Continuing to evolve is the name of the game when it comes to coaching golf in 2021. Students are always looking for the next “edge” on how to improve, so if you can be their resource in the quest for better golf, your business will benefit.
One way coaches Jake Thurm and Joe Hallett are providing their services at-home, on the road or wherever their student is located is through mobile apps, which have emerged as a go-to resource during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that’s limited in-person interaction.
“With an app, you can maintain the interaction in between lessons, too,” says Hallett, the PGA Director of Instruction at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tennessee. “When a student leaves you, usually you don’t hear from them. An app makes it easy to communicate, reach goals faster and improve exponentially.”
Adds Thurm, an elite coach in Chicago: “You can only get results when there are checks and balances. You can provide that in an app very easily.”
Both Thurm and Hallett have entrenched themselves in one of the many mobile apps available that’s become an excellent coaching tool: PerfectMotion (www.perfectmotion.io).
It’s offered as a free and Pro (for $5.99/month) mobile-friendly app that centers around the idea of making an efficient body motion that yields more distance and accuracy. Students can record their swings with the app’s motion-sensing and AI capabilities, choose a “coach” to guide them and be on their way – anywhere and anytime.
Coaches can create their own personalized service, too, combining their expertise with PerfectMotion’s technology for a flexible, revenue-boosting addition to their business.
“Name of the game: It’s affordable and easy for all parties to understand,” says Hallett. “For the young professional out there who wants to coach, or for those who might need a brand ‘refresh,’ this is a great answer to make extra lesson revenue, and make your players better, faster.”
