)-- Data Design Interactive’s new “My Personal Golf Trainer” game for Wii features swing analysis and lessons by renowned instructor David Leadbetter. Incorporating the Wii Balance Board and new for 2009 Wii MotionPlusTM Controller, this game is the first to analyze the full golf swing in 3D space and give feedback to include weight transfer, swing path, angle at impact, swing speed, and more. Then, using Leadbetter’s 7 Steps to a Better Golf Swing, “My Personal Golf Trainer” offers instructional videos and drills to improve the swing. In addition to training mode, the game includes a practice range and an 18-hole game. “My Personal Golf Trainer” will be available in early 2010 at golf shops and computer game retailers for $99.

Data Design Interactive’s “My Personal Trainer” series takes Wii beyond a game and transforms into a training device. Incorporating Leadbetter’s 7 Steps to a Better Golf Swing, “My Personal Golf Trainer” analyzes: grip, posture, alignment, ball position, coil, swing shape, and tempo. Offering instructional videos and drills within each of these seven basics, players can improve their swing step-by-step and then graduate from training mode to the practice range and onto a full 18-hole game. Within the 18-hole game, after each shot the golfer has the option to have feedback from Leadbetter and suggested drills for improvement.
“My Personal Golf Trainer” records the full golf swing from address to backswing, impact to follow through, in the full four dimensions. It then offers the opportunity to compare the users own swing with an ideal swing to identify areas for improvement. This can be displayed in 3D, and the user can view their swing from different angles, and animated slowed down or sped up for detailed analysis.
Taking advantage of the new MotionPlus controller just introduced in June 2009, “My Personal Golf Trainer” is the first golf game to actually record and analyze the full golf swing. To date, a few golf devices have given feedback on clubhead speed and angle of impact, but they cost thousands of dollars and do not include analysis of weight transfer, swing plane or tempo, and do not offer individualized instruction and suggestions for improvement. Included in the $99 retail price is membership in the online 'Personal Trainer - Gold Club' which will entitle owners to free upgrades and up to 50% off future Personal Trainer products for other sports.
