Anybody using the Zepp Golf 2?

Recommended Posts

I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor). 

 

Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes. 

 

As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing. 

 

The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it 

 

However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?

 

Please and Thanks for any input. 

 

V/R, 

Chris

I'm not sure how helpful it is in terms of telling you what to work on. It wanted to give me anti-slice advice, and I never slice!  Seriously though, my miss is a big hook, so I wasn't sure what to make of it.

I also have Zepp 2. I wondered about this ^^^ too, because the Swing Plane shows me consistently "over plane" from 4-10%, but like you, I haven't sliced in over two years (my miss is a hook or pull; rarely a push).

I was reading somewhere the swing plane function does not actually detect an over the top move (OTT). It only compares backswing plane to downswing plane and takes the difference. Curious what others may have found out. 

Zepp does appear to be accurate in terms of tempo, backswing, and club head speed.

I used the Zepp 2 and found it good and liked it, However, now I am using the Blast Motion sensor and really like it more than the Zepp.  Very affordable, and super easy to use.  https://blastmotion.com/

This isn't saying that the Zepp is bad, just for my personal use I like the Blast better.

Sounds like it's reading your plane correct.   If your miss is typically a big hook or pull, then most likely you are coming out-to-in.  just, not very far, and you've learned to compensate by squaring the club face to the path.   Most people with any out-to-in swing path slice or fade.   because it's actually quite difficult to square the face to the path on an out-to-in swing.      The sensor can only make ball flight assumption based on path.

Not sure if you still need an answer for this but the red "P" icon appears for swings that are registered where you didn't strike a ball. Handy for doing practice swings and then recognizing them later for possible deletion.

    • Thanks for posting that.  Now I know what you're trying to do.  The club is running parallel and you're using bisecting to describe that position. You're working on swing plane so I can tell you how to check for a good swing plane with confidence. Place the camera behind your hands and point it straight down the target line.  Draw a line with a swing app, I use V1 golf, from the hosel of the club and extend it to you're lower right elbow and stretch the line all the way up.  That's your elbow plane and the closer you can stay on that line coming down the better.  It may shallow below it during your transition which is fine, depending on your unique swing or above it if you are casting the club. So to be clear , hosel to right elbow and draw a nice straight line across those two spots from DTL. Can't tell but you may be trying to get under plane and getting too shallow.  That line is your guide to good swing plane.  Every swing is unique but that shaft needs to be getting near that line when the plane is coming down at some point. If you get dead on it when your hands are approaching your right hip, you're good.
    • I’m honestly really using my legs to start and feel like I’m squaring it up by turning my body around...kind of like I’m inside out...not in the golf sense but like I’m some kind of rubber ball with a cut in it being turned or squeezed inside out. It’s a hard feeling to explain. I think these are the correct motions. But the club isn’t behaving on video...yet. As for the hands, I really can’t feel either one during the swing I think they are working as a unit. And there might be a hit impulse but it honestly does feel like a swing. I can feel loading going back, I change direction with the hips that bumps them...at that time I feel like the club and everything is falling...and then I get that twisting inside out feeling I tried to describe. Now my hands are saving it at the end because they must. From everything I’ve heard good players talk about, I think these are correct feels. I’m either sending some forces wrong...or I don’t even know....but hey I can hit good shots lol. The goal is to get to scratch tho...all that and didn’t even mention that right leg in the downswing. But one mission at a time
    • Yes I’m trying. And ya, no kidding, it’s not like waving a wand. In my old/bad swing I got to this position with over the top and hit impulse and pulling the handle.
    • Day 46.  Another long day at work, another dozen balls in my indoor practice room when I got home.  Slowly hit, and I love the feeling.
    • Are you trying to bisect your lower forearm? ( not sure how that's even possible by coming down your elbow plane)  it should be your right bicep. Maybe I'm just not understanding you correctly.  In the model swing you did bisect your bicep ( upper half of the arm) and it was on plane. Now with a ball in the way I can tell you why it gets steeper.  You are trying to hit a ball and your right arm is firing to soon and wanting to take over for power but you don't need to do that. The right arm needs to stay passive until you post and release.  It will only steepen the shaft if you don't wait.  Your left arm needs to be the dominant player up until the last moment then you can use your right side to generate more speed by releasing the snot out of the golf club.  If you want to try something, hit some at a little slower speed and keep your right arm quiet and see if you have improvement. One drill would be to hit some easy ones with just your right finger tips touching the grip. The challenge is to break through with a ball in the way.  It takes time, stay patient with it.  But right arm dominance early in the swing causes the shaft to get steep.
