The Myelinator™ Swing Coach Disrupts Golf Instruction

The Myelinator™ Swing Coach Disrupts Golf Instruction

Myelin Increases Skill Acquisition By Up to Ten Times
Rancho Santa Fe, CA – September 8, 2015 – ‘Tiger Woods – that guy’s got a lot of Myelin” says Dr. Douglas Fields, director of the Laboratory of Developmental Neurobiology at the National Institutes of Health. According to Daniel Coyle author of The Talent Code, “Myelin, the holy grail of skill acquisition, allows brain signals to propagate faster along pathways called axons. Recurring use of these axons (through deep practice) generates Myelin, which is like electrical tape for the brain, increasing propagation of electrical signals from 2 mph to 200 mph – its like neural broadband! Axons that fire together- wire together! As a result skill acquisition increases by up to tenfold!”
“Its about the brain, stupid! All human skills reside in the brain – there is no muscle memory” declared Howard Reisman, Own My Swing Founder/CEO who believes that we are at the dawn of a new era in golf instruction. Own My Swing has announced the availability of The Myelinator™ Swing Coach – the world’s first training device designed specifically to ‘myelinate’ the perfect golf swing for the individual golfer, based on body type. “This is huge – it changes everything we believed about golf instruction.” Reisman declared. “The Myelinator™ truly represents game changing technology for serious golfers to finally ‘own their swing’ without any swing instructor ever required again!.”
When asked about the competitive landscape founder Reisman stated “ Other sensor-driven products such as K-Vest basically analyze the golf swing. We don’t analyze the existing swing we ‘myelinate’ the proper swing into the brain! Swing trainers including the $175K current gold standard RoboGolfPro are base on feel – not on myelination and metrics!”
The Myelinator(tm) Swing Coach consists of proprietary Myelinator Academy Performance Software (MAPS) running on a powerful Windows 10 processor driving high speed graphics being displayed on 22” HD touch screen monitor. In addition, two (2) 3D sensors are attached, one to the body the other to the club. A customized ideal swing based on body type is then loaded into memory, with the swing path being defined by metrics addressing eight (8) positions in three dimensional space for both the club head and body. These become the metrics for the golfer’s unique swing. Practice consists of only fifteen (15) minutes each day on The Myelinator™ at home – no golf balls to hit. The Myelinator™ is the game changing technology for serious golfers to ‘own their swing’ without a swing instructor ever required again.

First Wearable Neurofeedback Device Hits the PGA Tour

First Wearable Neurofeedback Device Hits the PGA Tour

FocusBand™ Brain-Trains Golfers to Get into the ‘Zone’

Rancho Santa Fe, CA – September 28, 2015 – According to Own My Swing Founder/CEO Howard Reisman, “For the first time we are able to measure what sports psychologists, like Dr. Bob Rotella and Dr. Gio Valianti, having been preaching for years with regard to getting into the ‘zone’. Under pressure we have so many emotions that we must control.” FocusBand™ is ground breaking wireless EEG (electroencephalogram) technology which teaches you to shift from left brain conscious control to right brain non-conscious or the Zone or what the Japanese call ‘Mushin’.
According to Jason Goldsmith, PGA Tour Performance Coach. “FocusBand™ is a total game changer! It is the first wearable active neurofeedback device on PGA Tour and is currently being utilized by elite players to help the get into the ‘Mushin’ on command.”(http://www.ownmyswing.com/iFocusband.php)
“To perform to your potential in golf,” says Goldsmith, “research has shown that being able to switch to and execute in the right brain gives you a distinct advantage. The brain is calm and able to make more appropriate decisions in a shorter period of time.”
“While the brain is very much interconnected we refer to left and right brain for convenience and simplicity.” explains Graham Boulton, FocusBand™ co-inventor, “When you think about the left brain’s ability to command up to 40 sequential instructions per second it sounds like a fine way to control your golf swing. That is until you understand that your right brain has the ability to handle up to 11 million instructions per second in non-sequential fashion! “
The FocusBand™ is a wearable headband with three sensors that actually measures brain activity. The Neoprene headset and the woven sensors are perspiration tolerant and the measured data is displayed on a mobile device for effortless brain training to a calmer state of mind through audio and visual feedback. This is Neurofeedback – the training of the brain.
“I have personally used FocusBand for the past year”, says Own My Swing founder Reisman – “you will be amazed at the ability to narrow your targeting and to quiet the conscious mind in order execute that shot under pressure, whether it be to win the club championship or a PGA Tour event!” Reisman explained.

Why and How Did Jason Day Start Using FocusBand

Why and How Did Jason Day Start Using FocusBand

Here is the story:

Jason Day & Henry

Jason was on the range doing Trackman Combine test and came up with a score of “X”

His driver was not going where he intended it to go.

As luck would have it, Henry Boulton and Jason Goldsmith, from Team FocusBand were there and convinced Jason and his swing coach/caddy Cole Swatton to do a 30 minute session on the FocusBand and then go back and try the Trackman Combine test again, while wearing FocusBand.

Aha moment!

This time Jason’s score was 10% better than his previous best, after only 30 minutes on the FocusBand.

Jason’s comment was “Just imagine how could I could be if I did it for a few years.”

THE REST IS HISTORY – JASON DAY IN NOW #1 IN THE WORLD!
