home of America's #1 Golf Lesson and iClub(TM) (http://www.iclub.net/),
the leader in wireless motion capture announced today a strategic
partnership that will incorporate iClub(TM) technologies into GolfTEC's
nation-wide learning centers.
"We chose the iClub(TM) system, because it is simply better
than anything else out there. It is clear that this group from MIT
is the leader in the field of wireless motion capture," said Joe
Assell, CEO and founder of GolfTEC.
"GolfTEC has always been at the leading edge of technology," said
Satayan Mahajan, CEO of iClub(TM). "The integration of iClub(TM)
will maintain their position among the most advanced technology
centers in the world. Their staff of PGA Teaching Professionals
drives the instruction market with innovative fact-based instruction
and GolfTEC continues to dominate as experts in the business of
The partnership is the culmination of two years of research and
development by both companies and includes integration of the iClub(TM)
System with GolfTEC's SEVAPro.
Starting next month, GolfTEC plans to integrate the Body Motion
System(TM), a lightweight vest with embedded sensors that measures
power gains and losses during a swing and the iClub(TM), a tiny
sensor that attaches to the end of any golf club and measures motion
during a swing, with a full rollout expected by the end of 2005.
Data from both devices is sent wirelessly to a personal computer
where artificial intelligence converts the information to a 3-D
view of the person and club in motion and provides personalized
feedback. These systems will be used along with GolfTEC's patented
SEVA system to provide players with high-end, high-tech golf instruction
at dozens of GolfTEC learning centers located across the country.
GolfTEC is revolutionizing golf instruction. Since its inception
in 1995, GolfTEC has developed into a golf instruction powerhouse
with over 300,000 lessons given across the country, more than any
other golf instruction company. GolfTEC's patented SEVA system allows
for fact-based instruction by integrating video, 3-D motion analysis,
impact analysis and biofeedback technology. 100% of GolfTEC's over
100 golf instructors are PGA Teaching Professionals, offering the
perfect blend of expertise and technology to provide the best possible
instruction. Expected to double in size in 2005, GolfTEC currently
has 27 learning centers open from coast to coast including 15 located
The iClub(TM) system includes a suite of golf instructional products
proven to help a golfer dramatically improve performance. Created
