Ping at Orlando
It is a brand fitting system, our advanced fitting system, that is just out this year.The interchangeable approach uses our standard heads and shafts. We have a thread system to allow us to interchange the shafts and heads so we have hundreds of combinations to fit you. We customize the clubs to you and will generate an order that will go to Ping to be built at the Ping facility. The order go back to you in 48 hours. The inflight software still requires the professional fitter that operates the system. It gives them the tools to visualize the fitting, validate it and then give a structure to step them through the fitting. The screen will show things in multiple ways .The static fitting information like hand size, length from wrist to ground, etc. is fed into the machine and it gives the colour code. The software analysis of this information when coupled with a Ping fitter is powerful. It generates a spec and order that is sent by Email to Ping. We have different length shafts and many combinations to offer you the best club.
Paul Nussbaum is the the son of the inventor of Monroe Solo Rider a company is based in Denver, Colorado. It is an up and coming business to serve the injured returning soldiers from Iraq. They can swing off the seat for full motion of a golf swing.We took the best of all
the models and our unit operates in a safe manner. People can feel like a normal golfer not on a wheel chair. The cost is in the $7500 rangeJim Estes of Disabled Golf. I started giving lessons to guys from Walter Reed and then we partnered with the PGA to give guys from Iraq or Afghan a golf experience. We have below knee amputees and up to the hip. The injuries of the people are horrendous. There are 33,000 injured US soldiers. Before they were dying in Vietnam and now they are living. I felt there is a lot of therapy in playing golf. I have seen some huge changes of the emotional well being of these guys by playing golf. Golf is an amazing fit for the injured soldiers as golfers have to be mentally fit and work on their fitness. There are
12,000 golf courses owned by the Department of Defense in the US which will have to have the solo rider available shortly.
John Mauls At Your Feet Virgina Beach, Virginia
I have been a golfer for 15 years. The mother of invention is necessity and this product is to remind you at the right moment the swing thought you need to have, when you are in the swing position. I wanted to keep the product as simple as possible. You can take a lesson from your pro who will give you 3 or 4 things to work on and you can go back, put them on your computer and download to your At Your Feet unit. You then put the unit on your foot with a magnet say
your left foot if your are right handed. While you are in the golf position you need a swing position. You tap your foot and the swing thought comes up. Up to 18 thoughts. A lot us have been in a golfing situation where you forget what you need to do. You don't have to rethink what the pro said, you have the message at your feet. You use it at the practice range or around the the office.We have several sources in America to make the product which will
sell for $139.95
