V1 Catches Up with Lindy at the Meijer LPGA Classic
LPGA star Lindy Duncan, like most top line professionals, started golfing at a young age. As she grew up, Lindy and her father realized that she was blessed with natural golfing gifts. At about this time, Lindy started to dedicate more time to the game, which lead her to setting up a studio inside their home where she could hit balls into a net and study her swing on V1 Pro HD desktop software.
“I was hitting iron shots starting when I was 11 or 12, we got V1 because we wanted to video my swing. We thought it was really important to see the plane of the swing. To be honest I was looking at my swing daily right at my house, which was a huge advantage.”
Lindy quickly excelled, capturing the 1A Florida high school state individual title her senior year and earning a spot on the Duke Women’s Golf Team where she was a four-time first team All-American with six wins. Lindy earned her Tour card by finishing tied for 15th at the LPGA Qualifying Tournament in 2015.
Lindy is currently 22nd in the 2018 LPGA money list (Race to CME Globe) and poised for a breakout victory. From hitting balls and using V1 at her childhood home, to working on her swing at the LPGA’s biggest events, Lindy’s use of V1 remains the same.
“I typically use V1 to draw a line up the shaft from the back angle to see the plane, and we also draw a circle around my head to keep it stable. It has been remarkably helpful to my improvement for the last 15 years.”
Over the years, V1 has amassed a large database of Professional model swings that users can study and compare their own swings against. Lindy’s swing will now be available as a V1 Model and she was surprised when she heard the news, “That would be crazy, you are blowing my mind. I’ve got to make sure that it is a perfect one then.”
Lindy tees it up this week at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the second major of the season.
