Reason's Golf Academy's experienced instructors collaborate with electronic simulators to instill golfers of all experience levels with the fundamentals required to lower scores and lengthen drives. Reason's indoor, full-swing clinics help golfers to develop a consistent swing. With a 3-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, each three-hour clinic grants students individual feedback and guidance for preshot routines, alignment, swing length, and grip. On the digital doglegs of the simulated course, a swing analyzer also produces an array of data that informs corrections for shanks, slices, and confounding ellipses.
In each advanced swing clinic, professional instructor and Academy founder Mark Reason provides detailed instruction in a one-on-one environment. Mark wields his 30 years of pin-seeking experience to help each student to develop the muscle memory involved in a proper swing. His "ferris wheel" swing-axis method not only helps to correct instinctual golfing flaws, but also prevents forecaddies from mistaking poor swings for semaphore instructions to lose the ball in the bushes.
Reason's Golf Academy
Over his 30-year tenure teaching golf, founder Mark Reason has established Reason's Golf Academy locations in Michigan and Florida to spread the wisdom of his Ferris-wheel-swing technique. This coaching philosophy—designed to build swings that travel on a controlled, vertical axis rather than in a less-dependable merry-go-round motion—serves as the unifying force in all of the academy's instructional programs and as the building block for the development of a consistent, correctable, and windshield-friendly swing. Instructors use golf-simulator and swing-analyzer technology to scrutinize imperfect motions and weighted, molded-grip clubs and other training aids to guide clients toward proper technique. To further optimize patrons' pin-hunting prowess, the Academy offers club-fitting services, which pair clients with the clubs or modified pool noodles that best fit their unique swing profile.
