K-Vest and 3D Motion Capture
K-MOTION Interactive is one of the first companies to introduce 3D motion capture within the golf industry. The 3D wearable wireless vest gives instant feedback to the player through sensors placed on the upper torso, pelvis, lead arm and lead wrist. Through the use of visual and audio cues, the player is directed into the correct position. The use of K-Motion will accelerate the player’s improvements when used with experienced coaches who can fully utilize the drills and training programs in coaching.
Industry-leading video analysis software that allows coaches to analyze a golf swing from a number of different camera angles, in slow motion, making comparisons to Tour players and showcasing technical changes to the players.
A Doppler radar that tracks both the golf club and golf ball giving 28 different parameters. This is the world’s most prominent tracker and is used by PGA and LPGA tour players.

Brings comprehensive, real-time ground mechanics data & insight. The force pressure mat is designed to be portable for use on the practice range for full swing as well as putting, chipping and pitching. Information on how the center of pressure shifts in the swing gives experienced coaches the ability to make quick and sustainable swing fixes. Knowledge of how the pressure shifts during the swing allows a player to understand how to generate maximum power with their swing.
The most recognizable putting system, it uses radar and lasers to give precise information, collecting data on things such as club path, face angle, tempo, ball spin and centeredness of strike.

All IJGT events are nationally ranked by Golfweek and Junior Golf Scoreboard. With over 40 hosted events, IJGT provides an excellent platform for juniors to increase their tournament results and acquire the recognition that college coaches will notice.
