YOUR GOLF LESSON – A PHILOSOPHY
Keeping your lesson simple, understandable and memorable is key to your successful development. We do this by using the folowing principles:
Simple - Our technology allows us to record your technique with special emphasis on how balanced your movement is throughout your swing. We would then discuss what needs to be improved and why this will help develop more consistency, distance and control.
Understandable - We use a lot of visual images so you can see what what you are doing and how much you have improved. The information is delivered in a logical and patient manner so there is no confusion on the way forward.
Memorable - It is vital that you remember the content of the lesson. That is why we have invested in the V1 Coaching Academy software because it allows us to email you a video summary of the lesson. This can also be sent to your phone, so the next time you go to work on your game, your lesson with Pestana Golf Integrated Academy, will be at your fingertips.
When all of the above has been achieved, it is then possible to progress your game.

Long Game: Swing analysis using V1 video technology
At Pestana Golf Integrated Academy every lesson will have a V1 recording and account set up for the player, so you will be able to see the immediate improvement. The account gives the player to review the videos taken whenever needed. The opportunity of year long, continual remote development is also available to our Clients.
Balance and Power: SAM BalanceLab
The golf swing starts from the ground up. It is critical that your connection with the ground is solid and your movement is balanced. By achieving a balanced golf swing, each player will very quickly increase their power base and see the ball go further and straighter.
Long Game: FlightScope X2
Within 10 shots, using the FlightScope Doppler radar technology, we will have all the critical data to determine your average in the following areas:
All of this valuable information is recorded to reference improvement whilst being used to recommend correct equipment.
Short Game: SAM PuttLab
Our system gives you individual feedback on your putting strokes. The analysis reveals even the smallest details of your movements and allows us to develop improvements and training strategies.
Within minutes we will have 28 of the most important elements of your putting stroke analysed, and after a few minutes more we will have you accurately working on the most important area of the game.
