‘Ask-a-Pro’ teaching forum launched
26 Aug 2011
iseekgolf.com has launched ‘Ask-a-Pro’, a teaching forum that is available for all iseekgolf.com members to ask questions via a newly formed panel of national and international PGA golf instructors plus other recognised experts in specific fields. Golfers will receive free online instruction, tips and swing analysis from this panel.
The group is made up of numerous experts from all areas of the game such as coaching, full swing, short game, mental game and biomechanics.
Each of the pros will have their own designated discussion (thread) as well as several group panel discussions.
“The tour pros don’t depend on one instructor anymore, they rely on a team of experts to help in a much more holistic way and iseekgolf.com members now have easy access to the same expertise,” said Mike Orloff, PGA Member and co-owner of Golf Marketing Group, which manages content and advertising for iseekgolf.com. “We invite you to join in, “Ask-a-Pro” some questions, submit your swing via video for all to evaluate (if you’re brave!), hear the pros offer their particular insight into teaching at the high performance level, and do it all in the comfort of your own home or office.”
The iseekgolf.com official “Ask-a-Pro” team of golf professionals will be headed up by PGA “HeadPro” Grant Garrison. Grant and the team will be on hand to answer all of your questions about instruction, equipment, club repair and all things golf. The team’s pros also will regularly contribute to the site’s “Golf School” vault of articles, videos and interviews.
As an added bonus, several “guest” contributors from all facets of the game will pop in from time to time, so stay tuned.
For more information, sign up as a member and visit Ask a Pro to get started.
