Foresight is the Butch choice

Leading golf coach, Butch Harmon, whose former pupils include Greg Norman, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, is the latest big name to choose the Foresight Sports Game Changer 2 (GC2), stating the technology is “the best we’ve ever used”. Harmon, who features regularly as a Sky Sports pundit, has selected the GC2, along with Foresight’s Head Measurement Technology (HMT) as the fitting and instruction technology for his world-renowned teaching facilities.

The 71-year-old has also worked with other major champions such as Ernie Els, Stewart Cink, Davis Love III, Fred Couples and Justin Leonard and with younger stars such as Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, Natalie Gulbis. Most recently he has worked with Jimmy Walker and Brandt Snedeker and was voted ‘top instructor’ in a poll of his peers conducted by Golf Digest for the last 14 years.

Harmon owns and operates Butch Harmon Schools of Golf in the USA, Macau and Dubai. He has already incorporated the Foresight Sports GC2 and HMT technologies into the daily fitting and instructional programmes at his school in Las Vegas, and will install them at the Floridian in Palm City, Florida.

Foresight’s technology images the exact movement of the dimple patterns on the golf ball, to ensure pure, accurate, reliable data, making it the only technology suitable for all seasons and conditions – whether indoors or on the range. The GC2 directly measures all essential ball data at launch using ultra-high-speed cameras while HMT independently, directly measures all critical club data.

Harmon stated, “At the Butch Harmon Schools of Golf we’ve tried every kind of launch monitor in the business, and there’s nothing that can compare with the GC2. It’s far and away the best we’ve ever used. We use it for teaching, for club-fitting … you can even use it for wedge work and I’ve found it’s a fantastic tool to give the students a look at what the club looks like at impact and how much spin you’re putting on the ball on every type of shot.” More at: www.foresightsports.eu
