Lee preps for victory with K-Player device

22-Year-Old Has Relied on 3D Technology for Last 10 Years

(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.)  K-MOTION Interactive – the pioneer of innovative, wearable human motion training applications for golf, baseball, fitness, physical therapy and beyond – reports Minjee Lee used its patented biofeedback trainer, K-PLAYER in preparation for her recent LPGA Tour victory at the Volvik Championship, contested at Travis Pointe Country Club in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

Lee birdied the final hole to win by one stroke and capture her fourth LPGA Tour title. Recognized by her peers as having the “best swing on tour,” the young phenom uses K-MOTION products to maximize consistency, distance and accuracy at Q Golf in Melbourne, Australia. Her coaching team is led by sports scientist Ryan Lumsden of Q Golf and performance coach Ritchie Smith of Perth Golf Academy.

Formerly known as K-VEST, this technology empowers golf professionals of all-levels to better measure, understand, coach and train players. Providing coaches with in-depth knowledge of their students’ swings, it allows instructors to recommend precise drills designed to spark rapid improvement through repetition.

“Utilizing 3D technology has been crucial in maintaining awareness of my swing while on Tour,” says Lee. “Ryan [Lumsden] has helped me apply the information generated into drills and exercises that provide me with confidence day in and day out.”

The 22-year-old Australian now has six top-ten finishes in 11 starts in 2018, placing her in fourth place in the Race to CME Globe season-long points competition. In her short career, she has accumulated 31 top-ten finishes and is currently eighth in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.

K-MOTION is the leader in wearable 3D human motion training applications for golf, baseball, fitness, physical therapy and beyond. This revolutionary instruction-based program connects the player to the ball and links the coach to the player.

According to Golf Digest, seven of the top-10 golf instructors in America, as well as Major League Baseball teams such as the Seattle Mariners, and National Hockey League teams, use K-MOTION products for better training.
