Data Design Interactive announces new holiday golf gift idea

Sarasota, Florida – This year, a unique golf gift idea has emerged: Data Design Interactive’s new “My Personal Golf Trainer” for the Nintendo Wii. “My Personal Golf Trainer” features swing analysis and personalized lessons from the world’s #1 golf instructor, David Leadbetter. With this golf gift idea, your golfer can improve his, or her, game in the off-season. Incorporating the Wii Balance Board and the new Wii MotionPlusTM Controller, this trainer is the first product to analyze the full golf swing in 3D space and give personalized feedback. Using Leadbetter’s best-selling 7 Steps to a Better Golf Swing, “My Personal Golf Trainer” offers instructional videos and suggests drills for swing improvement.

At only $99, the trainer makes for an affordable golf gift idea. “My Personal Golf Trainer” is available at golf shops and sporting goods retailers. To buy the trainer online, visit To learn more about Data Design Interactive and its “My Personal Trainer” series, visit

“My Personal Golf Trainer” takes the Wii beyond a game console and transforms it into a training device – this isn’t your typical golf gift idea. “My Personal Golf Trainer” analyzes grip, posture, alignment, ball position, coil, swing shape and tempo. Instructional videos and drills within each of these seven basics allow players to improve their swing step-by-step. They will graduate from training mode to the practice range and then play a full 18-hole game.

“What you get from ‘My Personal Golf Trainer,’ more than anything else, is feedback,” says David Leadbetter, coach to countless PGA Tour, European PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and Champions Tour players. “One of the big problems in golf is that what we feel we do and what we actually do are two different things. With ‘My Personal Golf Trainer’ in hand, you are getting instant feedback and you know whether you are doing it right or wrong.”

To date, a few golf training devices have been available for the home, but have only given basic feedback limited to just the impact portion of a swing. “My Personal Golf Trainer” is comparable to professional golf training lessons, which cost thousands of dollars, and similarly, the trainer provides complete analysis of clubhead speed, angle and force through the entire swing process, including weight transfer, swing plane and tempo.

“As the saying goes, ‘Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect,’ and that’s what this golf trainer allows you to do,” says Leadbetter, namesake of 27 David Leadbetter Golf Academies located around the world.
