CHAMPIONSGATE, FL., January 19, 2022 — Sportsbox AI, an AI-powered technology company that brings single-camera markerless 3D motion capture and AI analysis to mobile applications, announced today that Leadbetter Golf Academy – a global network of golf instruction academies and instructor education – has become an official partner of Sportsbox AI to begin offering “3D Golf” lessons with Sportsbox 3D Golf application to their students.
“I have known David for a long time – since my playing days working on my game at his academy at ChampionsGate – and have the utmost respect for his expertise as an instructor and long-standing leadership in the industry.” said Jeehae Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of Sportsbox AI.
“Further, Leadbetter Golf Academy has a globally renowned reputation for producing elite players and their ability to help golfers of all skill levels. So we are thrilled to partner with such an iconic brand in golf instruction globally to provide our “3D on the go” technology for nearly 40 LGA facilities and to work with their team to help golfers improve faster with accurate 3D motion data in every lesson.”
“We are known as leaders in golf instruction and technology, and Sportsbox 3D Golf is a cutting-edge technology that provides a crucial piece that’s been missing in golf instruction – 3D motion data on the go.” said Ben Riches, CEO of Leadbetter Golf Academy.
“We are proud to be at the forefront of the change, offering this unique technology to all our instructors and students globally.”
Legendary instructor and Sportsbox investor David Leadbetter added, “There’s no doubt in my mind that 3D motion data is absolutely critical for understanding the golf swing for all levels of golfers — Sportsbox will provide millions of golfers and instructors the access to 3D golf data in the palm of their hands.”
“Sportsbox is really an amazing tool that enables coaches, teachers and golfers to observe golf swings as never seen before. It makes our job so much easier to pinpoint problems, create solutions, quantify improvement and get golfers, no matter their level, on the road to improvement quicker than ever before. It’s going to be an absolutely essential tool in every instructor’s toolbox.”
With Sportsbox Golf, coaches and golfers have the ability to take a single 2D video from a mobile phone — with no markers and sensors — and turn it into a full 3D avatar that can be viewed from six different angles, as well as provide 3D biomechanical measurements in inches, degrees, linear and angular velocities. The app enables golfers to:
- 3D Motion Capture: Use of a mobile phone camera to create a detailed 3D model of an athletic motion from a single 2D video — without any markers using over 30 key points
- Highly Accurate 3D Kinematic Measurements: Kinematic parameters and sequences relevant to measuring and analyzing the body movement in sports – in full 3D
- Seamless Coaching Live and Remote: 3D data and visualization tools whether you’re with the student or remote; communication, CRM, and payment tools, as well as video editing tools for visually impactful lesson notes integrated for an all-in-one coaching platform
- Drills and Guided Personalized Practice Plan to Improve Your Outcome Goal(s): Guided practice and training roadmap tailored to your needs and goals
Sportsbox plans to work with a broad spectrum of elite instructors who believe in the power of 3D measurements — agnostic to swing methodology. The AI Coach will be built using the data collected on what creates optimal outcomes for different golfers based on their skill level and biomechanics.
