GolfTEC and iClub(TM) Announce Strategic Partnership, Bringing State-of-the- Art Wireless Motion Capture to Golfers Across the Country

GolfTEC (, home of America's #1 Golf Lesson and iClub(TM) (, 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 golf."

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.
