It’s cold outside and there aren’t many places to work on your game. The Back Nine Golf Academy in Bentonville is ready to help out.
It’s a business that provides the video proof that your swing needs work, and the owner can show you how to fix it.
Philip Walker is a former University of Arkansas golfer, and he also played professionally for several years.
“We are a fully functional academy and we use the latest technology to improve their golf game.”
It’s tough to teach an old swing new tricks, but it can be done.The cameras show frame by frame, angle by angle, what a swing is supposed to look like.
It’s awkward at first, but Philip says if you can see what’s wrong… it’s much easier to ‘understand’ how to fix it.
“We’re using the V-1 golf system. Tiger Woods is talking about how all these kids come out on tour with the perfect golf swing. Well, they are using V-1 golf.”
Hour and half hour lessons are available, but don’t expect this to be a quick fix: Hard work is required.
“It’s basically video analysis from two different angles. So we have the face on and the down the line view. We can frame by frame like what we’re gonna do… and figure out what we’re going to do to improve it.”
The facility offers a practice putting green, and even a golf simulator where you can play Pebble Beach and other great courses from around the world.
Corporate and team building events are also available.
