GolfTEC, the world leader in golf improvement, captured 1,806 golf swings and gave 1,155 onsite lessons during the U.S. Open this week, courtesy of American Express. This is the fourth year GolfTEC has teamed up with American Express and the program was completely free to golf fans who visited the American Express Championship Experience.
“We’ve delivered proven results during more than 2.8 million lessons over a 15 year period and are the only golf company equipped to offer more than opinions during on site events,” said Steve Bauerle, GolfTEC VP of Business Development. “The short lessons given by our Certified Personal Coaches are only a glimpse of our technology and golfers saw what it’s like on our Proven Path.”
When an American Express card member visited the American Express Championship Experience, they received a 10-minute golf lesson from a GolfTEC Certified Personal Coach. Non-card members could still benefit by having their swing captured on video and then reviewed by Coaches throughout the country.
All of the players can view their lessons on an American Express customized online portal at www.GolfTEC.com/AmericanExpress, available 24/7 and in the privacy of their own home.
GolfTEC captured the golf swings of 150 PGA and LPGA Tour Pros, which are used in a side-by-side comparison to the amateur golfer’s swing during the mini-lessons at the event. The data from the Tour Pros was used to create benchmarks that GolfTEC uses to develop a repeatable swing based on fundamental golf technique.
“Bringing our fact-based system to the U.S. Open and letting fans compare their swing on video to the golfers who are playing at Congressional was unlike anything else that happened last week,” said Bauerle. “Grassroots events allow golfers of all ability levels to hear what Coaches think they should work on in their swing. This is only the beginning of what they could experience with GolfTEC.”
