Preliminary Testing of Golf Swings using Qualisys 3D Motion Capture
Julia A. Gambill, Meredith K. Owen, Jordan Byrd, John D. DesJardins, Ph.D
For the future study of consistency in golf swings using the Qualisys 3D motion capture system, kinematic sequence and standard deviations between swings will be analyzed. The benefit of improving the kinematic sequence in golf is to increase power and in turn increase club head speed to maximize ball distance. However, a golfer’s ability to replicate that power is just as beneficial, so standard deviations will be used to determine consistency of the swing over time.
