GolfTEC to introduce EWGA members to golf improvement program

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- GolfTEC—the undisputed leader in high-tech golf instruction, with a 95% success rate among its students—has a plan to help golfers break their "personal par" in one month. And among the first to hear how to make it happen will be members of the Executive Women's Golf Association at their national conference to be held May 8-11 at the Westin Hilton Head lsland Resort & Spa in Hilton Head, S.C.

Andy Hilts, Master PGA Professional and Vice President of Instruction and Education for GolfTEC, will present a special clinic for EWGA members based on the key concepts outlined in the new book, The Par Plan, published in association with Golf Magazine. The Par Plan features tee-to-green instruction provided by Hilts and GolfTEC's 600 Certified Personal Coaches, who are responsible for 25% of all individual private golf lessons in the U.S. each year. In fact, GolfTEC is on the verge of giving its four millionth lesson, a feat accomplished in just 17 years.

According to Hilts, the most important areas for breaking one's personal par—and the basis of his EWGA clinic—are driving, wedge play, and putting. "These are the most common errors that rob golfers from playing better," says Hilts, "and the most influential."

"We patterned the book after a weight-loss plan," says Hilts, "showing people exactly how to achieve significant improvement in their game in 30 days. For some people it might take longer than that, but it can be done with practice and hard work. It's especially effective for new and higher-handicap golfers who will see real improvement very quickly."

As part of the clinic, Hilts also will explain how to use "My Pro To Go," the smartphone app created by GolfTEC and Golf Magazine that works in conjunction with The Par Plan. The app allows a golfer to record his or her swing and submit it to a GolfTEC coach. What comes back is a personalized lesson and drills that the golfer can work on when most convenient.
