K-MOTION Used by 51 Instructors on GOLF Magazine’s ‘Top 100 Teachers in America’

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) K-MOTION – the leader in 3D evaluations and biofeedback training technology for coaches and athletes – congratulates the 51 K-MOTION certified coaches who were named to GOLF Magazine’s "Top 100 Teachers in America” list.

Some of the instructors honored on the prestigious list include Claude Harmon III, Martin Hall, Chuck Cook, Gary Gilchrist, Cheryl Anderson, Jon Tattersall, Mark Blackburn, John Dunigan, Bernie Najar and Andrew Rice. Each of the 51 teachers utilizes the wearable K-Motion 3D technology to precisely measure, asses, coach and train how the body moves to help their students achieve unparalleled results.

“This group of talented individuals deserves recognition for their invaluable contributions to the game of golf,” says K-MOTION CEO Michael Chu. “We’re proud that K-MOTION can play a vital role in the instruction lifecycle of the game’s elite coaches. By providing deeper understanding and more efficient training, K-MOTION is helping raise the performance of golfers of all skill levels.”

The biennial process, powered by GOLF Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers Credentials Committee, screens candidates against 15 baseline criteria, including their teaching experience and accomplishments, student portfolio and peer ratings, along with their overall commitment to the growth of the game, both through volunteerism and their ability to use digital platforms.

Working in close collaboration with many of these coaches, the company recently released two new features. First, the K-Coach Evaluation, which unlocks complex 3D swing data and translates it into easy-to-understand scores and visuals, so every coach and player can access and utilize this game changing information. Second, K-MOTION Tiles, which enable coaches and players to instantly see the 3D swing data tracked, making it golf’s first launch monitor for the body.

Beyond golf, Major League Baseball teams such as the Seattle Mariners, and National Hockey League teams, also use K-MOTION 3D products for better measurement and training. In February, K-MOTION was named as a finalist for the Yahoo! Sports Technology Awards in the “Best Technology for Elite Performance” category.

Through patented real-time audio and visual cues, athletes can connect perception to reality and master perfect motion in seconds.
