SwingU, the sports technology and media company focused on golf game improvement, announced today that Five Iron Golf of New York, New York, has launched the Five Iron Golf app in partnership with SwingU Academies.
Five Iron Golf is a high-tech, urban golf experience that provides both new and accomplished players with quality instruction and facilities in New York, Chicago and Baltimore. Each of Five Iron’s locations host Full Swing simulators, Trackman lesson studios, teaching professionals, lessons, practice time, leagues, club storage, showers, top-of-the-line complimentary clubs, and in-house club fitting. For the more casual golfer, Five Iron’s locations have full bar service, a fantastic food menu, games like ping pong, shuffleboard, pool or Golden Tee (depending on the location), widescreen TVs, NFL RedZone, and monthly golf clinics.
The Five Iron Golf app will provide students with an engaging, academy-like experience, including a content forum where both students and Five Iron Golf-certified instructors will share videos, stories and interact on everything in golf; a student swing locker for filming & saving swings; a VOD library of drills & lessons; 1-on-1 streamlined personal communication; and in-person lesson booking with the academy. With the integration of SwingU’s top-rated GPS & scorecard app, instructors at Five Iron Golf will be able to immediately analyze students’ rounds, stats and on-the-course performance when students use SwingU on the course.
Director of Golf Mike Doyle and his co-founders opened Five Iron Golf in 2017 with ambitions of creating an indoor facility where Mike could teach more lessons and golfers could improve their games — all while reshaping urban golf culture. Mike has been one of the most in-demand golf instructors in NYC for the past nine years, giving over 8,000 hours of lessons exclusively on golf simulators. With locations in NYC, Chicago and Baltimore and a Philadelphia venue opening in December, Mike and the Five Iron team are bringing technology-driven instruction to urban golfers across the US.
