So, you like to play golf. Ever wish there were a way to see how you can improve your swing? Thanks to a new Bluetooth accessory called SwingTip, now you can.


It's pretty simple: install the companion app, put SwingTip on your club, pair it with your phone, and swing away. The unit automatically detects your swing and and sends the info back to your phone or tablet. From there, it can give you all the info you've ever wanted to know about your game, including a full animation, club head speed, swing path, club face angle, impact zone, and tempo.

Of course, adding anything to your club is going to alter the weight, right? SwingTip weighs in at a mere 1oz, so it's barely noticeable. In fact, SwingTip claims that "even the top PGA pros can't tell a different in their swing."

SwingTip is available now for $130 and can be found right here.

Santa Clara, Calif. September 26, 2012, PRWeb.com –Today, Mobiplex announced the availability of the SwingTIP Golf Swing Analyzer—an innovative Bluetooth-enabled 3D motion sensor device that clips onto a golf club, mobile apps for iPhone®, iPod Touch® and Android™ devices, and a personal MySwingTIP.com account. SwingTIP delivers the ultimate interactive learning experience in a complete package that includes video-like swing animations, mechanical statistics, instructional learning and performance tracking scorecards and MySwingTIP.com. Golf enthusiasts that purchase the $129.99 SwingTIP package onswingtip.com before October 17, 2012 will receive a free Holster Accessory 2-pack (valued at $19.99). The SwingTIP package is also available at butler-golf.com

“SwingTIP goes beyond ‘activity tracking’ and ‘metrics’ to turn your mobile device into a personal swing coach that assesses your swing in real-time,” said Vijay Nadkarni, Founder and CEO, Mobiplex. “It creates the ultimate interactive learning experience by telling a golfer what happened, why it happened, and how to improve."

To design SwingTIP, Mobiplex engineers partnered with leading experts in golf, including Masters Tournament Champion and PGA Pro Craig “the Walrus” Stadler; Ray Leach, former PGA player, NCAA record-holder and instructor at Peacock Gap Golf Club; and David Butler, a 2011 Golf Digest Best Club Fitter and expert in professional-grade golf swing analysis technology.

Visualization: The Key to a Better Golf Swing

As Jack Nicklaus famously said, “I never hit a shot, even in practice, without having a sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head.” SwingTIP features a patent-pending ProView Motion Analysis™ engine that can accurately capture, analyze, and digitally reproduce a video-like animation of a golf swing in three dimensions. Visually analyze the parts and positions of your swing to “see your swing characteristics” and understand “why the ball faded left.” Review your swing alongside key performance metrics that pinpoint what happened including Swing Path, Club Face Angle, Impact Zone, Club Head Speed and Swing Tempo.

“I was amazed that SwingTIP was able to accurately capture and display my natural golf swing,” said Stadler. “With SwingTIP, you learn what your swing looks like and feels like when you make a great shot, and you learn how to repeat it. Engaging and fun, SwingTIP delivers the real-time, unbiased, and accurate golf swing analysis that golfers need to hone their swing to perfection. “

Learn, Improve, and Track Your Progress

To help golfers adjust, correct, and improve fundamentals, the SwingTIP mobile app let’s users save and review favorites, and provides instructional tips, videos and reference swings from Ray Leach. Practice session scorecards summarize performance stats and can be emailed from within the app to a friend or Pro for advice. Wirelessly upload swing data to MySwingTIP.com to see “Performance Summary and Trend” reports for any time period, and club-type.

“SwingTIP helps golfers achieve greater impact at the moment of truth – when the club face hits the ball. The instant visual and statistical analysis that SwingTIP delivers makes it the most efficient, effective and fun way to master the sport," said Ray Leach.

Lightweight Device, Heavyweight Performance, Energy-Efficient Design

Weighing just one ounce and with dimensions similar to a USB flash drive, the SwingTIP device won’t affect your swing. The two-part device consists of a Bluetooth-enabled 3D motion sensor that slides into a club holster. The two-clamp holster keeps SwingTIP securely in place on the club shaft, swing-after-swing. A built-in, pop-up sight lever makes it easy to properly align SwingTIP onto the club shaft. SwingTIP is also energy-efficient, turning itself off when not in use, and staying charged through a 200-swing practice session or a round of golf.

The SwingTIP packages include:

· SwingTIP Golf Swing Analyzer Package ($129.99 MSRP) – Wireless 3D motion sensor, club holster clip (with sight-lever alignment tool), shims (for smaller club shafts), micro-USB cable for charging, and Quick Start Guide (free mobile app with electronic scorecards, and a personal MySwingTIP webpage).

· SwingTIP 2-Pack Holster Package ($19.99 MSRP) – Attach a holster clip to every club; easily move the sensor from club-to-club for uninterrupted practice.

The SwingTIP Android app can be downloaded today at Google Play. The SwingTIP Apple iOS app will be available in the coming days in the App Store. (The iOS mobile app works on an iPad®. In the future, an optimized “made for iPad” app will be available.)

    That's actually really cool if it works well. I am thinking of getting a review unit and taking a closer look.

    It's going to be worth nothing once you throw both you phone and club into the pond you lost your ball in

  • John O’Connor

    now they need a swing grip to keep the phone from undocking and becoming an expensive projectile

      You might want to read the first five lines of the article. ^^

        Or just look at the picture...

        People and reading these days - I wonder how many read more than just the headline.

      Artem i have always enjoyed your articles and commentaries. I think this was more sarcsatic than anything.... i.e. swing grip/swing tip. Viewing this mobilly one can easily be led to believe that you attach your phone to a dock on the club since the picture gives the impression that there is a docking connector.

      On quick glance, I almost believed this myself prior to watching the video.

        Maybe you should read the whole article... you will notice why is your criticism out of place and perhaps be so decent as to apologize? Perhaps ...

  • Mickiii

    Seems to only be available in the US or something, too bad
