Golf Science Center Adds OptiTrack's Gears Golf System to our state-of-the-art Training Tools

Optitrack Gears Golf System

GEARS is a full swing club and body tracking system used by PGA pros, club fitters, and club manufacturers to measure and analyze 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.

Measurements not estimates

Most systems rely on low resolution approximations of swing data, with algorithmic estimates filling in the gaps. GEARS provides hard data, actually measuring the entire swing as it unfolds.

Data. Lots of it. GEARS analyzes over 600 images per swing, in less than a second. Because both the grip and head are tracked, that data provides significant insight into a swing, even including shaft deflection—information that cannot be obtained by tracking the grip alone.

Full Body Data with Biofeedback

Use the world’s most popular motion capture tech to measure body motion with unmatched fidelity:

Body Tracking
  • Shoulder Angle
  • Hip Angle
  • Knee Angle
  • Toe Angle
  • Spine Angle
  • Major Body Lines
  • Kinematic Sequence

Optical Motion Tracking

GEARS is an optical (camera-based) tracking system, powered by 8 ultra-HD (1.7 megapixel) cameras running at 360 frames per second. It offers numerous advantages over other approaches, including:

  • Track any club, with snap-on club mounts
  • Measurements as fine as 0.2 mm
  • No wires attached to the user
  • Golf ball detection, for pinpoint impact location information
  • Simple system setup
  • “Absolute positioning,” with zero drift (unlike inertial systems)
