Two Tour Pros for BAL.ON

20 March 2024

BAL.ON announces signing of Matti Schmid and Esther Henseleit as global brand ambassadors

Matti Schmid will represent BAL.ON on the PGA Tour and DP World Tour, while Esther Henseleit does so on the LPGA and Ladies European Tour. BAL.ON’s Smart Kit provides players with crucial swing data whenever and wherever they need it.

Since its official launch in August 2023, the BAL.ON Smart Kit, Continental’s first high-tech golf training aid, has seen PGA Professionals, Tour Pros, and amateur golfers in awe about its technology, functionality, and wide variety of use-cases in practice and play. Today, BAL.ON announces the signing of PGA Tour and DP World Tour Professional Matti Schmid and LPGA Tour Pro Esther Henseleit as global brand ambassadors.

The number 1 mobile pressure analysis system on TOUR

Both Golf Team Germany athletes represent what BAL.ON stands for: a continuous drive for improvement, finding the very own perfect swing, and inspiring golfers around the globe. While Henseleit played most of her amateur career for the Hamburger Golf-Club, one of Germany’s leading women’s teams, Schmid went to play college golf at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, before turning pro in 2021. In their first seasons on tour, both Henseleit and Schmid won “Rookie of the Year” honours in Europe, a feat no lady and only two men from Germany have accomplished before. Since then, both have made their ways onto the leading competitive tours in the world, the LPGA and PGA Tour.

Matti Schmid: BAL.ON is a "complete game changer for me!"

“Golfers are true athletes nowadays and working on ground interaction has been trending massively with top coaches around the world. It is imperative to get the fundament of your swing right, optimize timings and maximize power to gain a competitive edge”, explains Schmid, who has been working with pressure measurement systems in the past.

“For me personally, it is key to record benchmark data on how I move. Thus, I have something to compare against when the swing feels a bit off. Now, with the BAL.ON Smart Kit, being able to do this on the go, on tournament practice days or even during warm-up, is a complete game changer! In the few months since I started using the BAL.ON Smart Kit, I have been amazed by its accuracy and usability and I am confident it will help me to become more successful than ever. I am proud to represent BAL.ON as their first brand ambassador on the PGA Tour and am very excited on the things to come!”

Esther Henseleit

"I gain speed and consistency", says Esther Henseleit

Having gotten in touch with BAL.ON for the first-time end of 2023, Henseleit immediately liked the concept of a mobile pressure measurement system to use at home, on the range, in short game practice and on-course training. “I really like BAL.ON for so many reasons. It is great for showing me how I’m using the ground and how I can be more efficient, helping me gain speed and consistency, especially off the tee. It’s also been a great addition to my short game practice, understanding how my pressure points influence trajectory, spin, and feel”, said Henseleit after having worked with BAL.ON for a couple of months.

“I am extremely happy to now join the team at BAL.ON as global brand ambassador and hopefully help many golfers out there improving their game.”

Hard work, dedication, and talent have brought them towards the pinnacle of professional golf and their undisputed hunger for more will get them places. We are thrilled, they have chosen BAL.ON as their go-to training tool and swing analysis system.” – Felix Lindner, Head of BAL.ON
