Top 100 Instructors Brad Brewer, Kevin Weeks Join Swingbyte Professional Advisory Board
Nationally respected instructors helping refine 3D swing analyzer
CHICAGO, Ill. (Sept. 25, 2012) - Swingbyte announced that highly respected instructors Brad Brewer and Kevin Weeks have joined the company's Professional Advisory Board and will provide assistance as the company continues to develop the revolutionary 3D swing analyzer.
Brewer, who is among Golf magazine's Top 100 Teachers in America, teaches at the Brad Brewer Golf Academy at the Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando. Weeks, one of Golf Digest's Top 50 instructors, is the PGA Director of Instruction at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in Lemont, Ill.
"We're very fortunate to have professionals of the caliber and reputation of Brad and Kevin on our board," said Swingbyte co-founder Brian Payne. ""They have decades of experience teaching golfers of all abilities, ranging from tour players to beginners. Their perspective and expertise will be invaluable as we continue to build Swingbyte into golf's ultimate teaching and learning tool."
Swingbyte weighs less than an ounce and attaches to any club just below the grip. As the club makes contact with the ball, a sensor transmits a digitized version of the swing to Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. The swing image - along with measurements of club head speed, swing plane, face angle, loft and lie angles and tempo - can be viewed during practice sessions and archived in the cloud for future reference. With the information Swingbyte makes available, golfers can pinpoint swing problems and work on their own or with an instructor to correct them.
Brewer, who is among Golf Channel's featured instructors, said Swingbyte helps golfers "practice with a purpose."
"For someone to be able to make a change in their swing, they need to have a picture in their mind of what that change is going to look like," Brewer said. "Swingbyte shows you the change, both visually and through the metrics it provides."
Weeks, who has been named Illinois PGA Teacher of the Year three times, said Swingbyte reinforces professional instruction.
"You can tell a student something all day long, but most people are visual learners," Weeks said. "Swingbyte makes it so easy for me to show someone what they're doing, and that's when they really get it."
Both Brewer and Weeks say Swingbyte leverages technology in valuable new ways.
"I've been accused of being on the bleeding edge of technology," Brewer said. "I have some of the best technology available in my studio. But to have a device I can take to the practice tee and one that is very affordable for my students, that's the best of all worlds."
"I think Swingbyte is a revolutionary product that is changing the way people teach the game," Weeks said. "It's really only limited by the instructor's and the student's imaginations."
Brewer and Weeks join fellow Top 100 instructors Dr. Jim Suttie, who owns the Jim Suttie Golf Academies; and Brad Redding, director of instruction at The Golf Academy at The Members Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, S.C., as members of the Swingbyte Professional Advisory Board.
Swingbyte was introduced at the 2012 PGA Merchandise Show, where Golf Digest called it one of the "12 coolest" products at this year's show.
Swingbyte can be ordered through the company's website, Swingbyte.com, and purchased at more than 1,800 AT&T retail stores. Swingbyte's introductory price of $149 includes the Swingbyte unit, the free Swingbyte app and access to premium online content and service for one year, a $49 value included at no charge during the introductory period. Premium options include historical data storage, upgraded instruction and the ability to send data to instructors for review.
Swingbyte is a patent-pending three-dimensional golf swing analyzer that helps golfers improve their golf swings, whether they are working by themselves or with an instructor. Swingbyte captures key metrics from a golf swing and wirelessly transmits the information and an interactive visual representation of the swing to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth technology.
