What?

ProGolfMe app makes it easy for students to play their best golf by giving them access to a world-class coach. A student films their swing or selects from their gallery and chooses a coach of their choice. They then receive a personal video with tips and personalised drills to improve their game. The app complements an in-person lesson and encourages communication, yet removes the cost and time required to get personal coaching. In a separate app, the designers have made it easy for coaches to monetise their services online and expand their client-base with the flexibility to coach students anytime, no matter where they are in the world.

Where?

Android Play Store (Mid-2018), iTunes, iOS store and www.progolfme.com

Who?

Brendan Glynn founded the company in 2016 and commissioned the build of the commercial apps using local and international talent. Kerrod Gray is an Advanced Certified PGA Teaching Professional delivering golf coaching at the Joondalup Resort and Margaret River Golf Club. He joined ProGolfMe with a firm belief that the future of golf coaching will grow through the use of personal smart devices.

Quotation?

“With ProGolfMe a student can request a personal lesson from a coach of their choice within one minute of creating a profile on the app,” Brendan Glynn said.
