According to the legendary Sam Sneed, proper golf grip pressure was akin to “caressing a baby bird”. Most amateurs would agree that achieving a light and responsive grip is much easier said then done, especially while in the heat of the battle on the golf course.
Now one German golf company is using revolutionary technology to help make Sam Sneed’s instructions easier to accomplish. Introducing SensoGlove, the world’s first golf glove with built-in digital sensors that continuously read the golfer’s grip pressure.
This glove comes with a sweat-proof 1.2-inch LED digital monitor on the back of the hand that analyzes the pressure of the swing through highly responsive sensors placed throughout the glove. As you swing your golf club while wearing the SensoGlove, you’ll receive real-time audio and visual feedback at 80 times per second. The SensoGlove will even show you which fingers are gripping too tightly, so you can adjust your grip accordingly.
“Every golfer wants to hit the ball far and the natural instinct is to swing harder and faster,” said David Bauer, President, SensoSolutions. “But trying to swing with more power causes a death grip, creating tension in the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders. The result is a less than smooth swing and, even worse, tightened muscles. Tight muscles result in slower – not faster – club head speed.”
The built-in digital monitor can also be removed to use SensoGlove as a regular golf glove. You can learn more about SensoGlove at www.sensoglove.com.
