V1 Sports reports increase in remote video lessons

4.18pm 26th March 2020 - Corporate

V1 Sports, producers of the industry-leading golf video swing analysis platform for teaching pros and golfers, has reported a noticeable increase in golfer registrations, as well as the number of teaching professionals signing up to the V1 Pro system, following the closure of golf courses and driving ranges due to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The company has recent passed the four million mark for online lessons delivered through the platform, with a surge in interest in recent weeks from golfers who have been forced to stay at home just as the new golf season was about to move into full swing.

“Golf is so much of a uniting power in the lives of those who love playing the game, as well as those who teach for a living,” said V1 Sports CEO Bryan Finnerty. “Now, more than ever, we want to encourage golfers to reconnect to their lesson routines and support their favourite teaching pro.

“Just as mobile teleconferencing companies like Zoom are filling a need for business professionals, V1 is proud to be a turnkey solution that keeps golfers and their teachers in touch even when remote communication is their only option.”

V1’s system of interactive remote golf lessons are powered by easy-to-use tools for video swing capture and sharing, as well as dynamic functions that help pros create detailed video lessons with voice-over instruction and visual feedback through telestration. From home, golfers can film and send their swings to the teaching pro of their choice and receive lessons and drills using the V1 Golf mobile app.

“I teach college golfers and young playing professionals from several different states, so the interactivity of the V1 Golf App and my V1 Pro studio has been a great help in keeping my students on schedule and in touch with their improvement,” says V1 Pro user Buck Mayers, Director of Instruction at Escondido Golf & Lake Club in Texas. “I’ve talked to many pros who are looking into offering pre-booked packages for remote video lessons. It’s time for the industry to use its creativity and tools like the V1 system.”

The 30-day free trial of V1 Pro gives coaches a chance to test the new 2020 V1 Pro Studio software system and then decide to sign up for one of three plans: V1 Complete (a combination of V1 Pro Studio and V1 Mobile), V1 Pro or V1 Mobile to complete interactive lessons with video, voice-over and telestration. 

Golf instructors can sign up for a 30-day trial of V1 Pro Complete by visiting https://v1sports.com/coaches/v1-pro/ or contacting customer-success@v1sports.com.

The company has also produced a number of YouTube videos that explain how the V1 platform can help coaches communicate with golfers and vice versa.
