SOFEA’s Top Swing Golf Robot 3.0 is an electronically controlled swing robot made in Germany. Beginners, advanced players and professional golfers can work on their own individual swing.

The Top Swing Golf Robot 3.0 allows the individual nuances of every swing to be taken into account, making it possible for golf instructors and students to work in a focused and refined manner on details of the swing. Golf players can train on their own. The sensors will initiate the swing by a simple push on the club in the set-up position and the golfers are then guided through the whole swing or segments of it. Golf players can save their optimal swing curves for future use by integrating their own swing trends, body height and range of motion. The instructor can define the path of the club without being forced into a particular system. The swing can be set to steep or shallow, fast or slow, while the wrists can be set early or late in the swing while taking geometric circumstances into consideration. All release and swing concepts can be adjusted accordingly throughout the computer program.
