A team of UK PGA Professionals are ready to challenge the traditional model for getting the best from your game with the launch of Golfin, a new mobile platform for interactive game improvement.

Driven by feedback from existing clients and input from golfers who don’t take golf lessons, the team behind Golfin have designed an online coaching system that combines the convenience for the golfer of working on their game wherever and whenever they choose and the bespoke, one-to-one service, expected from the very best golf lessons.

Sam Carr, Golfin’s Director of Coaching

“Lessons with a PGA Professional are without question, the best way to improve your game,” commented Golfin Director of Coaching Sam Carr. “The whole Golfin team are experienced PGA Professionals and we know that golfers who receive great coaching and take the time to work on their game will improve.

“But the simple fact is that despite every golfer having frustrations with their game, very few take lessons. We also know that there are a huge number of golfers consuming instruction and game improvement tips online. So we designed the Golfin coaching system to combine the high quality, one-to-one attention of a PGA Professional with the convenience of online instruction – whenever and wherever a golfer wants.”

Golfin coaching can be purchased in three different packages depending on the desired level of input. Common to each package is the in-depth Golfin consultation process. This one-to-one phone or video call identifies goals based on the golfer’s hopes for their game and creates a performance blueprint to direct their progress. This begins the meaningful coach-golfer relationship that lies at the heart of the most successful coaching. Following initial consultation, the golfer simply sends a video of their swing via Golfin’s intuitive online coaching platform and the Golfin coach will return a personalised video explaining any issues with technique, along with video tips and drills tailored specifically to the golfer’s game.

Alongside the Golfin coaching packages, Golfin has designed a free complimentary app that tracks a golfer’s data from the course or practice range. Once data is submitted, the golfer can either review their own performance and access free Golfin video drills, or work with their Golfin coach on a bespoke program designed to address the identified issues.

The app also works as a free standalone coaching system for any golfer, with data analysis and a library of free coaching tips that anyone can access. An updated version of the app is due soon, with more services and free content to enhance the online golf experience.

“We want to connect more golfers with top quality coaching, and have come to the conclusion that if more golfer’s aren’t coming to PGA Pro’s then we need to go to the golfers,“ said Carr. “Our team at Golfin has Professionals all round the world and we’re ready to deliver golf coaching whenever a golfer wants. Using our Golfin approach, golfers can work on their game while sat at their desk or on the sofa late at night. The tips and advice from our coaching packages through to the app are data driven and tailored to a golfers’ game. So whatever Golfin experience they choose, it’s their time, their game and their goals, now get Golfin!”
