Nike Tour Tech Van Schedules Stop At Resort

Farmington, PA (March 23, 2009) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Nike Golf are once again joining forces to provide the latest in technology to area golfers. In 2008, Nemacolin Woodlands unveiled the Nike Shop at the Links, a one-of-a-kind golf pro shop featuring an extensive selection of Nike Golf Apparel and Equipment.
This year, the Nemacolin Golf Academy will feature the Nike 360° Fitting System. Introduced in 2008, the Nike 360° Fitting System is distinguished by the fact that it provides a full bag fitting system allowing golfers to maximize their performance on the course by being fit for every club in their bag ranging from the drive to the lob wedge.
According to resort Director of Golf, Dennis Clark, “The 360° is the most perfect club fitting system method I’ve ever used. It’s 100% automated and takes all guesswork out of the equation. Your club head speed, ball speed and spin rate, as determined by the computer determine exactly your club specifications.”
While the Nike 360° Fitting System is available daily at the resort, on Friday, May 1, area golfers will have a most unique opportunity to reserve a spot for a special club and golf ball fitting session as the Nike Tech Van will be visiting the resort. The Tech Van which travels to tournament sites throughout the country and is exclusive to PGA Tour Professionals will be making a special stop at Nemacolin Woodlands Mystic Rock practice facility. A maximum of (seven) 45 minute appointments will be offered for the nominal fee of $50 which includes the fitting, a Nike golf hat and one dozen golf balls. Any clubs purchased at these fittings will be built in the Tech Van on site and available for the golfer to take with them. “It’s one stop shopping at its absolute finest” says Clark.
The Nemacolin Woodlands Golf Academy founded in 1987 is led by Clark, a PGA Master Professional and two time Teacher of the Year. The Academy subscribes to the philosophy that no two swings are alike so no two lessons should be either and each instructor takes particular care to tailor each lesson to the individual needs of the student.   Private lessons and club fittings are available daily by appointment.
For more information or to reserve a Tour Tech Van fitting session, please call 724-329-1855 or e-mail To schedule a lesson at the Nemacolin Woodlands Golf Academy, please call 724-329-6470 after April 3rd.
