Abstract: This study is to provide fundamental resources to develop scientific golf swing method by analysing golf shot change by swing patterns for three different body types. Swing analysis was performed by using FlightScope® golf shot analysing device on three different body types with proper swing methods. Driving distance, driving direction, and head speed were analysed in this way. The result showed a correlation between the groups and swing patterns in terms of driving distance, as well as positive relation between the groups and swing patterns. In terms of driving direction and head speed, there was correlation between the groups, swing patterns and the difference was shown between swing patterns. Therefore, it was proved that different swing patterns need to be applied for each body type. Further study needs to be conducted using FlightScope® for scientific assessment. For the enhanced interoperability between sports science and IT technology, convergence education system models should be also continuously developed.
