Attendees will have the chance to visit the V1 Sports Booth (#200) and try out the V1 Pro video swing analysis platform as well as V1 Pressure Mat Powered by BodiTrak during the the WGCA Corporate Sponsor Expo on December 9 and the GCAA Corporate Partners Exhibit Night on December 10. The booth will be equipped with a state-of-the-art simulator so coaches can demo V1’s latest technology offerings in true golfing conditions.

COO Mike Brown will be in attendance along with Ryan Groves (VP Sales for Boditrak Performance), Dallas Webster (Product Manager, V1 Game mobile app) and Joe Neumeyer (Ace Indoor Golf). This team will be demonstrating the “V1 College Solutions,” which are specifically designed to meet the needs of college coaches, competitive golfers and their swing instructors.

“So much of what gives elite golfers and programs a competitive edge is being driven by better technological tools, data and biomechanics,” said V1 Sports CEO Bryan Finnerty. “V1 Sports constantly strives to offer the best technology and feedback methods and to deliver them in ways that optimize improvement for individuals and teams.”

V1 College Solutions offer multiple options utilizing V1 Pro HD desktop and V1 Pro app mobile video analysis software and allows for collaboration and communication between coaches, athletes and their swing instructors. This platform enables users to keep track of lessons and swing improvements that can be accessed or shared anytime. V1 also offers turnkey indoor studio systems, complete with high definition, high frame rate, low light cameras as well as expert consultation on college facility designs.

This will also be the first year attendees of this conference can demo the V1 Pressure Mat Powered by BodiTrak. The first portable and affordable pressure mat to record balance distribution information and Center of Pressure (COP) during the golf swing, the V1 Pressure Mat Powered by BodiTrak combines real-time data on a golfer’s weight transfer with V1’s top-in-class camera systems and video software. This makes each lesson more impactful and can markedly expedite a player’s improvement.

Additionally, V1 Sports also recently entered the GPS game-tracking mobile app arena with the dynamic V1 Game app. With the V1 Game app, a mobile phone or Apple Watch becomes a golfer’s personal caddie and shot tracker. V1 Game’s powerful GPS data provides accurate yardages to greens, hazards and landing zones to help you navigate the course like a professional. After a round is completed, V1 Game’s intuitive performance analysis technology provides statistics (including robust Strokes Gained data) that show the user’s strengths, weaknesses and paths to improvement.

These new V1 products can greatly enhance the way college coaches help their players improve and track their performance over time.

V1 currently provides its college solutions to many golf programs across the country, including top-ranked programs like Duke, Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas and Florida.
