What You'll Get
Today's side deal gets golfers a two-hour custom club fitting fit for the pros, including custom club recommendations and a CD of your 3-D golf swing, from TaylorMade Performance Labs in Olympia Fields for $200 (a $400 value). In addition, you'll receive a $50 credit toward any club purchase.
Using the same motion-capture technology used in Lord of the Rings, Polar Express, and Avatar 2: Two Avatars, TaylorMade Performance Labs' custom club fitting lets you closely examine your golf swing, as well as see what Gollum would look like if he had your golf swing. After reflective markers are placed on strategic points of your body and on the shaft and head of your fitting club, six separate, high-speed, synchronized cameras will capture the motion of the reflectors as you swing drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, and putters—producing a dynamic 3-D image of your swing that can be viewed from any angle.
A TaylorMade PGA-qualified custom-fitting specialist will then sit down with you to discuss and analyze the technical data regarding 26 aspects of your swing, including center of gravity, body line, ball trajectory, backspin, clubhead speed, shaft deflection, face angle, and more. Your characteristics are then compared to TaylorMade's database of more than 500,000 golf swings from golfers of every skill level. Using sophisticated algorithms, TaylorMade's supercomputer will recommend the club customization that's best suited to your unique swing. Finally, you'll get to validate the recommendation by trying out the recommended custom club in the adjacent practice facility. The whole process takes about two hours, and you'll go home with a CD copy of your 3-D swing, a print-out of the swing summary, and club recommendations, including length, lie, loft, shaft, and grip. If you choose to purchase any customized clubs, they can be built within 48 hours and shipped directly to your home.
