PerfectMotion has upgraded its user experience in its A.I.-powered, motion training mobile app by introducing the PPI, PerfectMotion Performance Index. PPI, according to the company, is a numerical measure of motion efficiency from 0 to 100. As golfers work with the app toward the goal of repeatable, efficient body motion with every club, their PPI scores help them measure their success, track improvements, focus their efforts and challenge themselves.
PPI is a moving average, similar to a handicap, computed as an overall measure over a golfer’s last 300 swings and putts, and individually, for BALL and NO BALL training sessions for each club. As a golfer improves their motion efficiency, their PPI increases.
Golfers now have a simple, objective measure of performance for their drives, irons, wedges, chips and putts used to help them achieve the ultimate goal of the PerfectMotion® app: lower handicaps, effortless distance and automatic accuracy.
“The app and its AI allow golfers to train with purpose, eliminating their key faults one at a time,” said Rich Kosowsky, PerfectMotion founder and CEO. “The PPI simply measures that progress. It goes up as a golfer eliminates the most severe fault, scores more perfect motions in a session, and graduates to higher skill levels. We all know how passionate golfers are about performance and data. And unlike a handicap, which requires playing rounds to improve, golfers can improve their PPI anywhere and anytime, with or without a ball. All they need is their phone.”
Instructors use PPI to help assess which areas of the game to focus on with a student and then use their expertise and insight to speed PPI gains.
“Given the PPI scores for every training session, along with the trends by club, a coach can quickly assess a student’s key issues and create a personalized plan for improvement,” Kosowsky said.
The PerfectMotionapp can be downloaded for the Apple iPhone in the iOS app store and for Android devices in the Google Play Store. The app comes with a 14-day free trial. After the trial, the Pro version costs $5.99 a month or a $59.99 annually.
