Distance Coaching Takes Center Stage For PGA Coaches Across America

Distance Coaching Takes Center Stage For PGA Coaches Across America

PGA of America Coaches across the country are uniting to flatten the curve to help bring the game that we love back as quickly as possible. Yet as we enter week four of the stay at home orders, PGA coaches are using this time to accelerate the use of Distance Coaching Technology (DCT) to support their students, clubs and their families.

Mark Durland, PGA Member for 17 years in Naples Florida coaches 2,180 players around the world that he has never met before.

“I tell the system how many hours I would like to coach a day and it sends me alerts when the player has submitted their golf swing.”

Using an AI assisted coaching tool it enables Mark to produce an immersive coaching experience for his students where only one metric matters: Their game improvement.

"When they get better then they come back more and more," Durland said. "I can deliver 10-15 sessions in one hour."

What is Distancing Coaching Technology?

DCT is similar to technologies used with distance medicine like using your phone to take a picture of your skin or record a heart rate.
