iSlice app to improve your swing
December 13, 2010

Mt Lawley Golf Club Professional Duncan Kegg has developed an application for the iPhone that will help golfers around the world knock strokes off their scorecard. The aptly named iSlice Golf app trains your hands to stay in the right position as you move through key positions of your golf swing.

iSlice Golf has reached top 5 in Australia, top 25 in the USA (Sports category) and featured in "New and Noteworthy" in iTunes. The app has also attracted interest in prominent Australian golf press such as "Golf Australia", "Inside Golf"and "Pacific Golfer". With solid sales in Australia Duncan is looking to help European golfers discover iSlice Golf and improve their game in the off season.

"95% of golfers come to me wanting advice on how to fix their slice,"said iSlice Golf inventor Duncan Kegg.

"Using the iPhone's built-in accelerometer, the iSlice Golf app monitors the position of a golfer's hands and forearms at six critical stages of their golf swing. The iPhone becomes an extension of the clubface, the app tells them if they're in the right position and if not, where they should be."

"A golfer's clubface rotates 90 degrees from addressing the ball to the top of the backswing. The iSlice Golf app detects the rotation of the club on the way up, on the way down, at the time the club would hit the ball and on the follow through."

"Unlike a lot of apps on the iPhone, this is not a game, it's a training aid that teaches you where your hands need to be to execute a straight-down-the-middle drive. Direct feedback is so much better than looking at video after the event."

"With iSlice Golf you can practice just about anywhere, it's all about reinforcing what you learn on the driving range. But you don't need to be on a golf course or have a golf club to learn how to improve your golf swing you can be in your living room, backyard or at the the office."

The iSlice works for both right and left handed golfers and comes with instructional videos to explain how it works.

"I don't think there's a golfer in the world that couldn't make use of a teaching aid like iSlice Golf. Very few players have played the perfect game but this could help everyone move one step closer."

The iSlice Golf app is available from the iPhone apps store for US $5.99.
