DeWiz’s wearable tech now delivers 14 comprehensive swing data points, adding steepening, shallowing, and initial downswing direction
April 13, 2023 - (Malmö, Sweden): Pioneering a new layer of swing data, deWiz has expanded its golf swing monitoring capabilities to 14 data points to help golfer’s precisely know their swing and use to make changes to consistently play better golf. deWiz has added three new downswing measurements, including Steepening, Shallowing, and Initial Downswing Direction. These precise measurements enhance deWiz’s swing analysis capabilities, which also includes Length of Backswing, Transition, Backswing Plane, five Tempo measurements and other data points. As golf’s first swing monitor and modifier, deWiz is breaking new ground in the understanding of the golf swing and using its game-changing data to help golfers increase their consistency and hit the ball longer, straighter, and closer.
“Like launch monitors do for impact and ball flight, deWiz is a swing monitor that is adding a new layer of data to better understand the golf swing, which is the root cause of a good or bad shot. These new downswing measurements deliver even more real-time data that golfers crave on every swing they take – anywhere and everywhere – and further optimizes how deWiz’s technology helps them make lasting changes to their swing. Feel is not real when it comes to the golf swing, but with deWiz golfers can precisely understand their swing like never before,” said Markus Westerberg, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer, deWiz Golf.
DEWIZ’S EXCLUSIVE NEW DATA POINTS: With exact measurements, deWiz empowers golfers to better know their swing, monitor the consistency of their good swings, and modify their swing to hit the ball longer, straighter, and closer. Whether it’s trying to fix that annoying slice or reoccurring hook, understanding these new data points for the downswing generally will lead to straighter golf shots:
- Steepening and Shallowing: Steepening the golf club is a way of describing a vertical club plane of the downswing in relation to the ground and will deliver a positive data point. Shallowing is simply the opposite with a more horizontal club plane and will deliver a negative data point. Measured within the first move of the downswing about 4 in/10 cm from the turn, deWiz’s data has shown elite golfers are generally between 2 and -6 degrees, while higher handicap golfers are often more than 5 degrees, indicating a very steep downswing.
- Initial Downswing Direction (IDDx, IDDy): Initial Downswing Direction is measured on both the x and y axis of the downswing to illustrate the exact direction the lead wrist moves from the top of the backswing in relation to the golfer’s downswing. The x axis is viewed from a down-the-line angle where a positive number signifies an IDDx going towards the golfer’s toes (recommended range of 5-15°). The y axis is viewed from a face-on angle where a positive number signifies an IDDy going away from the target (recommended range of 30-55°).
