Best Place to Perfect Your Swing - 2012
Ping Swing Analysis Lab
There are a lot ultramodern things afoot (Air Traffic Control Simulator Lab, anyone?) at Arizona State University's Polytechnic campus, a 600-acre offshoot campus in southeast Mesa. The many professional and technical programs that characterize the Poly campus include a golf-management major with students to whom a golden golf swing means just as much as a great GPA. At the high-tech Ping Swing Analysis Lab, students can analyze their swing and harness the power of science to improve their skills. The lab, named after Phoenix-based golf equipment manufacturer Ping, resulted from a donation by the owners of Ping, the Solheim family. Ping also offers free tours of its north Phoenix factory and free walk-in fittings with their factory-trained professional club fitters.
