Description

    Technical Field
  • The present application relates to a golf coach station.
  • Related Art
  • Golf swing technique is a sensory training, and mainly relates to a player's swing angle, swing plane, swing action balance, and factors such as movement and stress effect caused by correct swing timing. Currently, golf equipment still lacks of systematic coach teaching equipment that can provide elementary courses for golf fans and can also improve the swing technique of a player.
  • The publication No. CN1633319A discloses a golf simulator, which is used to provide a striking plane, and enables a user to strike a ball toward a screen to simulate a golf court. However, the defect of the technology lies in that how a player changes a swing action to adapt to a requirement of a slope to a swing plane is not actually solved, which is not conducive to improving the swing technique of the player at the slope.
  • A PCT international application having an application No. WO2008071031A1 discloses an inflatable golf swing simulator, which is comprised of an inflatable circular object, so that a user simulates a swing posture by using a specific tool. The defect lies in that, the simulator after being inflated forms a circle of 360 degrees and a fixed plane, which does not conform to the idea of the gold swing. Moreover, the simulator is limited to practice postures by using the specific tool, and cannot implement striking practice. As all known, whether the golf swing action or the posture is correct generally needs to be determined according to a striking effect and a trajectory of a golf ball, and merely practicing the posture is not conducive to improving the level of the player.
  • The invention patent having the application No. 201110058886.1 discloses a gold coach station, which is used to implement striking practice of a player. This patent is advantageous to the swing training of golf players, but also has some defects:
    arc-shaped swing plane slide rail angle cannot adapt to changes of figures of the players, lengths of the clubs, and the slopes of the stand positions; secondly, simulation to the swing plane is not accurate enough; and thirdly, the sliding and elasticity of the slide rail are still imperfect.
  • The publication No. CN102166410A discloses a golf coach station, comprising an arc-shaped swing plane testing rail, wherein the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail comprises a takeaway section, a striking section, and a follow-through section connected in sequence. However, the defect of the technology lies in that it only provide simple swing posture practicing for a player, could not provide intelligent training for the player.
  • The publication No. CN2638793Y discloses a swing practicing machine, comprising an arc orbit whose surface length is arranged according to the biggest swing amplitude of the cue driving end when the customer swings, and a fixing seat which is arranged at the bottom of the arc orbit to fix the arc orbit in a scheduled using angle state; the arc orbit can provide a side guiding support to form a path which can be used for supporting. This technology also only assists and trains the golf beginner to reach the correct swing gesture, cannot help the player to improve the level of the player.
  • SUMMARY
  • A technical problem to be solved in the present application is to overcome the defect of the prior art, and provide a golf coach station used for simulating swing tracks of "two planes" to test the correctness of a swing action of a player and for striking practice of a player. The technical problem of the present application is solved by using the technical features of a golf coach station according to claim 1.
  • The present application performs innovation and improvement on a technical structure of a swing plane testing rail, the takeaway section and the follow-through section of the swing plane testing rail are each formed by connecting arc-shaped sections through movable joints, and the curvature radiuses of the takeaway section and the follow-through section may be adjusted flexibly, so that the diameter of the whole swing plane testing rail is adjusted freely between 1600 mm and 2000 mm, and at the same time, rising angles are formed on the takeaway section and the follow-through section. Compared with the prior art, the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail of the present application simulates adjustable swing tracks of "two planes", before rising, the whole swing plane testing rail is in the same plane S1, and after rising, two end points of the swing plane testing rail and the lowest point of the striking section of the swing plane testing rail form a second plane S2, the takeaway section and the follow-through section of the swing plane testing rail respectively smoothly transit from the striking section from the plane S1 to the plane S2, and an angle β (that is, a rising angle of the takeaway section and the follow-through section) between the plane S1 and the plane S2 is preferably adjustable freely between 0 and 30 degrees. The adjustable swing tracks of "two planes" provided in the present application can perform testing and simulation on swing tracks of a player by adjusting the curvature radiuses and the rising angle, so that the complete swing track of the player is visible so as to find an error of the swinging actions of the player. At the same time, the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail of the present application can further simulate an optimal swing plane for players with different figures, different golf clubs and different standing position slopes, and the players can test the correctness of own swinging actions by the coach station provided by the present application, and can also do the striking training to improve the striking action by the coach station provided by the present application.
  • The movable joint comprises a two-way movable joint and a three-way movable joint, the two-way movable joint is configured to adjust the curvature radiuses of the takeaway section and the follow-through section to control expansion and shrinkage of the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail, and the three-way movable joint is configured to adjust an angle between adjacent arc-shaped sections to control the curvature radiuses of the takeaway section and the follow-through section and so as to control expansion and shrinkage of the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail, and is configured to make the end portions of the takeaway section and the follow-through section form rising angles.
