Sportsbox 3DGolf Level 1 Certification

As you work through the level 1 certification you will gain knowledge on how to navigate the app and use the various features while in a lesson. Dr. Phil Cheetham will share the basics of biomechanics, from the difference between kinetics and kinematics, what 6 degrees of freedom is and why it is important. We will also share important information regarding our trackers, starting with defining each tracker, how they are measured, and the numbers being shown. Dr. Phil Cheetham will share some tracker truths shedding light on what the best players in the world do. There is no perfect set of numbers when we analyze with 3D, but we do have a ranges of what PGA and LPGA Tour players do that we will share with you. Coach Ryan Crawley will provide real examples of identifying swing flaws and what trackers are associated with those flaws.

Dr. Phil Cheetham

Dr. Phil Cheetham, an Olympian in gymnastics, competed in the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games for Australia, also co-developed one of the first sports motion analysis systems while working as Head of Engineering Technology for the U.S. Olympic Committee's Sports Science Program in the 1980s. He has also co-developed several motion analysis systems for companies he has co-founded, including; Peak Performance Technologies Inc., Skill Technologies Inc. and Advanced Motion Measurement Inc. (AMM).

With his work as the Head Biomechanist and Director of the TPI Biomechanics Advisory Board, Dr. Cheetham co-developed TPI 3D, a motion analysis system that is specifically designed to measure golf swing motion and efficiency using a respected biomechanics principle called the Kinematic Sequence.

Dr. Cheetham has worked on various research projects with elite golf coaches, such as Chris Como, Terry Rowles, Mike Adams, Greg Rose and Dave Phillips (TPI), Jeff Smith and Joe Mayo. He has also conducted 3D Motion Analysis Assessment on the best golfers in the world, including Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, Aaron Baddeley, Mike Weir, Pat Perez, Scott Piercy, Brian Gay, Brandon Hagy, Kevin Tway, William McGirt, JJ Spaun, Aaron Wise, Wyndham Clark and Patrick Rogers.
