$99 for Two Hours of Practice in TaylorMade Performance Lab ($300 Value)
Upon entry into the TaylorMade Performance Lab, golfers slip into a motion-sensor vest and attach sensors to their extremities, which precisely capture intricate movements of their swing throughout the session. Players can then watch from every conceivable angle as their swing is replicated by a digital doppelganger that breaks down club head speed, launch angle, and spin rate. The data gathered is then used to reveal ineffective swing habits and calculate the type of clubs, club shaft, and wiffle-ball bat players should use to achieve optimal results on the course.
Robin Nigro Golf Academy
Dynamic golf duo Robin and Mark Nigro help golfers develop optimal swings at Robin Nigro Golf Academy's full driving range, pro shop, and academy. The pair first joined forces when Mark began teaching golf to Robin, then 23, who thrived under Mark's deft training and, in two short years, ascended the ranks from late-starting beginner to a competitor on the Futures Mini Tour. Recognizing their undeniable chemistry, the two joined forces and now foster successful golf skills with lessons tailored to golfers of all stripes, often enlisting technological teaching aids to enhance their swing diagnoses and placate the club's supercomputer overlord.
Those looking for solo practice sessions can take to the outdoor driving range, where clubbers launch balls off of astroturf hitting mats out into a zoysia-grass valley peppered with multiple target areas. With covered, heated hitting bays, the range lets pin hunters work on their power draw or high fade while safely protected from rainstorms or predatory hot air balloons.
