GolfTEC’s My Pro To Go offers personalized swing analysis, instruction

Published

on

In the ever-expanding market for golf improvement apps, one newcomer off to a solid start is My Pro To Go. The video-based mobile app was launched in 2012 by golf instruction provider GolfTEC and the Sports Illustrated Golf Group.

“We felt there was a space for mobile lessons and a mobile app,” said Steve Hockman, who has given more than 10,000 lessons and serves as one of the managers of teaching quality and manager of My Pro To Go at GolfTEC. “We have over 180 centers across the country and across the world and we are not able to reach some golfers who live outside of areas that do not have a GolfTEC so they need and want our instruction, it’s just not feasible to travel to an in-center facility.”

A major appeal of My Pro To Go is that it’s easy to use. After registering for an account, users purchase lesson credits ranging from $39 for a single lesson to $249 for a nine-lesson plan.

Next, video your swing from the front and side using a smartphone or other recording device, upload it to the My Pro To Go app or website and submit your swing video. In about 48 hours, you will receive a personalized expert swing lesson and game-improvement drills on your phone, tablet or home computer from your My Pro To Go coach.

My Pro To Go, with access to thousands of lessons from Golf Magazine and Golf.com and hundreds of PGA professionals through the GolfTEC teaching network, aims to equip players with everything they need to improve.

“I know how gratifying, frustrating, humbling, and enjoyable the game of golf can be and I have the ability to help students reach the enjoyment part faster and easier,” Hockman said. “I certainly do feel that the market for golf-focused apps is on the rise. With the younger generation being so tech savvy and about having what they need and want in the palm of their hand, I see why golf apps will work and be the next wave of instruction.”

    The ApP BLOWS, there’s no way to set it up and then get in position to film yourself. You need another person— it needs a timer setting. Also, it doesn’t capture enough frames….too blurry.

    My GolfTec iPhone app simply does 1/2 the things this article says. Very basic. Where is this huge database you speak of? And the app does not exist on my iPad…

    Not true at all. Try recording your swing using the V1 coaching app. You can view it frame by frame, it works surprisingly well.

    Now if we could only have our cellphones capture the frame rate required to analyze our swings…waste of money
