Edwin Watts Golf Academy’s coterie of club-wrangling instructors unveils hard-won golf wisdom during one-hour swing-analysis lessons. Throughout the lesson, golf gurus augment their considerable diagnostic powers with a host of technological refinements, including JC Video swing analysis, which records each swing and plays it back in a highly perceptive software program that dissects players’ swing mechanics, pinpoints problematic habits, and plumbs the deepest psychological yearnings of the 9-iron. Additionally, a special laser affixes itself to club heads to further deconstruct pendulous orb punishing, telepathically informing instructors about every movement of the student’s swing so they can make the necessary adjustments to cure mulligan makers. Pupils depart with a username and password, which grants them access to a database containing a video copy of their entire session, to use as a later reference or loop nonstop at upcoming dinner parties.

Edwin Watts Golf Academy

The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer’s good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.
