Dr Paul Hurrion is a leading international Biomechanist in many sports which gives him a unique understanding of human movement. His specialism in golf has been acknowledged with membership of the Advisory Board for Biomechanics at the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) in San Diego. Multi high-speed camera analysis utilising the latest Quintic Biomechanics software synchronised with an RSscan Pressure Plate is used to analyse, explain and demonstrate human movement. In addition the new Quintic Ball Roll v3.4 uses a 340 fps high-speed camera to analyse how the golf ball reacts off the putter face! The resultant putting action is examined in the utmost detail. His advice has helped many Tour Professionals and Teaching Professionals to understand and modify their ‘putting’ action to the benefit of their own scores and / or their teaching abilities.
Paul contributes research articles regularly to many golf and sport publications, providing data and scientific answers to topical questions from many different sporting arenas.
Dr. Hurrion has worked with European PGA Tour Professionals Padraig Harrington, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Paul McGinley, David Howell, Danny Willett and many others on their putting and full-swing biomechanics.
As the developer of the Quintic Biomechanics and Ball Roll Software used in our Precision Putting Studio, as well as his extensive elite-level coaching experience, Paul’s expertise provides our Coaches with incredible support and an invaluable resource.
