App offers instant golf swing solutions

LA JOLLA, Calif. – With the pros in town for the Farmers Insurance Open, it provides the perfect motivation to work on your game and now, there’s an app for that.

Devin Fitzmaurice has coached golf for more than 20 years, but last month, he took his teaching to another level when he launched Golf MTRX, an iPhone app to measure the biomechanics of a golfers swing.

“There’s a chain reaction of events that happen in the golf swing and we are actually able to measure them and then give you feedback and even prescribe drills,” Fitzmaurice said.

The app works when the golfer puts an iPhone into the waistband of his or her pants and then takes a golf swing. The app instantly reads how far the hips rotate, the speed of the turn, the fastest point of the pelvis, the point of impact and the finish point.

Golf MTRX appThe app then charts all these points and compares your data to the optimum data. And most important, offers instant solutions.

“Once I know where I am off, I can touch this, it tells me what peak time is and it prescribes drills. It goes through step by step and shows the drills you need to work on,” said Fitzmaurice.

Fitzmaurice has lived in Clairemont most of his life and he co-founded the San Diego Golf Institute 7 years ago.

But he said the Golf MTRX app, which sells for $29.99 and only works with Apple products, does not require a personal coach to use. It simply requires a golfer who wants to get better.

“This is the real deal,” he said.  “That chain reaction of events that happens in the golf swing is vital to hitting the ball solid and now we can actually measure it.”

Fitzmaurice developed the app with two golf-loving partners including software specialist Steve Blake.

He said the app won’t make your swing look like Tiger Woods’, but it can optimize your abilities.

“We’re all made different, built different, we’re all going to swing different. We all have different strength issues. It’s about building a swing that works for you,” Fitzmaurice said.

    I think that this is what beginner golfers need, this app will help improve their swing and their whole game because having the right swing is the right start to the game of golf

    All golfers enjoy themselves more on the course when they are playing well. Even though some amateurs say they just play the game for fun , everyone wants to play well and shoot lower scores to compete with their friends. Some successful players, even professionals.

    Check out Hip-X golf ( This app is the first app to use the iPhone and iPod touch in-built motion sensors to analyze your golf swing. It provides similar information as golf MTRx but at a much lower cost. Hip-X golf's proprietary automatic swing detect feature makes the app easy to use and it's simple user interface does not over load you with information.

    I tried Hip-X-Golf. Works Well. Much simpler to Use than MTRX, in my opinion.
    Gives you Hip Angle, Hip speed, for a fraction of the price (7.99 vs 29.99!)

    Sounds great for us amateurs who are still working on our swing and posture for a couple of years. I feel that this app will be heaven sent to check my progress.

    There are three types of savings an organisation can make from a convergent solution: call costs, infrastructure and productivity.
