Following the success of Danny Willett at golf’s Masters tournament in recent years, there was another Sheffield success story making its debut when the prestigious annual golf major returned to Augusta.
The ZEN Green Stage, which has been manufactured in South Yorkshire by golfing equipment, coaching and tech development company Zen Oracle, made an appearance in front of global TV audiences on Sky Sports when the US Masters Golf took place from 5-8 April.
The Green Stage is a digitally-adjustable playing surface, for both putting and full-swing. It is designed to aid a golfer’s green-reading, and can also be used as an indoor hitting platform.
Nick Middleton, Zen Oracle founder said: “The Zen Green Stage places the spotlight on a new type of golf experience.
“It recreates any makeable putt on the planet, and places you right there on the fairway where you can experience firing shots at the green from any kind of sloping lie.”
The Zen Green Stage is the latest development by Zen Oracle, which was also at the heart of the revolutionary FlowMotion coaching method, a technique used to teach beginners the basics of golf within hours of hitting their first ball.
FlowMotion, for which former Manchester United and England footballer Lee Sharpe is an ambassador, focuses on a player’s natural swing, allowing more freedom of movement, and is designed to encourage players to be able to ‘walk into’ a shot.
The foundation of the FlowMotion swing method was created by Bill Owens PGA, while developing his Golf Educative curriculum program for schools in France over the last 25 years.
In 2017 came Bill’s lifetime achievement – he received the highest accolade from his peers when he was awarded the European Presidents Award at the Professional Golfers’ of Europe, and his Golf Educative program is now tipped to become the 2018 Ryder Cup Legacy Project.
Zen’s Green Stage and coaching can be experienced by appointment at the Zen Studio at Newburgh Precision on Bessemer Way, Rotherham, S60 1FB.