  • Preferably:
    The takeaway section comprises 13 arc-shaped sections, the third movable joint, the fifth movable joint, the seventh movable joint and the ninth movable joint from the end portion of the takeaway section are three-way movable joints, and other movable joints of the takeaway section are two-way movable joints. The follow-through section comprises 9 arc-shaped sections, the second movable joint, the fourth movable joint and the sixth movable joint from the end portion of the follow-through section are three-way movable joints, and other movable joints of the follow-through section are two-way movable joints.
  • In the above preferred solution, the two-way movable joints and the three-way movable joints are used to implement adjustment of the curvature radiuses and the rising angles, and the structure has a low implementation cost and is not easily loose after being adjusted. Especially, by using the intervallic manner of disposing the two-way movable joints and the three-way movable joints, the three-way movable joints are used as adjustment joints of the curvature radiuses and are also used for forming the rising angles; therefore, the setting enables the testing rail to be still smooth after being expanded and rised, without any obvious bevel. The first movable joint and second movable joint of the takeaway section and the first movable joint of the follow-through section all use the design of the two-way movable joint, so that an initial swinging action of the player is unconstrained and correct.
  • Preferably, the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail further comprises a flexible material pad passing through various sections, and a polyformaldehyde bar rail fixed on the flexible material pad. The flexible material pad has certain elasticity and flexibility, and in combination with the relatively good rigidity of the polyformaldehyde bar rail, the testing rail of the preferred solution has smooth tracks after curvature adjustment and rising; meanwhile, the flexible material pad is used and has certain elasticity, when the swinging action of the player is incorrect, the club generates an over-large pressure on the testing rail, on one hand, the flexible material pad can function as a buffer, and on the other hand, the flexible material pad can generate a rebound force on the club, so that the player can sense the incorrectness of the action. The preferred solution selects the polyformaldehyde bar to be used as the rail to contact with the club, and among various selectable material, the polyformaldehyde bar rail not only has a very low friction coefficient, but also has a good balance on rigidity and elasticity, which can generate adaptive elastic deformation during adjustment of the curvature radiuses and the rising angles, thereby ensuring the smoothness of the testing rail. However, in a striking process of the player, even under the action force of the club, the polyformaldehyde bar rail won't generate local elastic deformation, so that the club will not shake, and relatively, a nylon bar in the prior art has a smooth surface and can reduce the friction between the club and the nylon bar, however, the nylon bar is also a flexible material, which will generate an over-large deformation under the action force of the club, and the over-large deformation easily cause the club to shake in a high-speed motion of the club, especially in a case that the testing rail needs to be adjusted the curvature and the rising angle, the nylon bar has deformations in different degrees at various sections, thereby influencing the smoothness of the testing rail. Moreover, the hardness of the polyformaldehyde bar rail is lower than most clubs, and even there is a friction, the club will not be damaged.
  • Preferably, the flexible material pad is higher than upper surfaces of the various sections by 2 to 3 mm, a linear slot is disposed on an upper surface of the flexible material pad, and the width of the opening of the linear slot is less than the width of the middle of the linear slot, the polyformaldehyde bar rail is clamped in the linear slot, and an upper surface of the polyformaldehyde bar rail is higher than the upper surface of the flexible material pad by 2 to 3 mm. By using the opening design of the linear slot of the preferred solution, and the settings that the flexible pad is higher than various sections by 2 to 3 mm and the polyformaldehyde bar rail is higher by 2 to 3 mm, the polyformaldehyde bar rail can be prevented from departing, and the club can also be prevented from having friction with other components other than the polyformaldehyde bar rail. Moreover, the setting that the flexible pad is higher than each section by 2 to 3 mm enables the flexible pad to have a deformation space in multiple directions, thereby forming a buffer effect in multiple directions.
  • Preferably, a player stand station is further comprised. The player stand station is used for simulating player stand slope surfaces having different directions and different slopes. The striking section of the arc-shaped swing plane testing rail is provided with a testing rail support plate, a lifting shaft is connected at a back surface of the testing rail support plate, a lifting shaft sleeve corresponding to the lifting shaft is disposed on the player stand station, the lifting shaft is connected to the lifting shaft sleeve, a lifting stroke of the lifting shaft is 1 to 200 mm, and the lifting shaft sleeve is provided with a lifting limit locking mechanism used for locking a fixed position of the lifting shaft. The takeaway section and the follow-through section are connected respectively by an air spring bar to a pin boss disposed at an outer side edge of the player stand station. The swing plane testing rail of the preferred solution cooperates with the player stand station, and can simulate standard swing planes in different stand slop surfaces, thereby implementing striking practices of different stand fields.
