Rose's Coach, Michael Finney fondly recalls a couple examples of where she started her relationship with her coach captured directly from the GOLFTEC TECswing systems:
Rose started working with Coach Michael Finney at GOLFTEC Irvine in 2014 when she was 11 years old.
In 2023, Rose and Michael connected again to talk about previous lessons and look at Rose's current swing and the progress that she's made to become the #1 Amateur in the world.
WORKING WITH HER COACH
Zhang began a routine of visits with Michael Finney, a Certified Personal GOLFTEC Coach with over seven years of experience. “He broke down a lot of things for me,” she says. Heralded for her incredibly high golf IQ, Zhang credits Finney for laying down a rich foundation: “A lot of my knowledge came from his expertise.”
LAUNCH MONITOR BALL FLIGHT DATA
Rose uses the technology in the GOLFTEC training bays to get the data her and her Coach need to start an effective session. "You see your stats, spin rates and how far you hit it every single time. Those types of information are very valuable to be as consistent as you can be when you're competing and trying to get to the top of your game." says Zhang.
VIDEO AND MOTION MEASUREMENT
Rose and Michael get straight to work, but not before reminiscing with a few old swing videos. No longer burdened by wires, she begins warming up with a 9-iron, immediately swinging freely into the simulator. The state-of-the-art OptiMotion technology captures Rose’s swings with HD cameras capturing face-on and down-the-line views, collecting over 4,000 data points in each of her swings
