This study describes a method for the measurement of sports form. The data obtained can be used for quantitative sports-skill evaluation. Here, we focus on the golf-driver-swing form, which is difficult to measure and also difficult to improve. The measurement method presented was derived by kinematical human-body model analysis. The system was developed using three-dimensional (3-D) rate gyro sensors set at positions on the body that express the 3-D rotations and translations during the golf swing. The system accurately measures the golf-driver-swing form of golfers. Data obtained by this system can be related quantitatively to skill criteria as expressed in respected golf lesson textbooks. Quantitative data for criteria geared toward a novice golfer and a midlevel player are equally useful
