SwingTRU™

The GOLFTEC Fact-Based Motion Study


The most comprehensive fact-based swing study ever conducted.

Having collected data from over 90 million golf swings during this time, our mission was to make sense of that powerful information and provide a fact-based analysis of how body positions within the swing correlate to skill level.

We sampled 48 different body motions from over 13,000 golfers of all abilities to create the GOLFTEC SwingTRU Motion Study.

Through our findings we have identified key body positions within the swing that directly correlate to a player’s handicap – conclusive evidence providing further insight into the golf swing and a golfer's most efficient methods to improve.

We’ve highlighted six body positions in this study that most highly correlated to skill level, ranging from a professional golfer to 30 handicap.
