Gleneagles Country Club Swings into 2012 With Opening of TaylorMade Performance Lab
DALLAS, Jan. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Gleneagles Country Club, a member of the ClubCorp family of clubs, announces the opening of the newest TaylorMade Performance Lab, one of only four “flagship” locations across the country to provide golfers of all ages and abilities a state-of-the-art fitting experience that uses 3D motion capture technology, which is then analyzed by a full-time certified TaylorMade Clubfitting Professional.
The two-hour fitting experience, which features TaylorMade’s MAT-T System, uses reflective markers positioned on strategic points of the body, as well as on the grip, shaft and head of the specially designed MAT-T club, to do a full swing analysis of the golfer and club. The 3D swing image and information help the TaylorMade Clubfitting Professional recommend drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, and putters to match each golfer’s swing and needs. Golfers receive a copy of the 3D swing image, swing information and recommendations to keep or share with a golf instructor.
“We are very excited about having the TaylorMade Performance Lab on the premises of the club,” said Brent Halvorson, Director of Golf at Gleneagles. “This is a great benefit for the members at Gleneagles as well as members of clubs in the ClubCorp family, and will be a one-of-a-kind attraction for all golfers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, allowing us to showcase Gleneagles – including the recently enhanced driving range and new short-game practice facilities – to the local community.”
Members of clubs in the ClubCorp family receive a preferred rate of $250 for a fitting session, and the cost for non-members is $400. For more information or to schedule a fitting appointment, call 972.665.8312.
