SwingU, the golf technology and media company, announced today that George Connor, three-time Connecticut Section PGA Teacher of the Year and Director Of Instruction at Connor Golf, Farmington Woods Golf Club (Avon, CT) has launched The Connor Golf app in partnership with SwingU Academies.
George has been teaching and coaching golfers for 30 years and has been recognized by various organizations and publications for his talents and abilities as a golf instructor. His vast list of accomplishments are highlighted by being named to Golf Digest’s Best Teachers In Your State list and winning the Connecticut Section PGA Teacher of the Year award three times.
The Connor Golf app will provide students with an engaging, academy-like experience for free, including a forum where both students and George will share video, stories and interact on everything in golf; a student swing locker for filming & saving swings; an on-demand library of drills & lessons; and 1-on-1 lessons starting at $29.99 per personalized lesson, including swing analysis and prescriptive drills. With the integration of SwingU’s top-rated GPS & scorecard app, George will be able to analyze students’ rounds, stats and on-the-course performance when students use SwingU on the course.
George’s teaching philosophy is based on three pedestals: goals, evaluation, and skills development. There is a hierarchy of skills that makes sense for development in any activity, and George is diligent to follow a learning sequence that makes sense for each individual player.
