Vaughan Mason

Inventor and owner of the BJM Putter Grips Company LTD and Holding system.
During my time writing the golf program for myself and for iTrainer and with the experience I gained from the Applied functional Science course it dawned on me that the way we hold the PUTTER may not be the most efficient. I spent a number of months re-writing the HOLDING system for putting which is totally unique and not seen before.
This holding system was the influence for the way I designed the new putting grip. We are now in full production and looking to expand the concept worldwide

Certified NG360 Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute
- In 2013 I had the pleasure of meeting Gary Gray and David Tiberio from the Gray institute in the USA, who are the leaders in Golf Swing biomechanics. Over the last 30 years of my golf experience I have written my own golf program for tuition of our club golfers and for the benefit of education for budding professionals, at this stage I was invited to go through the NG360 Applied Functional Course which was a great experience and certainly worth while to help understand golf swing biomechanics better.
2013 - Present
Commissioned to write the interactive coaching programs for iTrainer Golf
In early 2013 I was lucky enough to meet the inventor of the iTrainer mini electronic swing analysis device and was invited to work with the company writing the instructional program to help improve users golfing experience. I am still involved with iTrainer to this day and still have a lot to do with building the coaching system for iTrainer
