ZenoLink founder Chris Welch demonstrates a golf-specific
method for gaining core coordination.

Now, more than 15 years later, ZenoLink is dipping its toes into the mainstream. Its technology
also has served as the basis for the swing mechanics that have allowed Kim to become, when
healthy, one of the world’s most confident top
players. And few who know him will not be surprised anytime soon if Foley convinces Woods this
stuff can help him return to his No. 1 perch.
Welch, has been moving quietly in and around
golf’s inner circles for close to 20 years. Sources
also say he has, more recently, obtained new
backing, added financing and a fresh marketing
outlook. Schriber figures it’s just a matter of time
before Welch’s ideas go viral.
ZenoLink is, among other things, the latest
pure science application to show up, for public
consumption, on the golf scene. And it is accom-
panied by the same basic 3D principles that drove
millions of people into movie theaters this year to
see a film called “Avatar.”
The game’s old guard – the scolds and the pur-
ists, too – might be happy to know one of the beau-
ties of ZenoLink is this: It isn’t trying to replace
the art of teaching golf; it is trying to enhance it.
“A lot of it has to do with muscle learning and
being able to fire in a certain pattern,” says Foley.
“Obviously, mechanics and technique have to be
aligned so you’re not expending or wasting energy.”
For the record, neither Foley nor anyone else is get-
ting paid to endorse ZenoLink.