  • Preferably, a striking platform is further comprised. The striking platform comprises a lifting platform, a striking platform base, and a striking platform lifting mechanism for connecting the lifting platform and the base, and the lifting mechanism is used for enabling the lifting platform to have different heights. The striking platform of the preferred solution is used in cooperation with the player stand station and the swing plane testing rail, thereby facilitating the player to practice striking in various environments and fields. More preferably, the striking platform is provided with a laser sight, and when a beam emitted by the laser sight is parallel to the rail of the swing plane testing rail, it is helpful for the player to simulate the swing to strike a straight shot, and by rotating the player stand station, the surface of the swing plane testing rail is inclined leftward or rightward along the beam of the laser sight, so as to simulate club head trajectory tracks from inside out and from outside in, thereby being helpful for the player to practice a left curve ball or a right curve ball. Furthermore, a flow guide plate may be disposed at one side of the striking platform, so as to avoid the wrong swing action of the player that will cause the club to hit the side of the striking platform, and avoid damaging the club or causing a safety problem.
  • Preferably, a swing timing prompter configured to be placed on the player stand station is further comprised, and the swing timing prompter comprises a prompter base, a rebound plate, a rebound plate shaft, a prompter body, a first optical control sensor, and a first voicer. The prompter base is provided with a rebound plate fixing slot, and the rebound plate is fixed in the rebound plate fixing slot by using the rebound plate shaft in a manner that the rebound plate can swing from side to side. An elastic component is disposed between the rebound plate and the rebound plate fixing slot, and two ends of the elastic component respectively abut against on a lower surface of the rebound plate and a slot bottom of the rebound plate fixing slot. The prompter body is rotatably back and forth mounted on the rebound plate. The first optical control sensor is mounted at one side of the upper end of the prompter body opposite to the left crotch of the player, and the first optical control sensor is configured to control the first voicer to send an action instruction when a distance between the leg of the player and the first optical control sensor is less than a set distance, and the set distance is 4 to 12 cm. The swing timing prompter of the preferred solution can be configured to prompt timing of the striking of the player and correct gravity moving timing of the crotch and the leg, and help the player to correct a wrong action by sensing the optimal effect of striking by stress. The mounting and fixing manners of the rebound plate and the prompter base can prevent the swing timing prompter from being turned over due to a large step of the player, and the fixing manners of the prompter body and the rebound plate enables the swing timing prompter to adapt to height requirements of different players. Meanwhile, training of various striking actions may be implemented by cooperation of the swing plane testing rail.
  • Preferably, a swing central monitor is further comprised. The swing central monitor comprises a monitor box, an inclined rod, an angle wheel, and a lifting rod. A lower end of the lifting rod is fixed at an outer side of the striking station, a lower end of the inclined rod is rotatably fixed to an upper end of the lifting rod by the angle wheel, the monitor box is fixed at an upper end of the inclined rod, and the swing central monitor is provided with a second optical control sensor and a second voicer. A ray of the second optical control sensor is set at the left side of the head of the player, and the second optical control sensor is configured to control the second voicer to send a prompt when the head of the player contacts the ray. The swing central monitor further comprises two stretchable batons fixed on the monitor box, and the two stretchable batons are configured to limit a moving range of the head of the player during swinging. The swing central monitor of the preferred solution can intuitively limit the left-right moving range of the head of the player, and meanwhile can monitor, by the optical control sensor, the correct position of the head of the body of the player at the instant of striking, so as to provide a voice prompt on the wrong action of the player, thereby training the player to grasp the correct swinging and striking actions in cooperation with the swing plane testing rail.
  • Preferably, the cross-section of the polyformaldehyde bar rail is an hourglass shape having big upper and lower ends and a small middle portion. After the polyformaldehyde bar rail is clamped in the linear slot by the elastic force of the flexible material pad, a gap is reserved between the bottom of the polyformaldehyde bar rail and the bottom of the linear slot. In the preferred solution, after the polyformaldehyde bar rail is mounted in the linear slot, the polyformaldehyde bar rail is in a "suspended" state because of the gap reserved at the bottom of the linear slot, and the polyformaldehyde bar rail has a certain space downward and sideward, thereby increasing the sensitivity of pressure which is applied to the club by the testing rail, and further improving the buffer capability and pressure feedback capability of the testing rail.
