Fred Griffin, long-time Director of Grand Cypress Academy of Golf (www.grandcypress.com) is to be one of the featured speakers, as well as the “host pro” for the second annual Science of Golf Instruction and Club Fitting convention hosted by FlightScope, Sept. 23-25 at the Villas of Grand Cypress Orlando.
The conference, which will attract many of the leading golf instructors, club fitters, industry professionals and swing enthusiasts, is designed primarily as an educational seminar, centered on FlightScope’s 3D technology for golf. Key speakers at this year’s event include Henri Johnson, founder and inventor of FlightScope, as well as fitting experts, application specialists and GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers Mitchell Spearman and Griffin.
Headquartered in Orlando, FlightScope is a golf tracking technology that accurately records ball trajectory and actual launch data. Club fitters worldwide, tour professionals and avid golfers devoted to game improvement use this technology at high-profile teaching centers, including the Grand Cypress Academy of Golf.
Flightscope is no stranger to Grand Cypress, where last year at the LPGA Tour’s CME Group Titleholders event, five Flightscope monitors were set up on the practice range for use by the LPGA Tour pros. Johnson, David Nell (an application specialist) and Griffin were on hand to help with the technology.
The Villas of Grand Cypress Orlando, adjacent to Walt Disney World, features Club Suites and Villas, as well as 45 holes of Jack Nicklaus-designed golf.
