It seems like golf swing analysis is an industry unto itself with more contraptions available for improving your swing than there are iPhone cases on the CES show floor. But the PocketPro is an incredibly compact alternative that works in conjunction with an iPhone app to provide detailed analysis of your swing, including speed, tempo and the angle at which the club face hits the ball.

All you need to do is attach a small nylon clip to your club, just below the grip, that has a 3-axis digital gyroscope and accelerometer sensors built-in for measuring acceleration and rotation. After a round of golf you transfer the data for all of your swings to your iPhone via Bluetooth, and the PocketPro app recreates the motions using 3D characters so you can see how it looked from a third-person perspective. Now it seems that determining what exactly might be wrong with your swing is up to your own analysis, but the hardware and software seem to provide more data than any golfer could ever need. Coming soon with pricing TBA.
