Aimpoint arrives in Australia
WHEN it comes to putting, coaches and students inevitably gravitate towards the technical aspect for improvement. AimPoint Technologies focuses on the science of predictive putt technology, green reading instruction, and player performance analysis.
Recently, CEO and founder of AimPoint Mark Sweeney and Senior Instructor Jamie Donaldson made the trip down under where a series of clinics were hosted at Albert Park Driving Range and Sandhurst Golf Club. Steven Giuliano, an Instructor at Albert Park Golf Academy, flew to Orlando early this year to complete Phase 1 of the AimPoint Certification and is now recognized as the only AimPoint certified instructor in Australia. Stuart Leong of the PGA completed Phase 1 in Melbourne as did Queensland’s David Nable, Grant Field and Chris Gibson. They will soon complete Phase 2 of their certification in 2012.
Speaking on SEN radio during their visit, Mark Sweeney was asked what students would take away from these clinics. The answer: “predictability; students leave with the understanding that there’s a fixed set of rules for how the ball behaves, and if they understand those rules then it’s actually a simple process for reading the greens”.
The green reading techniques teach students not to rely just on their eyes for judging slope, but to tap into their other sense of feel. Charts are handed out halfway through the clinics and students are able to predict accurately where to aim on any surface, any speed and any slope anywhere in the world.
