I was recently  over at Turtle Cove Golf Center in the Bronx visiting my old friend Rick Neilsen. While I was there Rick was kind enough to demonstrate this new software he had acquired, the Swinguru Pro.
 According to the manufacturer.

SOFTWARE DESCRIPTION Swinguru Pro is a wireless and markerless 3D golf swing analysis and training system for teaching professionals who want to boost their lessons by embracing new technologies. It combines video and real-time 3D full body tracking and visualization with simple and intuitive biofeedback.

Here's the video:
