New GOLFTEC Training Center in Durham, North Carolina

Englewood, CO, Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (DURHAM, NC) – GOLFTEC – the world leader in golf lessons and premium club fittings, continues to expand its nationwide footprint announcing the opening of a state-of-the-art instruction and club fitting center in Durham, North Carolina at 3604 Witherspoon Blvd. Suite 101, Durham, NC 27707.
The new 3,300-square-foot facility features five golf simulator bays, powered by Foresight Sports, for instruction and practice. Each bay is equipped with OptiMotion, a groundbreaking motion tracking innovation that sets a new standard for how golf swings are measured and the way golf instruction is delivered. To round out the golfer’s complete game, the facility includes an indoor putting green and lessons enhanced by TECPUTT, a motion technology that analyzes face angle, loft and path direction of putting strokes.
GOLFTEC Durham also features the company’s enhanced custom club fitting program. The TOUR-like fitting experience combines swing characteristics with ball flight data to help identify optimal golf equipment for each student. An array of clubhead/shaft options are available to perfectly match players of any skill level with the clubs that best meet their needs. Nearly 75% of all golfers who went through a club fitting in 2020 gained an average of 25 yards over their previous equipment.
The new center will be staffed by a veteran team of highly-trained and certified coaches, led by Director of Instruction and Center Manager Eric Jordan, who will oversee operations. Jordan, a PGA Member specializing in teaching and coaching, graduated from the Golf Academy of America and has taught over 11,000 golf lessons with GOLFTEC. He is able to understand the unique needs from each student, then help them maximize their potential due to his extensive teaching experience. GOLFTEC Coaches find the lesson plan best suited for each student’s unique needs, helping them drop an average of seven strokes from their scores.
