By The PGA of America
CENTENNIAL, Colo. – GolfTEC – the world leader in golf lessons – is commemorating its 20th anniversary by providing one complimentary 30-minute lesson from Oct. 9-11 to any interested individuals who first make a donation to PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America.
Offered at all GolfTEC locations in the United States, this unique instruction opportunity allows golfers to sign up online or by calling 877.446.5383. To complete the process, customers will follow instructions on making a donation to PGA REACH, and must show their receipt upon arrival at GolfTEC. Each lesson is valued at more than $50, and individuals are encouraged to make a $20 suggested minimum contribution, but can donate more, if preferred.
Through the game of golf, PGA REACH fosters inclusion and positively impacts youth, military veterans and diverse communities. Aligned with the PGA’s 41 Section offices and charitable partners, PGA REACH leverages the game of golf to make a difference in the communities it serves.
“Over the past 20 years GolfTEC has grown from a small, regional operation to the largest provider of golf lessons in the world, and we’re just getting started,” says Joe Assell, Co-Founder and CEO of GolfTEC. “Our goal is to grow the game by helping players improve and enjoy golf more, which creates a devoted consumer base excited to play and share this amazing sport.”
Highly efficient and boasting a 96 percent success rate, GolfTEC lessons are taught one-on-one by Certified Personal Coaches, mostly in indoor bays that utilize proprietary teaching technology. Developing a comprehensive improvement plan for each student is the foundation of GolfTEC’s philosophy. This is embodied by the company’s popular game plans and lesson packs, which are available in a variety of options to suit all budgets.
“As the largest employer of PGA Professionals, it’s evident that GolfTEC shares a common goal with the PGA of America to grow the game of golf,” said Scott Kmiec, Senior Director of PGA REACH. “We are excited that PGA REACH will serve as the beneficiary of GolfTEC’s 20th anniversary celebration, in order to make an even more meaningful impact on the lives of youth, military and diverse communities.”
Since 1995, GolfTEC has taught more than 5.6 million lessons at nearly 200 locations worldwide. Committed to strengthening the industry and hiring only the best staff, GolfTEC coaches are comprised of experienced professionals, most of whom have taught thousands of lessons. Each goes through a rigorous multi-week certification at GolfTEC University, including continued advanced training to master the analysis of golf swing mechanics, the technology of the GolfTEC system and the most productive teaching techniques.
Among the technologies currently employed:
• g-SWING teaching technology – This patented software program displays real-time video with motion measurement, while capturing body positions throughout the swing. Coaches use the information to diagnose, communicate and measure the changes that will lead to improvement.
• TECfit – Using Foresight® launch monitors to capture critical performance data – ball flight, ball speed, clubhead speed, launch angle, sidespin and backspin – coaches cross-reference this information with GolfTEC’s proprietary SwingLabs® database to help select ideal clubs for each student’s swing. They can then accurately illustrate changes in ball performance that result from club adjustments.
