    Abstract

    We describe a novel approach characterizing the difference between the swing of elite and amateur golfers when executing greenside bunker shot. Biokin-Mobi sensor setup designed to capture three dimensional patterns of human movements is employed to gather real time swing data. The captured velocity data will be used to investigate greenside bunker shots. Results show the effectiveness of the proposed setup in identifying the key parameters vital for performance enhancement in non-elite golfers in comparison to elite golfers.
