With players like Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods endorsing the Full Swing Golf Simulator, it is hard to understand why more players are not leaning toward this technology to assist their games. However, many first time users may struggle with the concept of learning an outdoor game in the confines of an indoor environment. They don’t blame anyone. they will be the first to say that golf is a game that is best learnt on the course itself. Unfortunately, offering lessons on the 6th fairway with two groups waiting on the tee box behind is not exactly the best idea. They have decided to use the next best thing…
Of course, they would love to hit golf balls off pristine turf like they do on the professional tours to get their practice in, but few ranges offer this service. In fact 99% of driving ranges in KL are using hitting mats just like they do at Play@CityGolf.
However, what they do offer is a golf simulator with infrared beams tracking every shot that is hit into their high impact HD screens. The launch angle is measured against the speed of the golf ball. Along with the exact angle of deviation left or right of the target line, a ball flight is reproduced on the screen. The technology is accurate to 97%, and has proven itself to be good enough for Hank Haney to introduce the Full Swing Golf Simulator into his teaching academies.
A driving range ball feels different to real balls because driving range balls are “built to last”. The average driving range ball is hit more times than a golf ball should really be hit, and over time the impact will eventually wear out the original shape, which will eventually give you some drastic mis-fires! Range balls also have the habit of being inconsistent in feel due to their compression. Some shots will feel “hard” even when you know you’ve hit it OK. If you’re not really feeling your shots the way you’ve really hit them, this is a poor reflection on the outcome of your swing.
They have the ability to move between the driving range and the golf course within a couple of seconds. This is an invaluable teaching tool, as students will be able to work on their swings on identical replicas of a choice of international golf courses. This is the most efficient way of getting a lesson on actually playing the game of golf under the watchful eye of a seasoned professional. Course management is one of the most overlooked aspects of the game of golf. Let them help.
Their professional uses advanced video analysis to help you to really understand your golf swing. The key to swinging better is to know what you are looking for, and this is where their professionals will ease your mind on all of those burning questions that you have had about your golf swing. Once you have an understanding, it is easy to set some goals and start improving.
In fact, they have the fastest rate of learning in junior and beginner golfers as they are able to get them into a golf course environment faster than what is achievable outdoors. Beginners can be playing on the course (and actually have an idea of what PAR is) within three short lessons.
