Technology can improve your golf game



GolfTec training system.

With this surge of summer weather golfaholics are out. What better time to explore a proven avenue to improve your golf driving performance then to visit a local facility that uses the latest technology. GolfTEC has two locations in Lincoln Park, GolfTEC Halsted Row at 2847 N. Halsted and GolfTEC Lincoln Park, inside Golfsmith at 2782 N. Clybourn Ave.

The beginner or experienced golfer begins his improvement path with a swing analysis using computer technology. Practice bays have digital video cameras positioned behind and to the side of the golfer. The motion of where the body is throughout the swing is captured and then compared to the same body positions during swings of golf tour professionals.  Swing planes are compared. To enhance learning time, an online biofeedback technique is used.

Tracked movements are used to develop a personal repeatable swing path.  When practicing, beeps alert the golfer when his swing plane is off.  All lessons are recorded and can be seen on any computer via the internet.  Once the participant logs into his account, he can see his swing taped from his lessons and practice anywhere.


Robert Gamble, Teaching and Coacing PGA member, stands by the GolfTec Wall of Fame.

Both franchised facilities are locally owned. Operated by PGA (Professional Golf Association) teaching and coaching professionals, they are open year round to improve one's game in three areas - physical conditioning, equipment fitting, and swing analysis via computer technology. Each has fully equipped practice bays and a large putting green with various hole locations, uphill, right to left paths, etc.

Sensors are hooked to both the body and the putter to determine where one's faults lie.  Numerous training aids, such as impact bags and balance disks, are available for both in-house use or purchase. These aids fix the full swing, improve the short game, or tame the putting stroke.

A nice touch is their Wall of Fame. Engraved golf balls honor members who have hit a hole-in-one, won a tournament or display a  career lowest score.  Re you ready for golfing season?
