8 INSIGHTS ON BETTER COACHING THROUGH TECHNOLOGY WITH ANDREW RICE
COACHING BETTER THROUGH TECHNOLOGY WITH ANDREW RICE
“Every truly innovative high-tech product starts out as a fad […] Then comes a period during which the rest of the world watches to see if anything can be made of this; that is the chasm. If in fact something does come out of it-if a value proposition is discovered that can predictably be delivered to a targetable set of customers then a new mainstream market forms, typically with a rapidity that allows its initial leaders to become very, very successful.” – Geoffrey Moore, Crossing the Chasm
Within most technological trends, consumers are split into two categories: visionaries or the pragmatic majority.
Because visionaries see a valuable opportunity to evolve their craft and differentiate from the masses, these early adopters are quick to invest despite the high risk.
Then there is the pragmatic majority, they are more risk-averse and less likely to adopt until the new technology has become the established standard.
Well, coaches, the golfing world is approaching a tipping point. Day by day, Trackman by Trackman, radar technology is closer to becoming a standard within the coaching community.
To explore this growing trend, I have called on one of the early adopters to answer a few questions– Andrew Rice, Director of Instruction at Berkeley Hall. Not only is Andrew an expert and visionary as it relates to radar technology (he is 1 of 10 Trackman University Partners), he’s one of the all-around great guys in the golf business.
I asked Andrew 8 questions to help us discover the benefits and debunk a few misconceptions on radar technology in the interview below:
IN PART 1, ANDREW DISCUSSES:
- The price of radar technology
- The Art and Science of coaching with Trackman
- Catering to different ability levels
- Quick fixes and the learning process
IN PART 2, ANDREW DISCUSSES:
- Benefits for the student
- Best Practices and Andrew’s Trackman ‘workflow’
- Trackman as a research tool
- Ball Flight revisions
To learn more on how Andrew is using Trackman to enrich his coaching, please visit his blog at www.andrewricegolf.com. It is one of the BEST resources for outside of the box coaching insights on the internet.
Also, I encourage you to continue the conversation on radar technology and coaching with us on Twitter (@curiouscoaches). Andrew (@andrewricegolf) is active on Twitter and always game to answer questions and help others learn. Special thanks to him being apart of the interview and all he does to contribute to the development of coaches and golfers everywhere.
