Benchmarks: your guide to progress

Benchmarks: your guide to progress

In  science, industry and sport, benchmarking is the method used to compare performance metrics whether it’s for;  results, consistency, time or cost. Using the OnsongSwing benchmarks facility during your practice sessions; you will be able to compare six bench-marked swing graphs, saved as your best from each club type, with graphs from your current session. Dynamics you can compare are;  club head acceleration, smash factor, follow-through, swing speed and swing duration.

These innovative insights can be used either in one session or over a number of training periods for six club types.Your review screens  for each club type are saved between practice sessions. This means that at any one time you have 48 swings stored in your device along with six benchmarks. The facility allows for easy comparison  between your current sessions swing graphs and your previous best. This provides a powerful training tool. it can provide fascinating insights into your training sessions and the differences in how you train with the different club types.

While reviewing your last eight swings, you can save a new best swing. This action will overwrite the previously saved benchmark for that club type. Recording a benchmark helps you celebrate your progress and see where improvements are being achieved.

To save a new best swing as a benchmark:

  1. Whilst displaying the review screen of choice, press M to save.
  2. Press Enter  to confirm.

To review your saved best swing benchmark for each club type:

To help you gain insight into how your swing dynamics change dependent on your club selection, the OnsongSwing lets you view your best swing for each club type in sequence.

  1. In the MAIN MENU scroll to <Best Swings> and press Enter to select.
  2. Press  ►► to cycle through your best swing for each of the six club types.

It is useful to compare your golf swing across club types. For instance, some golfers over swing when using longer clubs. Most golfers have a favourite club that gives them maximum confidence. Comparing your best swing graph with that club to swing graphs from other clubs can be a bit of a revelation.

Happy Golfing from the OnsongSwing team!
