Inspired by javelin star Yego, golfer Charania using YouTube to polish his swing

Windsor resident professional Rizwan Charania has been keeping track of his swing changes from his foreign based coach ahead of his 2019 KCB Karen Masters campaign.

Charania, a former Professional Golfers of Kenya Chairman, is using video technology to improve some aspects of his swing that should come in handy in the third edition of the Sunshine Tour sanctioned event.

“I’m constantly trying to improve on my swing and I realise it is closer to where I want it to be. I’m also working on my fitness which I believe will be of help during the Karen Masters,” said Charania.

Peter Tupling, who is based in the UK, has been imparting valuable experience to Charania with online video corrections on how to up his short and long game.

“We rarely meet but exchange ideas online. From here we work via video feed and he imparts lots of skills. I see him a couple of times a year, either I go there or he comes here. He has been my mentor for over 10 years and I’m very appreciative.”

Asked about his target in the Karen Masters, Charania, who won the last round of the Safari Tour, went on: “I just want  to play well. I’m not putting any pressure on myself but just to trust the changes and see how it holds up under pressure.”

Like the world-beating YouTube athlete Julius Yego, Charania believes online videos are taking his game to the next level.

“Yes, it’s been a very important aspect of my improvements as a teaching pro as well as a player. Go golf is a different golf IT venture where we have created a virtual membership for golfers to enjoy flexibility and choice. We have partnered with five clubs and offer great rated to play.

“I run the Go Golf with my brother. Go Golf ran a simulator setup at the Magical Kenya Open where onlookers and club members savored the rare opportunity to practice their range skills on a computerised system.

“The system shows the critical information from club speed to launch angles to spin rates. A great tool to fit clubs and also to understand your ball flights and distances with different clubs.

“In this day and age you cannot shy away from technology, instead embrace it and this is one of the tactics I’m using to bolster my game and my business option.”
