“We utilize GolfTEC’s Five Factors of the Proven Path to put together the building blocks of a swing piece by piece,” said Sean Joyce, centre manager at the new Ottawa GolfTEC, a certified personal coach and PGA of Canada member.

And that philosophy has resulted in GolfTEC achieving a 95% success rate with men and women golfers of all skill levels.

The latest in golf technology blends with the expertise of GolfTEC’s coaches to guide players as they head toward the realization of attaining their goals.

The company’s patented g-Swing technology shows the student real-time video and motion measurement at the same time. A colour-coding system points out how much change is needed in the various parts of the player’s swing.

When the objective data combines with the video analysis, it becomes a breeze for the player and coach to see precisely what changes will be needed to improve.

Instant replay is also a huge factor at GolfTEC.

The Button Box that is located beside the mats in the hitting bays controls the Video-Based practice system and allows players to control video from two angles simultaneously, in regular speed, slow motion or freeze frame.

The device even includes video drawing tools to add lines that make it a snap to check swing plane, club angle and body position. Instant Video Replay is available with any practice session and can be accessed conveniently by touching a button with a club right from the hitting mat.

When fitting players with clubs that match their swings, GolfTEC turns to Foresight launch monitors. They measure launch angle, spin rates, club speeds and more. The results are paired with GolfTEC’s SwingLabs database to match the ideal clubs for each golfer.

Here are GolfTEC’s Five Factors of the Proven Path
