Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • This invention relates to a golf lesson apparatus and server by using intrinsic location and user authentication. More specifically speaking, it relates to a golf lesson apparatus and server which authenticate users through the users' IDs and the IDs of the golf courses or driving ranges, the tee boxes and the golf clubs, record the video of the users' swing postures and analyze the users' swing videos, provide the users with the swing lesson video on real time and provide the users with systematic golf lesson which suits for the users' levels and conditions, and provide users with search and replay services for their swing videos and the various golf lesson videos transmitted from the golf lesson server via the wired or wireless networks.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • As with most other sports, golf requires correct swing that makes accurate and stable driving. The swing posture affects the stability, accuracy and distance of the ball. Therefore, learning stable swing posture is essential for the improvement of golf skill.
  • However, swing posture easily becomes distracted by the golfer's condition or insufficient practice time, leading to inaccurate hitting such as miss-shot, hook and slice.
  • Also, even though the golfer is accustomed to basic principles of swing posture, while it is relatively easier to analyze other's irrational swing posture, it is not easy to see his/her own posture to identify the cause of inaccurate motion, which leads to such motion getting into habit and loss of interest in golf. Therefore, it is recommended for golfers to identify one's own incorrect posture to restore correct posture and prevent inaccurate driving.
  • The golfers who practice swing postures in conventional driving rage check their own motions with the mirrors on the wall, camera, or camcorders. However, using camcorders is accompanied with a lot of inconveniences of installation, shooting, slow replay, and difficulty of viewing motions in 3D images.
  • Also, the advice of a coach or other people cannot avoid repeating trial and error in experience because the golfer cannot see his/her own swing posture. Therefore, it is necessary to easily monitor his/her own swing posture with golf lesson apparatus which can be shared by multiple golfers.
  • Although an invention which was disclosed by Korean Patent Registration No. 2002-66397 provides a method which helps to correct swing postures of golfers practicing at golf driving ranges via Internet. However, the method requires users to access the service provider's web site with terminals and obtain authentication with user IDs and passwords. Such service is only available in the places where there are computer terminals connected to Internet, but unavailable during the swing exercise in golf courses or driving ranges.
  • Therefore, since the user cannot see his/her own swing posture on the site, it leads to far unsatisfactory learning efficiency and there remains the demerit that the teaching cannot be conducted by taking into consideration analysis of the golfer's skill, level, and situation.
  • DISCLOSURE Technical Problem
  • In order to solve the problems described hereinabove, this invention aims to provide a golf lesson apparatus and server which authenticate users through the ID of golf course or golf driving range, the ID of tee box, the ID of golf club, and the ID of user, and shoot and record the users' swing video and analyze the users' swing video, and provide the users with the swing lesson video on real time and provide the users with systematic golf lesson which appropriates for the users' conditions and levels, and provide users with search and replay services for their swing and lesson video via the golf lesson apparatus or wired or wireless networks.
  • Technical Solution
  • In order to achieve the object as described above, this invention provides a golf lesson apparatus, which is linked with a golf lesson server, installed at teeing places of golf course or golf driving range to provide users with golf lesson services, which is characterized by being comprised of; the wireless communication part which communicate with the user's membership card or his/her golf club to authenticate the user or to receive the information on his/her golf club; the motion detection part which records or captures the user's swings and motions; the data storage part which stores the video of the user's swing posture transmitted from said the motion detection part, the golf lesson video and image data transmitted from said golf lesson server, and the IDs data of the golf course or golf driving range, and the tee box; a key input interface part through which the save command and analysis options for the user's swing video are entered; a display part which plays the user's swing video and the golf lesson video and displays the information on the golf course or golf driving range; a network interface part which connects and communicates with said golf lesson server via wired/wireless network; and a control part which provides users with said golf lesson services in link with said golf lesson server, authenticates users, records, replays and transmits users' swing postures, and receives and replays at least one or more of the lesson videos which is the analysis of said swing videos, common lesson videos, and the video of the swing of golf professionals.
  • In addition, another purpose of this invention is to provide a golf lesson service server which is linked with said golf lesson apparatus by using intrinsic location and user authentication and which is characterized by being comprised of: a software programs storage part which stores the software programs for said golf lesson service; a database which stores users' swing videos and lesson videos; a key input interface part which receives the control input of service operators; a display part which is comprised of multiple monitors and displays said users' swing video received from said golf lesson apparatus for service operators to monitor; a communication part which enables communication between said golf lesson apparatus and users' personal mobile communication terminals via wired or wireless network; and a server control part which runs said software programs stored in said software programs storage, authenticates users by receiving the users' IDs, the IDs of the golf course or golf driving range, and the ID of the tee box from said golf lesson apparatus, authenticates users via said personal mobile communication terminals, creates, stores and transmits said golf lesson videos after receiving users' swing video and analyzing them, monitors said teeing places of a golf course or golf driving range, and controls the data search from the stored in said golf lesson server database and said golf lesson apparatus.
  • ADVANTAGEOUS EFFECTS
  • As explained hereinabove, this invention is effective for golf users to enable simple and easy correction of golf swing postures by analysis on users' swing video using golf analysis tool or by professional's coaching on real-time basis, and also by watching the users' swing videos and golf lesson videos which are stored in the database of said golf lesson sever by convenient search function, through the access to the golf lesson server by simple authentication.
  • In addition, this invention can provide users with various lesson programs suitable for each user's skill level and environment, with systemized swing analysis videos and golf lesson videos, and with systematic administration of users and golf courses or golf driving ranges.
  • In addition, users can view their own swing posture videos by accessing to the server whenever and wherever, and preset the video which will be automatically displayed when a user enters a tee box for more convenient and faster lesson.
