Following this month’s PGA Merchandise Show, expect to see new launch monitor technology from many of the category’s major producers: including TrackMan, Foresight Sports and FlightScope. Look to the February issue of Golf Range Magazine for full details on all the new offerings. One of the world’s most renowned golf coaches, David Leadbetter, launched his first-ever academy in India at the Oxford Golf Resort in Pune. Former President of the Indian Golf Union and owner of the resort, Anil Seolekar, unveiled the new academy alongside Leadbetter earlier this month.

Two years ago, the Billy W. Williams Golf Practice Facility on the campus of Baylor University in Waco, Texas was nothing more than a dream and a vision of what could be. Earlier this month, the dream was realized when the Baylor men’s and women’s golf teams took their first shots from the 16- acre on-campus practice facility. “To the life of a student-athlete and the day-to-day deal they go through – they have school and practice and lunch and family life and friends,” said women’s coach Jay Goble. “To have it where they can literally come a minute down the road and be able to work on their game whenever they have time, is unbelievable. There’s not another opportunity in the Big 12 that has their practice facility not only this nice but this close to campus.”
