With expert instruction from PGA pro and six-time Colorado Long Drive champion Paul Surniak, A.R.T. Golf Academy's custom instruction amps up the golf skills of beginning bogeys and seasoned birdies. The 90-minute assessment kicks off with a video evaluation of the client's swing technique, before a biomechanical evaluation with Dr. Mike Leahy, DC, who has worked with dozens of PGA Tour professionals. By meticulously examining each individual’s swing far removed from the prospect of sand-trap sunbathing, the team can tweak posture for more efficient and accurate ball-striking. To finish the session, a certified personal trainer runs clients through a series of fitness tests, identifying tips to transform key muscles into perfect club-wielding machines.
Each one-hour private lesson, taught by Surniak, begins with a video swing evaluation, measuring ball-smashing aptitude, to benchmark future progress and gather B-roll footage for prospective sci-fi films about rogue 9-irons. Surniak then coaches each golfer on the finer points of their long game, short game, and putting, focusing on everything from grip and stance to club selection. Students emerge ready to put their training into practice and with psyches fully equipped with Surniak's nuggets of wisdom about the game's mental and physical aspects.
