Press Release: SwingLync® @SwingLync



SwingLync High-Tech Golf Training Technology Launches on Kickstarter


Wearable Swing Analysis Product Available for Pre-Order September 6

DES MOINES – SwingLync® wearable golf swing analysis technology launches on Kickstarter September 6. Starting at $179 for early backers, SwingLync is a first-of-its-kind wearable swing training technology that brings real-time body positioning analysis to everyday golfers through a customized mobile app.


Using three wireless sensors and a corresponding phone app, this high-tech swing analysis system teaches golfers exactly how to position their body for a powerful and consistent swing. Golfers see a detailed snapshot of their body positioning data during the swing and receive measurable feedback to achieve improved positioning.


“I have obsessed over the golf swing since I was a kid,” said Nick Mahowald, founder and creator of SwingLync. “After studying engineering, I realized that the key to an effective golf swing is proper body positioning. While attempting to improve my own swing, I was inspired to create an accessible technology for the everyday golfer to help them master the subtle changes that will have a major impact in their overall game.”


The easy to use technology includes three wireless sensors, each about the size of a matchbox, that fasten to the golfer’s waist, wrist and back. Data is collected during every swing and instantly sent to the app, reporting measurements at the four most important moments of the swing – setup, top, impact and finish. The feedback allows golfers to identify their biggest swing flaws and track their improvement over time with historical analysis features. SwingLync customizes target values based on each golfer’s 18-hole handicap, making it a powerful tool for all skill levels from beginners to scratch golfers.


“What attracts me to SwingLync is the ability to measure spine angle, hip and shoulder rotation,” said Warren Bailey, golf instructor at Island Lake Golf and Training Center. “I want to be able to show a student the point where they should stop their backswing because taking it back any further will compromise their accuracy, and power as well.”

SwingLync will be available September 6 for pre-order through Kickstarter. Pricing will start at $179 for the entire system and accessories, with limited quantities available. The suggested retail price after Kickstarter will be $299.


“Everyday golfers have struggled with their swing flaws for far too long,” said Mahowald. “Our team is on a mission to change that.”

ShoeTipsTM selects The Media Group to manage
its Public Relations efforts
(LOS ANGELES, CA) – ShoeTips announced today that they have selected The Media Group, a communications firm based out of Chicago, Illinois, to manage its Public Relations efforts.

ShoeTips helps golfers calm their minds and concentrate on the one or two thoughts they want to remember as they prepare to swing-boosting their confidence and enjoyment, and lowering their scores. ShoeTips is the perfect gift for golfers of all ages and abilities.
Flexible and Easy to Use
Using ShoeTips is easy. Before you play, select two swing thoughts you want to remember from the 18 provided. Insert the labels securely into the two base clips and slide the clips easily, and snugly, over your shoelaces. The reminders will be in full view on your shoes as you address the ball. To use them on your golf bag instead, simply insert the base clips through the slots on our enclosed BagTag. Now each time you select a club you can remember what you had wanted to concentrate on and clear your mind of the thoughts that interfere with making a good shot.
ShoeTips’ 18 familiar swing thoughts were chosen based on input from golf pros and sports psychologists. The labels are easy to change and organized into 3 categories-focus, relating to your mind, feel, to your body, and technique, to your swing mechanics. Can’t find the tip you want? Write your own custom tips on the reverse side of the labels with an indelible marker.
Mental Focus Promotes Peak Performance
Golf’s greatest players, instructors and coaches, sports psychologists, writers, and scientific research on performance and the mental game all agree: Regardless of a person’s skill level, if you can focus completely on, and become fully absorbed in the task at hand, with nothing left over for worry or doubt, you’ll achieve a state of peak performance.
The USGA certifies that using ShoeTips on the enclosed BagTag is “Permitted Under the Rules of Golf” (Decision #2016-0633; 11/9/16). Players posting scores for handicap purposes should always use ShoeTips on the BagTag, instead of on their shoes.

ShoeTips was founded in 2016, in Los Angeles, California, by three partners-Steve Lewis, our “hopelessly addicted golfer”, who serves as our CEO & CFO, Arthur Snyder, Creative Director and Product Designer, and Ellen Rudolph, Marketing Director.
