SwingU, the golf technology and media company, would like to congratulate SwingU Versus Ambassador client Victor Ciesielski for being recognized by the PGA of Ontario as its 2022 Player of the Year. Ciesielski also captured the Apprentice Player of the Year title.
The Head Teaching Professional at the VC Golf Academy based out of the Galt Country Club in Cambridge, Ontario, Victor was awarded the Breenie Cup, recognizing him as an outstanding player among the ranks of the PGA of Ontario membership based upon a season-long points competition.
“It’s pretty special,” Ciesielski said. “Our province and our nation has so many incredible players that it means a lot. To be the most consistent and to be able to have the trophy at the end of the year is what we’re all gunning for.
“My goal at the beginning of every year is to get to the top of the Order of Merit, and I was able to do that this year, so pretty fortunate and pretty happy with my results.”
Ciesielski started using the SwingU App and its proprietary Versus strokes gained and stat tracking system in June 2022. Since then, Victor won the Match Play Championship at Beacon Hall Golf Club in September and posted four other top-5 finishes at PGA of Ontario events.

“I want to get my strokes gained to a certain number, and SwingU definitely helps make things easier and so much clearer,” Ciesielski said. “The platform does such a great job of showing you exactly what your stats are, where you are day-to-day. You can decipher from tournament rounds to regular rounds.
“Also, day-to-day, week-to-week and month-to-month, (SwingU) gives you so much content and videos that you’re able to develop ideas and find drills. The app definitely shows you holes where there are areas of opportunity and and also develop your strengths. It’s a pretty cool platform.”
Heading into the offseason, Ciesielski has a plan in place that he hopes will allow him to peak when he plays in the events he holds in the highest regard next summer.
Since the start of 2021, more than 100 active professional and top-tier collegiate golfers are using the SwingU App and Versus platform to track their strokes gained and game-improvement data.
