V-1 Coaching

Cliff operates a three-camera system in conjunction with the V-1 Software for evaluating and videoing lessons. The V-1 Coaching System is a state of the art multi-camera system that simultaneously captures multiple angles of the golf swing. This enables a Cliff to see more of the golf swing than he could with the naked eye. He is then able to accurately identify, diagnose and remedy errors in your swing. The V1 software allows him to not only capture, but compare and improve your golf swing. Cliff will deliver your video lessons straight to your inbox, complete with voiceover notes and reminders from your session.

BodiTrak Pressure Mats

New to Cliff’s arsenal are the BodiTrak Pressure Mats. These mats are used to record balance distribution information and center of pressure during the golf swing. While a golfer’s energy does not come from the ground, you do interact with it to create the movements of your golf swing. This interaction with the ground is reflected in your golf swing, changing your interaction with the ground can have a noticeable impact on your body and club movements. Boditrak allows your instructor to see exactly how you interact with the ground, V1 records your swing and FlightScope allows for an all-around analysis of the golf swing.


FlightScope uses Fusion Tracking which is 3D Doppler tracking combined with image processing. FlightScope uses advanced ball flight analysis software which displays the tracked golf ball throughout its trajectory, and includes all golf swing data through and after impact. Motion tracking isn’t just about ball measurement; FlightScope gives your instructor data on 27 different parameters that helps a player further understand face to path relations.
Those parameters include:
