DEWIZ CAPTURING IN-TOURNAMENT SWING DATA WITH VIJAY AND QASS SINGH AT PNC CHAMPIONSHIP
deWiz’s Innovative Wearable Tech Captures Comprehensive Swing Data, Providing New Layer of Understanding of How Swings Differ On the Range vs. Inside the Ropes.
December 15, 2022 - (Orlando, Fla.): Vijay and Qass Singh will have golf’s latest swing analysis technology, deWiz, on their wrists to capture unique swing data from inside the ropes at the 2022 PNC Championship in Orlando this week.
Vijay Singh and deWiz broke new ground in October when capturing Vijay’s swing data for all three rounds at the PGA TOUR Champions’ Furyk & Friends tournament. deWiz has been worn during tournament play on the PGA TOUR Champions by Vijay Singh and Notah Begay III, and on the Ladies European Tour by Sara Kjellker. These development tests provide deWiz’s Data Science team the ability to analyze the differences and similarities between Vijay’s swing on the range and in competition, where it obviously matters most. The preliminary findings are intriguing on how the data backs up that swings are different on the range vs on the course, but also pinpointing what a player’s actual great swing are in competition and mistakes is a new competitive understanding deWiz is delivering its global ambassadors.
”Previously, when analyzing Vijay’s deWiz swing data, on missed shots Vijay’s hands dropped more vertically in transition than on successful shots and his baseline,” said Markus Westerberg, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer. “The PNC Championship is a great opportunity to compare Vijay’s data with the previously captured Furyk & Friends Championship data, as well as with his baseline, warm up, and practice session numbers. The insights are fascinating at we explore this new frontier of swing data through our seamless wearable technology and no boundaries for capturing our advanced data analytics.”
