Teaching: Waratah Golf Club Proshop is excited to be able to offer its member's access to the new FlightScope © golf swing analysis technology. This new equipment utilies radar waves to break down the intricate individual features of the golf swing. This exposes the teaching professional to all kinds of information that would have previously been difficult and problematic to decipher.
The FlightScope system analyses data from certain swing characteristics such as club head speed, spin rate, launch angle and face angle etc. and produces a digitial image of the player's ball flight. This infomation can then be interpreted by your instructor and used to illustrate and diagnose in an immediate way any issues with your swing. The FlightScope image gallery shows various aspects of the FlightScope system. The images will scroll every 3.5 seconds as long as your mouse is not hovering over an image. You can also use the buttons at the bottom of the gallery to scroll through the images.
As well as being a great training aid the system is also a very useful club fitting tool with highly accurate comparisons being able to be made between different clubs of varying specifications. Using the FlightScope system helps enable your professional to find the best possible equipment to best suit your individual needs. Note: private lessons from Scot Davis are $60.00 for 1/2 hour sessions or from Geoff McCormack at $50.00 for 1/2 hour sessions.
Clinics: There has been a lot of interest in the beginner junior program and the proshop would like to remind its members that the clinics will be running every Tuesday at 4pm for cadets and every Wednesday at 4pm for beginners. Note to juniors to keep an eye out for the school holiday program that will run over the Christmas break.
Adult beginner clinics are in a state of limbo at the moment. It is the intention of the proshop to start both ladies and and mens beginner clinics towards the middle or end of October. Check with the proshop staff closer to this date for conformation and please register your interest in these clinics with Geoff at the proshop.
