Perfectstroke has recently announced it is offering a new golf instruction program
for high schools called the Perfectstroke Accelerated Learning System (PAL System).

Press Release Body = The Perfectstroke Accelerated Learning System (PAL System) has
been designed for high schools to provide a comprehensive and in depth golf program
for students wanting to learn golf and provide a pathway for careers in golf.
The program utilizes many of the products available on the Perfectstroke website
including the Perfectstroke Putting Aid, the Swing Setter, the Clubface Assistant,
Heavyiron, the Swingyde, Leaderboard and the SAM Puttlab.
The program is delivered by a PGA member and one of the schools sports conveners and
utilizes a comprehensive 12 part instruction and reference manual for the theory
side of the system.
On the practical side classes are usually undertaken up to 4 times a week on the
school\'s playing fields. Access to local golf courses is necessary for students to
put into practice what they have learned and to further develop their skills and
The PAL System operates under an understanding and observation of the Five Ball
Flight Laws so constant attention is paid to swing path and swing plane, clubface
control, balance and width of arc in the swing. Tools such as the Heavyiron and
Swingyde help to develop the path and correct plane in the swing and the Clubface
Assistant helps to develop a square clubface in relation to the path.
Students in PAL System programs also use training aids such as the Swing Setter to
help develop the correct timing of the wrist action during the swing. The PGA member
delivering the program will be fully conversant in the use of all Perfectstroke
products including the SAM PuttLab for putting stroke analysis. Participants in the
PAL program are tested several times per year on the SAM system and in between time
work with training aids such as the Perfectstroke Putting Aid, Perfectstroke Putting
Line and the Channel Mirror to help correct putting stroke problems.
The program can be run under all weather conditions as much of the training can be
done indoors in areas such as a gymnasium or assembly hall using training aids
including the Heavyiron, Swing Setter and Leaderboard. The Leaderboard is a
resistance type aid that helps to develop core strength and a stable lower half and
is used by many of the worlds top players including Adam Scott, Stuart Appleby and
US Open Champion Geoff Ogilvy.
The PAL System is currently being used by the Robina State High School and the
Kooralbyn International School. The Robina High School has a very strong golf
program with the 2006 Australian Ladies Masters Champion Amy Yang currently
participating. Queensland was the winners of the 2007 Ladies Interstate Matches with
three Robina High School students in the team. The Queensland and Australian junior
Champion is also a student of the Robina High School Golf Program. The Robina High
School Golf Program is co-ordinated by Shane Stevenson with Mark Officer as the golf
professional conducting the program. \"We are very happy to be involved with the PAL
System and the results speak for themselves. We have a number of very highly rated
elite players in the program who have been getting outstanding results both
internationally, nationally and locally but we also have a group of emerging players
who are benefiting from using this training system and the teaching from our
professional Mark Officer.\" Mr. Stevenson said. \"The theory provided in the
instruction manual also ensure that all of our students participating in the program
are developing an understanding of their swings as wells as the machinations of a
model swing. Having access to the SAM Puttlab system and the video analysis that we
do every few weeks also provide great feedback for the students.\"
Kooralbyn International School co-ordinator Paul Rogers is also very enthusiastic
about using the PAL System. \"We have very much an international mix of students in
our golf program and some of them have limited grasp of the English language.
However using this system it is very easy for the participants to understand how
they can improve their golf swings in regard to path and plane, clubface control and
timing. The instruction manual and assessments also help to ensure that they have an
understanding of where they are going as well as providing ways for us to measure
progress aside from just their scores. I definitely recommend the PAL System for its
use in a high school golf program.\"
Past Kooralbyn International School students include US PGA Tour players Adam Scott,
Steven Bowditch, Andrew Buckle and Gavin Flint who plays on the Asian Tour.
