Edwin Watts Golf Academy’s certified instructors remedy the faulty golfing techniques of players ages 6 and up during one-on-one swing evaluations that pinpoint the root of wayward slices, pulls, and hooks. The 60-minute session corrects off-plane strokes with the JC Video swing-analysis system, which digitally records the student’s swinging motion with a special laser attached to the end of the club. The resulting video shows participants errors in their follow-through, which may include unbalanced setup, loose grip, and the failure to let go of the club as it sails into a water hazard. Immediate feedback from the instructors and online access to the video helps golfers stay on a consistent plane, straightening out their swings and curtailing stroke inefficiencies.
Golfers who would rather overcome obstacles in their short game can enlist in the 30-minute putting evaluation, which measures strokes across eight critical parameters using the Tomi system’s infrared transmitter. The small device corrects errant strokes by recalibrating tempo and path and realigning the club’s head and shaft at multiple points of the shot, including impact with the ball and caddies playing defense. Similar to the golf-swing students, all putters depart with access to digital recordings of their lessons.
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.
