I've blogged about my wanderings since 2003. I love roaming throughout the USA looking for remote public golf courses to play.

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.  

Chet, anyone local can (and should) definitely split it up. I only proposed a back-to-back schedule for those looking to travel a bit so they could minimize travel. Even those traveling are welcome to stay three days or something and spend the time on it Day 1 and 3 if it can be arranged in a schedule.

For those of you on the fence, this would make for a great Christmas present to yourself.

And, I'm pretty low-pressure here with regards to "sales" tactics, but I will note that this deal will cease to be a deal when I reach some threshold. I don't know if it will be 10, 15, or 20, but it won't be more than 20, and it may be as low as 10.

I also have a local student who is likely in for two of these, so I'll be adding some people to the list when I get local confirmations.

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.

Excellent thanks for sharing. I am big on technology and the opportunity that it offers for improvement.

This is a great opportunity for some first class instruction. Unfortunately, the fact that I am old, set in my ways, and about to send my daughter off to college, my wife would kill me if I did this. Too bad...

Sure thing.

Flights into Buffalo (BUF), Cleveland (CLE), and Pittsburgh (PIT) are two-hour drives. Flights into Erie (ERI) are also possible.

I'll do all I can to accommodate a schedule. If you wanted to spread out two times downtown over three days (maybe a long weekend), we could do that, too.

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

If I recall you are the one with excessive booty sweat. It can get a little warm in there. The body suit/harness may need to be sent out for cleaning

    • Great info.  Played my local course here in Virginia Beach, (Heron Ridge) had a very short putt, hit it dead center and was shocked to see the ball rebound out of the hole.  I could hear it hit the plastic cup liner.  This cup was sunk around 1/4" from the surface, maximum of 1/2".  Tried the same putt on numerous other holes where the cup was sunk deeper with no problem.  Guess the greens keeper got lazy on this hole.
    • 2-Iron leaving 240 yards, I wasn't interpolating 255 yards. Driver going about 285. So, I assumed 180 yards left in. He said he would hit 6 iron in on a straight drive, it isn't going to be exact because the strokes gained are PGA Tour values from every shot counts. It might be dated a bit to. Also, it is just to give a comparison of 2 iron versus driver. I do not know his strokes gained data. Being a +0.6, I doubt the difference in strokes gained between 2-iron and driver would be that far off.  Yea, 4.1 strokes if the fairway is hit, which makes up 47% of the shot zone. 4.3 strokes if the rough is hit, which makes up 35% of the shot zone. I assumed 5.2 strokes the remaining 18% since it's a dead-area.  The 4.5 strokes is for the 2-iron. Not for the driver. I didn't say 4.5 82% of the time.  Here is an example. The % is based on the shot zone and what percentage of area that is made up by rough, hazard, and fairway. Now, the distribution of shots in that zone might not be uniform, but assuming that is all I have. The SG for each area is the SG chart. The dead-area, I assumed stroke in distance. A recovery shot from 180 yards is 3.8.  I just multiplied the SG by the area to get a weighted SG for this situation. Adding up and adding a stroke for the tee shot gives me the average SG for this particular hole, which is 4.37 for the driver.  A PGA Tour player, the % would change. Let's say they have like 0% dead-area. Then it might be like 55% fairway, 45% rough. Then on this tee shot, the average strokes gained will be around 4.19. Getting closer to the 4.1 average. They would not be hitting 180 yards in here on average. 
    • Maybe I'm not fully understanding the math here but you think he will average a 4.1 47% of the time that he hits driver? Even though he will still likely have 190-200yds left in, and from 200 out PGA Tour players average 3.19 strokes to hole out from the fairway and 3.42 from the rough. It's not like if he hits driver he will have a flip wedge in or something, it's still going to be like a 4/5iron, maybe even a hybrid. From 460yds on the tee PGA Tour players average 4.17 strokes to hole out and that's with a much lower penalty rate than ~18% so I don't really see how he would average a 4.1 47% of the time and under 4.5 82% of the time hitting driver. 
    • Ok, I did some analysis of this using strokes gained.    2 iron 4.65-ish (26% of the time) 4.45-ish (74% of the time) *Pray you just don't hit one OB Driver 5.2 (18% of the time) * Probably less since you said right is not necessarily dead 4.3 (35% of the time) 4.1 (47% of the time) *Note, the width of that ellipse is 70 yards wide. I think that fits with what you described as your miss being more than 50 yards. Could be a bit less, than that makes driver better.  Overall, it is 4.50 for the 2-iron and 4.36 for the Driver.  This is a one-off tournament, so not sure if you want to bring crap into play, dead on the left is about 9% of the time. Right is about 9% of the time, you said it wasn't as bad as left.  82% of the time you are good and saving almost 1/3rd a stroke over hitting 2-iron.  If your short game is very good, then maybe that plays a part here. 
    • If the process has always been that everyone plays from the same tee for the one CTP par three, it seems reasonable to finish the season following that process. During the off season, requests for a change can be considered. Our club has never included CTP as part of our competitions so I am no help.
