PGA launches teaching app

The Professional Golfers Association, which represents 7,500 teaching professionals and based at The Belfry, is introducing a revolutionary app which it hopes will reinvigorate the practice regimes of professionals and club amateurs everywhere.

PGA Swing Guru comes fully-loaded with features that will connect golfers and their PGA professionals and add skills, fun and a competitive edge to every aspect of golf.

One version of the app is for PGA professionals and the other for the average golfers with specific elements for each target audience.

Among the features are a skills zone, golf challenges, a personal locker room, find your PGA pro and a news feed. In addition, PGA pros will be able to access information input by their students – to customise lessons.
Mike Taylor, its co-creator says: “It has been really exciting tapping into the knowledge of the PGA team and their members and to see Swing Guru go from concept to launch.

“The PGA team has embraced the app’s philosophy of every golfer having real improvement potential supported by great coaching, underpinned by great smart phone technology.

Kyle Phillpots, PGA director of education and career development, adds: “What has been developed is a very content rich app which will enhance the relationship between the PGA professional and the player. It will enable the PGA pro to better understand the areas of the game that their students need improving adding meaning to practice.”

The app is available to purchase in the iTunes store with an Android version in development for release shortly after.
