“We’re extremely excited and proud to work in conjunction with Jonas and the team at Söderby Golf on the TaylorMade Performance Lab. The combination of the GEARS and Trackman systems deliver exceptional biomechanical, club and launch data that will result in the golfer receiving an accurate analysis and optimum custom fit.”

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A TMPL FITTING AT SÖDERBY GOLF:
Jonas Ekström and his highly-trained team of Master Fitters will analyse information obtained from the GEARS 3D system. GEARS is a full swing club and body tracking system used by PGA pros, club fitters, and club manufacturers to measure and analyse every nuance of a swing, in full 3D, from address to follow-through. Built on the same technology used by biomechanists and filmmakers, GEARS is the most advanced motion capture solution developed specifically for golf. An optical motion capture system uses high speed cameras to capture different angles of a golfer to create a full capture. GEARS is powered by seven 1.7 megapixel cameras running at 360 frames per second which look at over 600 images per swing to track everything that’s going on with the golfers body and the club.
By looking at the body, club and golf ball simultaneously, no stone is left unturned during the golfers fitting session. Based on the data gathered on the GEARS System, and the trained eye of a TaylorMade Master Fitter, players are then tested to validate that they have correct fit.
The GEARS data in conjunction with the latest in Trackman Launch Monitor Technology to measure launch conditions enable the TMPL team to determine the optimum combination of club head, shaft, grip, swing weight, and adjustable settings for the golfers swing.
“We are really excited about having the new TMPL at our facilities at Söderby Golf. We have built a long and successful relationship with TaylorMade and this new facility will only make our bonds even stronger. We are thrilled by the faith shown in us by TaylorMade by offering us this opportunity and support. With this fantastic tool for custom fitting highlighted by the GEARS Technology I am sure that we will excite our members and guests. We believe this best in class club fitting experience combined with TaylorMade equipment will help golfers get to the next level of their game. We are also sure that we will be able to attract new customers to our site in the near future and keep them in the long run.”
