Gears Golf Perfect your swing and body mechanics for driving, putting, and everything in-between. SIGN...

I'll get right to it: I'm seriously considering buying a GEARS system, and to help fund it, I'm going to pre-sell some discounted instructional "experience" packages.

I'll give you two days* of instruction† for the low-low price of $1,000. You'll pre-pay and the time will be good any time between the day I get the GEARS (well, two days after that, so it can be set up and we can be trained) and December 31, 2022.

You noticed that I put two little marks up there. They're not the fine print, they're just these:

* Not 48 hours of instruction, obviously. By "two days" I just mean about four hours in the afternoon one day, and about four hours the next day. They'd probably be late enough on the first day that you could fly in that morning, and early enough the second day so you could fly home with just one night in a hotel or something. If you're somewhat local and able to drive here, you could split your session into two visits multiple days, weeks, or even months apart.

† Instruction would include whatever other sorts of things you wanted, too. Obviously they'd tend to be heavier on the full swing with the GEARS system, but over two days (and partly so you can take a break), I'd be happy to work with you on the SAM PuttLab for putting, or to work on chipping/pitching. It's basically about eight hours of instruction in whatever ways you want to use it. But also mostly with a cool toy. 😄 The GEARS instruction will also include whatever "deliverables" I can reasonably create in GEARS (like video of you versus a PGA Tour composite player, with the numbers displayed, or your before/after swings, etc.), so bring a thumb drive.

GEARS is accurate to within 0.2mm (the thickness of a sheet of paper) and contains just about everything you could want to measure about the body and the club. It's actually used by FlightScope, Trackman, etc. to validate their club data. GEARS is 8 motion-capture cameras shooting at 360 FPS, and it creates a 3D model of your swing with all sorts of things you can turn on and off. You want to see how "feel" and "real" align? GEARS will tell you.

While I feel like I can do a good job with video, GEARS is not a step beyond that, but multiple big steps. With a 3D model of the golfer and the swing, we can move the virtual camera to ANY angle, for EVERY swing, and see what the golfer actually did.

You can see a lot of GEARS stuff in action on AMG's YouTube videos.

BTW, if you're more interested in a single session/day of about four hours, DM (direct message) me for a rate.

Update (2021-11-01): This special offer is now closed. I will take care of the people who have committed, most of whom have pre-paid as they agreed to do when they added their names, and they will get tremendous value for their support. I will continue to give TST members discounted time, but a deal this good will likely not come around again for awhile.

8 hours of instruction with gears for $1000 is a phenomenal deal, at least compared to prices in my area, which go for around $400-500/hour. Wish I lived closer to PA, although might need to negotiate with my wife about hopping on this deal.

Yeah. And look, all eight hours probably won't be on GEARs (because I think it would be tiring to just make full swings for four hours), but I'm also not opposed to it, either. If you're up for it, I would be too. 🙂

Most likely many people will probably spend 2 hours on it both days. You can experiment with feels, see what types of different numbers are produced from those different feels, etc.

Erie (and thus Pittsburgh, Buffalo, or Cleveland) is a great place to visit. Each city has a number of good things to check out. If you're coming for more than two days, we could even talk about spreading your sessions out over maybe days 1 and 5 of a trip, too.

P.S. I haven't yet decided on the final pricing for GEARS lessons here in Erie, PA. It likely won't be $500, but it's going to be more than what you'll pay for this deal! As you noted, it's $400 to $500/hour in most places.

Sounds very intriguing. When I am working on changes, I usually film my practice. But even in reviewing the video, I’m not always sure how the new piece is affecting other parts of my swing. I’m looking at the specific change and other check points but can’t see ball flight data and club data. This would be like having a Trackman/Flightscope and super-accurate video lesson rolled into one. It looks like it would also show me what part of my body is limiting me and where I need to work on flexibility and strength.

Damn what an incredible deal. I’m definitely interested in this. I hope those who aren’t familiar with this realize what an incredible deal this is. $1000 for this is unparalleled in the golf instruction world.

That's a good point, usually after a 1 hour lesson and 1 hour practice session on a launch monitor I'm beat, plus my hands start to get hot spots.

For the price offered, 2 sessions of ~2 hours on gears, plus another 4-ish hours of instruction is still an amazing deal, even considering the flight and hotel expense.

I'm definitely interested.

Usually they’re wearing spandex or something tight I dunno if it’s for the sensors. Are you supposed to bring something like that type of clothing to a Gears lesson?

Negative. It is all supplied.

Hard to tell because I'm wearing dark pants. 

There is a foot bootie, knee strap, hip strap, vest and hat.

It's very lightweight and not tight at all. They have different sizes for the vest.

They also put sensors on your club.

I hear ya. The laughter that would ensue if I were wearing a spandex suit would totally disrupt the session for sure.

Not yet. I’ve watched a fair number of the AMG videos where they’re using GEARS and one of the guys is wearing some kind of spandex sometimes so I just assumed.

This wasn't in my golf budget. But I'm thinking of adjusting said budget to give this a go.

I have one question.

Would it be possible to split up the sessions? Here's what I'm thinking: Does it make sense to do half of your GEARS session. Go away and work on improving then come back say a month later and do the rest of your session. Does that even make sense? I'd be worried that I couldn't make a significant enough change over the two sessions. Where as with some time to work on it, as you know, I'm a bit of slow learner.

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..  
    • Like I was saying he's under the radar but would have played well at the Pres cup ....now maybe  in the top 25 in the world .. will make the next Masters..... >>>>>>>>>>> When it comes to motivation, Ryan Fox didn’t glean much from being bypassed for Presidents Cup captain’s pick a few weeks back. However, as he navigated St. Andrews’ Old Course to the tune of 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory Sunday at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Fox was spurred on by something else: his late pro-am partner. “To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warnie,” Fox said on the 18th green afterward. Fox, the 35-year-old son of New Zealand rugby player Grant Fox, had paired with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne a few times in this event, including last year when the duo finished second. That marked the last appearance for Warne, a regular at the Dunhill Links who died from a suspected heart attack last March at age 52. “There was definitely some extra motivation there this week,” Fox added later. “Maybe not so much the Presidents Cup, but definitely to try to do something special for Warnie … and I'm pretty proud to have been able to accomplish that.” Fox, who ended last year at No. 213 in the world rankings, is now expected to rise inside the top 25, 
    • Obviously Fox saw the discussions here and proved a point yesterday
    • It's been a long time since I've played alone, but I'm looking forward to doing it again one day. I like it as an intermediate zone between the range and golf with other people. I find it much easier to play alone, and it allows me to practice shots I otherwise might not think to try if I was on the range. Added bonus that it's very peaceful and low stress, and it's a nice thing to mix into the routine.
    • I quit because I have to. It's kind of difficult to golf through 3 feet of snow. Right now my issue is a lot of family demands and very little light. Also I often have issues with heightened expectations when I haven't been playing great as of late.  Since becoming an avid golfer, I haven't really quit golf, I've just put it on pause.
