ARTICLE - FAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
The TaylorMade Performance Lab in Melbourne is the only place in the Southern hemisphere where the average Joe can get a pro fitting…..Strapped in Velcro and with something akin to a chess set attached to me, I took swings at a special reflective ball in a dark room reminiscent of a bank vault. We watched my 3D scale avatar retake every swing, in all its glory, revealing the clubhead swing planes, backspin and loft, as well as my centre of gravity, wrist cocking angle and body lines, plus much more......It’s like Wii on steroids. The result? I’m hitting straight and 40 per cent further with a driver.

ARTICLE - THE PERFECT FIT
The TMPL uses 3-D motion capture technology and is the only one of its kind in Australia. Incredibly, the 3-D motion capture technology is from the same company that has used it to create those amazing images in The Matrix, Lord of the Rings, Titanic and a host of EA Sports games. Until now it has been the exclusive domain of TaylorMade’s “kingdom’ in California. Not anymore. Now it has been set up at Australia’s acknowledged home of golf, Melbourne, to give that golfmad city something only tour pros have been able to use in the past. It’s a game changer!

I can’t believe how much I’ve learned about my golf swing using the MAT-T System. The 3D image shows you swing speed, lie angle, ball speed — everything you’d want to know as a golfer. After a fitting, I know my equipment is perfect for me and that gives me the confidence to play well.
PGA TOUR PROFESSIONAL
I’m a very technical player, and the MAT-T system tells me everything
I want to know about my golf swing. The immediate feedback with
motion capture is what seperates a TaylorMade fitting from all other
custom fitting experiences. I wouldn’t trust anything else.
PGA TOUR PROFESSIONAL
I remember the first time I used the MAT-T system it completely
blew me away. The motion capture technology is amazing. It offers
total feedback on my golf swing and gives me the confidence in my
equipment that I need to compete on the PGA Tour.
PGA TOUR PROFESSIONAL
The MAT-T System is an incredible tool for anygolfer. To make a series
of swings and see exactly what’s happening with the motion capture is so
beneficial. I love knowing that when I leave a fitting session, my equipment
is built perfectly for my game.

Article - The Perfect Fit
With a desire to upgrade my decade-old clubs and the TaylorMade Performance Lab now operating at the Melbourne Golf Academy, it was a perfect marriage of opportunity and technology…When Lowe notes that the recommended driver is actually flying at the same height as the 6-iron shots I’d been hitting, he switched drivers, including loft and face setting, and hands me another. The result? By changing nothing other than the club and its set-up characteristics, I picked up 11 meters. Instantly. So complete and comprehensive is the fitting process, I can’t imagine anyone walking out of there without placing an order. Certainly my wallet was emptier, but my appetite for playing the game with my first custom-fit set of club was far healthier.
