$119 for Two 60-Minute TrackMan Golf-Swing Analysis Sessions ($258 Value)
Golf lessons begin with a goal setting discussion with a Class A PGA of Canada pro before golfers swing in a studio as TrackMan technology takes statistical measurements of each swing. By the end of their allotted time, players will have a comprehensive assessment of their swing performance, as well as a super slow-motion video to help self-critique. The lessons can be redeemed by one golfer or split between two.
A Class A member of the Professional Golfers Association of Canada since 1995, Bill Dreger takes a relaxed, conversational approach while helping others improve their golf game. Low-stress lessons incorporate the TrackMan launch monitor system, a computerized program that uses Doppler radar to measure 21 dimensions of the swing, including club speed, swing plane, launch angle, backspin, and post-swing pirouette. In addition to providing a wealth of data, the system also captures video footage of the swing, helping golfers to recognize and breakdown swing imbalances.
nonstopGOLF also offers the TrackMan Combine, a 60-shot standardized test that identifies golfers' strengths and weaknesses. By using Doppler radar to measure shots' distances and scoring them from 1 to 100, golfers receive an individualized report highlighting best and worst shots, as well as recommendations for practice tactics, equipment adjustments, and on-course strategies. With no mulligans and each shot scored, the TrackMan Combine can heighten accountability and self-competition or the package can be split between two people to for head-to-head competition.
