Technological innovations in golf are coming thicker and faster than ever before, and whether you realize it or not, they’re having a major impact on the golf swing.

In the modern era, we’ve seen a number of different technologies that have influenced the way golf is taught — and learned. The adoption of video cameras helped make it easier for golfers to analyze different players’ technique and match up what they were feeling with the reality of where their swing is.

It helped golfers and their teachers take a closer look at what was happening at the moment of impact, which helped golfers optimize the way they hit the ball. It shifted the emphasis away from how the swing looks, and more toward what it was making the ball do.
