Vaughan, Ontario (PRWEB) May 28, 2011
Interactive Sports Technologies™ the makers of High Definition Golf™ simulators announces that Jim McLean Golf Schools has selected HD Golf™ for its Ft. Worth, Texas training facility. The simulator and teaching accessories provide a completely integrated professional golf instruction studio. The system will be used for instruction, practice, club fitting and recreational play.
“This is the most complete teaching solution I have ever seen. While I am teaching, the technology built into the HD Golf™ simulator measures and analyzes everything that moves, including the ball, the club and the golfer, with a high degree of accuracy,” says Justin Poynter, Director of Instruction and General Manager of the Jim McLean Golf Center-Texas. “The integrated tools for video swing analysis, weight transfer/balance and swing dynamics are easy-to-use, work together seamlessly and provide me with a variety of simultaneous display options and performance reports. Everything is so well organized in the simulator and I don’t have to play around with multiple systems, which allows me to spend more time focusing on my student. And, at end of a lesson, I can upload all the shot data and swing information to his Internet based ‘Locker’ so that it can be reviewed and monitored for progress over time.”
Using computer vision technology, pioneered by High Definition Golf™ for the golf simulator industry, the system makes more measurements, more accurately than any other system currently on the market. These include distance (carry & roll), ball speed, club-head speed, efficiency (“smash factor”), launch angle, swing-path (outside/in, inside/out), club head angle at impact, ball position (re: club-head at impact) and ball spin and spin axis. In the professional golf instruction studio configuration, the simulator combines a suite of professional-grade tools for detailed shot analysis, video swing analysis, weight transfer/balance and swing dynamics along with software for custom club fitting and club comparison.
“The Jim McLean Schools have a reputation of being some of the finest facilities in the world for golf instruction. Accordingly, they demand and employ only the latest and best teaching tools and technology for their students. The HD Golf™ simulator, with its suite of diagnostic tools provide many benefits to the instructors and students, including detailed shot analysis after every swing, so that students can make adjustments and improve more quickly. In addition, realistic golf courses allow students to develop course management skills and provide a teaching environment that will engage students and make them excited about training. Our simulators are also very easy-to-use and provide a flexible platform which can be customized to suit the needs of the instructor and the facility,” says Todd Richardson, President and CEO.
High Definition Golf™ is an ideal solution for students just learning the game, or for seasoned players trying to correct his swing or PGA Tour pros trying out new equipment. High Definition Golf™ puts the power of information at the instructors fingertips.
