My Pro To Go: Personal, Professional Swing Analysis And Instruction - Anywhere, Anytime
Sports Illustrated Golf Group & GolfTEC deliver one-on-one digital instruction from GolfTEC-trained coaches
(NEW YORK - Oct. 2, 2012) - The SPORTS ILLUSTRATED GOLF GROUP (GOLF MAGAZINE, GOLF.com and SI GOLF+) and GolfTEC, the world's largest employer of highly trained golf instructors, has launched MY PRO TO GO (myprotogo.com), an exciting and easy new way for all - from beginners to scratch players - to receive the benefits of personal, customized instruction at home, on the range or on the go.
"MY PRO TO GO is an entirely new game-improvement experience designed for expert golfers as well as beginners," says Dick Raskopf, Publisher, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED GOLF GROUP. "MY PRO TO GO makes high-quality, customized, one-on-one private lessons accessible to golfers of all stripes."
MY PRO TO GO is simple: 1. Take a short video of your swing; 2. Submit the video; 3. A GolfTEC coach will respond with a detailed WebLesson® (swing analysis, customized drills, one-to-one coaching and answers to your follow-up questions). A single private lesson costs $39, with savings for a series of lessons. Go to MYPROTOGO.com for additional details. A free iOS companion app is available in the Apple iTunes® App store. (An Android app will be available this fall.)
"Our goal with MY PRO TO GO is to provide the best WebLessons® available," says Mike Clinton, COO, GolfTEC. "With more than 500 of the highest-trained coaches, I know we can accomplish this goal."
The SPORTS ILLUSTRATED GOLF GROUP (SIGG) and GolfTEC partnership aligns two of the most respected brands in golf instruction. SIGG reaches 12 million golfers monthly through GOLF MAGAZINE, SI GOLF+ and GOLF.com. MY PRO TO GO will receive editorial and marketing support across the SIGG print and digital platforms. GolfTEC coaches give 20% of all golf lessons in the U.S. annually, with a 95% success rate. All GolfTEC coaches are certified by GolfTEC University, a PGA-accredited training program. SIGG and GolfTEC are also partners in the popular See-Try-Buy clubfitting program. More than 3,000 golfers have been fit for new clubs at one of GolfTEC's 160 centers since See-Try-Buy was launched in 2010.
