His self-described method of instruction includes the use of high-speed video cameras which ensures precise feedback that is both accurate and consistent from one swing to the next. With the help of this technology, Hamilton’s expertise allows him to improve each player’s ball position, pivot, plane, and hand action, resulting in a swing that is easily repeatable, especially under pressure.
