Golf instruction and advanced technology unite
Old Palm Golf Club takes golf seriously by providing members with everything they need to improve their games. Director of Instruction Mark Hackett is one of Golf Magazineâs Top 100 Teachers in America, and Director of Golf Bud Taylor is a PGA Certified Master Professional who supervises Old Palmâs member tournaments and teaching programs.
To complement their prodigious talents, they use the latest technology in Old Palmâs one-of-a-kind Golf Studio. For instance, there is a Trackman golf radar system in the studioâs hitting bay. The system clearly shows the trajectory of each golf shot in 3D, so the golfer and instructor can easily see how wellâor how poorlyâthe shot was struck.
Based on the resulting information, adjustments can be made to the golferâs swing, grip, alignment and even equipmentâall of which maximizes the golferâs performance.
âWe use Trackman technology to measure spin rate, launch angle, club head speed and other flight characteristics,â explains Taylor. âBy marrying golf instruction with technology, we can really improve our membersâ golf games.â
