ev­ery ma­jor net­work. Over 150 PGA Tour play­ers rely on it to fine-tune their game, and count­less more teach­ing pro­fes­sion­als are find­ing it to be a game-changer for their lessons.
