GolfTEC launches annual 'CRUSH-IT' promotion during August

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- GolfTEC - the global leader in golf improvement - announces its annual August "CRUSH-IT" promotion will commence Friday, August 1 at nearly 200 locations in the U.S. and Canada, providing special rates on the company's leading-edge golf instruction programs, including game plans and lesson packs.

Offered throughout the month, this outstanding opportunity allows golfers to receive up to 20% off GolfTEC's services that maximize on-course performance and enjoyment. Highly efficient and boasting a 95 percent success rate, GolfTEC lessons are taught one-on-one by Certified Personal Coaches in private, mostly indoor bays that utilize proprietary teaching technology.

"The GolfTEC business is built on making us all better golfers who enjoy the game more and play more often because of it," says Brent Stewart, Vice President of Marketing at GolfTEC. "Our 'August CRUSH-IT' sale provides a strong incentive for players of all ability levels to experience our highly productive learning programs and first-rate coaches."

Developing a comprehensive improvement plan for each student is the foundation of GolfTEC's philosophy. This is embodied by the GolfTEC Game Plan program, which includes a swing evaluation and series of lessons taught by a Certified Personal Coach, TECfit club fitting, video-based practice and mobile lessons. These plans come in several pricing options to fit all budgets and are the most effective way to build a solid, dependable swing.

GolfTEC's renowned coaching staff is comprised of experienced professionals, most of whom have taught thousands of lessons. Each goes through a rigorous multi-week certification at GolfTEC University to master the analysis of golf mechanics, the technology of the GolfTEC system and the most productive teaching techniques. Committed to strengthening the industry and hiring only the best staff, GolfTEC is the largest employer of PGA Professionals in the world.

Each of the company's locations boasts an array of state-of-the-art equipment and services specially designed to provide customers a totally unique experience. Among the technologies currently employed:

• g-SWING System - Patented software program displays real-time video with motion measurement, capturing body positions throughout the swing; coaches use the info to diagnose, communicate and measure the changes that will lead to improvement

• Foresight® launch monitor - Captures and displays performance data - ball speed, clubhead speed, launch angle, sidespin and backspin - that coaches use as part of TECfit club fitting or to illustrate changes in ball performance resulting from swing adjustments

• SwingLabs® database - Part of the TECfit club fitting process, results from the Foresight® launch monitors are cross-referenced through this extensive database to help select the ideal clubs for each student's swing

Outside the Improvement Center students can access their lessons and video - including coach's instructions and specific drills - through GolfTEC's online Player Performance Center. Those seeking to access the data remotely can use their computer or the new GolfTEC To Go smart phone app available on iTunes and the Google Play store.
