My experience with the Golftec swing eval.So I decided to take advantage of the $25 30 min swing evaluation promotion at Golftec today. I hadn't seen my swing on video since last summer so I was pretty excited.
I reserved my appointment online through their website. After I clicked 'reserve' the website told me I'd receive an email confirmation, which I never received. My eval. was at 2pm, so I started calling the Golftec location I was going to at around noon to confirm that I was in their system. No one picked up. I left a message on their voicemail, but no one called me back. I just showed up at 2, only to find two Golftec employees sitting around next to the phone. Why didnt they pick up?
The website made it seem as though they were booked up and I took the only remaining spot. However, I realized I was the only one there. I got there promptly at 2, but I started at 2:30.
The "instructor" asked me some basic questions about my game and proceeded to strap me in. I took a couple warm up swings and then he proceeded to tape me. After one swing, he asked me to come over and look at the screen with him.
"As you can see, you are swaying a little bit and you look like you release a little early. Any questions? Try to keep your lower body a bit more quiet."
I hit a few more balls. Then he went into his sales pitch. About how he can't properly evaluate my swing in 30 min. That improving your swing is a process that takes time and dedication. That there are many flaws that he feels he can improve. And that there instructions packages are competitive.
3 month. 10 30 min lessons. Around $1200.
Basically he looked at one swing, stated to me the most obvious things on the screen, compared my swing to Stuart Appleby, and then gave me a lengthy sales pitch. I felt like I was on a timeshare "marketing" vacation.
What a waste of time! I'm sure there are those of you out there that have had good experiences with Golftec...but not me. I'll take a camcorder and swing academy over these guys any day...
sorry bout my ramble..I knew I should've just went out to the field today instead...
and anyone know the reasoning for them not letting me keep a copy of my swing?
