A new show airing this weekend will make most hackers wish they'd paid more attention in science class. While most of us accept that advances in technology have helped PGA Tour stars hit the ball off the planet, it is their mastery of science that has raised every element of the modern game, according to the producers of the show, Science of Golf, airing May 19 on CBS.
The Science of Golf will show how the best players on the PGA TOUR utilize cutting edge technology to elevate their game to the highest level," said Gil Kerr, the Tour's SVP of Programming. "We went inside the laboratories of virtually every major golf equipment manufacturer. We sat down with the best swing coaches in the game today—including Butch Harmon, Hank Haney, David Leadbetter, Jim McLean, Jim Flick and Dave Pelz—and we have combined this with the best of the PGA TOUR archives and never before seen super slow motion footage to capture how the best players in the game utilize science and technology on and off the course."
