Mike McTeigue has been a pioneer in applying high-technology to the analysis and training of complex sports motions, especially the golf swing. His SportSense products embodied McTeigue's innovative approach to motor-learning, called Real-time Motion Training (RMT). This involves precise biomechanical analysis and customized, instantaneous auditory biofeedback as the athlete trains in the actual sports environment using his or her own equipment.
Mike is the co-inventor of RMT products for professional instructors the Swing Motion Trainer and consumers the Golf Swing Tuner and the X Factor Sensor. He has used the Swing Motion Trainer to analyze the golf swings of more than 160 U.S. PGA, Senior PGA Tour and LPGA professionals.
His work produced the "X Factor" articles with Jim McLean; the "Science of the Swing" instruction series in GOLF Magazine, the Golf Digest article, "How's Your Grip Pressure?"; and the Senior Golfer series on "Curing Your Slice"; as well as numerous articles in golf trade publications. McTeigue also authored the hardcover book and companion video, The Keys to the Effortless Golf Swing, which GOLF Magazine featured as top selections.
Mike graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA with a degree in Psychology, and he received his Masters in Business Administration from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.
