"We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors,
and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience."
George Washington (1732-1799) First President of the USA.
Tour players invest considerable time and resources to make their golf games more competitive. Their performance can be improved through more detailed collection, storage and analysis of their performance information over extended periods. The competitive golfers benefit from unbiased feedback on his/her shot performances. They look for trends, tendencies as well as shot error patterns, for better understanding of game strengths and weaknesses.
gMATRIX is the tool which allows the player to store critical information after any round into their personal password protected database through the Internet. Players and those they authorize may view both graphical and statistical reports. Only the motivated players will commit the 10-15 minutes required after each round to enter their performance information online for shots made earlier that day. The gMATRIX user will make better informed club and target selections and apportion training time more effectively.
CONCEPT OF OPERATION
gMATRIX (found at www.golfquikstat.com) keeps performance information collection simple and effective for storage and correlated analysis. The user goes on the Internet to the www.golfquikstat.com web site soon after each competitive round. Through the on-line forms displayed the user debriefs as much information relative to the day's performance as can be accurately recalled. After several or more rounds the user may return to the golfquikstat.com site and request many types of numerical and graphical analysis reports.
The player's debriefing their performance after each day of play will lead to consistently better shot planning and decisions. The player will more clearly define the shots targets and aimpoints. Players will more quickly recognize error patterns if they develop during play. Through the analysis reports the user gains a more complete and realistic understanding of past performance. Shot type and club selection becomes more clear and confident because of the picture a large number of past shot samples can provide. This knowledge also allows the user to more effectively apply training time and resources toward skills development.
