Everyone is unique. You and your golf swing are no exception. Isn't it time that we celebrated that? Here, we believe that practice only makes perfect when the practice itself is a perfect fit for you. That's why we invented CTRL - a bio-kinetic sleeve that trains every golfer differently. It's time for a trainer as unique as you.
Train it yourself or with a coach. Simply slide on the sleeve, pop in the sensors, and start taking swings. After every swing all you have to do is let CTRL know how the ball flew. In as few as 30 swings we'll know exactly what your perfect swing looks like. So you can practice your perfect.
The Most Important Part of Any Good Swing.
With CTRL, find and feel your perfect rhythm everytime.

Fundamental to Shot Shape

CTRL began in 2017 with a couple of sketches on a napkin at lunch between Ian and Alex. They sketched out a prototype for some sort of device that could accurately measure the movement of a human arm in real-time and set out to make it as a passion project. When the project was mentioned to professor Rodney Boehm at Texas A&M University, he saw the true potential of the prototype and offered enrollment in an entrepreneurship incubator focused on taking prototypes and finding their proper place in the market.
A team of the brightest and most driven students the university had to offer was formed and the journey to find the home of our body tracking technology began. After close to 500 customer interviews, the inaugural Aggie Pitch competition, and a feature at the Aggie Engineering Showcase, CTRL was ready to serve its purpose, perfect the art of sports training through superior tools that use biometrics to learn how an athlete’s body uniquely performs and create a personalized training experience.
