The European Tour announced the launch of The Swing Index, the first artificial intelligence technology that enables millions of golfers to improve their golf swing. The Swing Index mobile app links golfers to PGA professionals around the world, providing every golfer a two-way, personal experience to send in their golf swing and create rapid game improvement.
The Swing Index was built by a team of the world’s top golf swing coaches and data scientists to study why players mishit the golf ball. The research uncovered that every player has a Primary Swing Fault that prevents their sustainable game improvement. When the player corrects their Primary Swing Fault, their performance dramatically improves. The research was converted into a mobile app called The Swing Index, where players submit their personal swing from their mobile device where an Artificial Intelligence engine (SwingAI) guided by a world class teaching pro identifies your Primary Swing Fault and produces a personalised step by step roadmap to unleash your potential as a golfer. The result has been sustainable game improvement for player.
Players can download Swing Index on the App Store or Google Play and sign up for their Swing Index.
