MIT's second annual Better Golf through Technology Conference features David Ostrow, CEO of Body Balance for Performance. Ostrow will present research on the correlation between body movement and golf swing.

The study presented by Ostrow scientifically explores whether golf swing flaws are linked to improper body conditioning. The goal of Body Balance's research is to develop new training methods that improve golf swing performance and prevent sport related injuries.

"We are proud to be a part of the Better Golf through Technology Conference," said Ostrow. "We hope that our research will give the golf industry a better understanding of how the body's limitations can affect the golf swing, leading to new golf training techniques."

Data for the golf swing study has been gathered at Body Balance for Performance centers across the country through a variety of technologies, such as digital video capture and computer analysis of professional golfers in action. Body Balance for Performance will continue this research throughout 2007 to create a sample size large enough to draw accurate conclusions.

The MIT Better Golf through Technology Conference draws golf training professionals, golf technology innovators, researchers and golf equipment manufacturers together to discuss the latest golf technology and emerging golf fitness trends.

This year's conference will run from March 29 through March 30, featuring researchers from leading academic institutions as well as golf fitness experts. Participants will discuss the role of technology in the future of golf and compare scientific and instructional insights.
