Two-time Masters champion, Bernhard Langer helped to launch The Mercedes-Benz Performance Center, a free mobile golf tour powered by The PGA of America, today in Augusta. An innovative golf teaching initiative, The Mercedes-Benz Performance Center offers unique golf instruction to golfers of all skill levels.
Two Mercedes Sprinter vans serve as an anchor for the overall performance center along with PGA Professionals and high-tech golf teaching technologies for improving important game skills from putting to swing mechanics. The following is included within the Mercedes-Benz Golf Performance Center:
GolfTEC's patented g-SWING and g-PUTT systems use digital video, motion measurement and biofeedback.
The digital video compares swing data to GolfTEC's proprietary database of more than 150 Tour Professional golf swings. Digital video provides reinforcement for the golfer and PGA Professional while working in tandem with the biofeedback tones to alert the golfer to a positive or negative motion.
The P3ProSwing™ CLARET is an advanced golf simulator with dynamic swing analysis. The high tech sensing platform and software captures the information from 65 optical elements and creates a visual representation of the swing data.
The simulator also comes with a skills competition package including Hole-in-One, Long Drive and Closest-to-the-Pin software with an Integrated Leader Board to keep track of top scores.
