SwingU, the golf technology and media company, announced today that Bill Abrams, PGA Director of Instruction at the Golf Solutions Academy in Crete, IL and Pembroke Pines, FL, has launched the Golf Solutions Academy app in partnership with SwingU Academies.
Utilizing a simple approach to allow players a consistent, repeatable swing and outstanding results, Abrams’ focus is placed on total player development. A PGA Member, U.S. Kids Top-50 Master Teacher and Positive Coaching Alliance Double Goal Coach with certifications in BodiTrak, Blast Motion, Foresight, Eyeline and PING-Certified Club Fitting, Abrams has coached numerous players of all levels to exceed their expectations and goals. He continues to develop juniors into high school and collegiate competitors by stressing solid fundamentals & mindsets in order to create happy golf-loving players.
The Golf Solutions Academy app will provide students with an engaging, academy-like experience, including a content forum where both students and Golf Solutions Academy-certified instructors will share video, stories and interact on everything in golf; a student swing locker for filming & saving swings; a VOD library of drills & lessons; and 1-on-1 streamlined personal communication and lesson booking directly from the app. Due to the integration of SwingU’s top-rated GPS & scorecard app, instructors at Golf Solutions Academy will be able to immediately analyze students’ rounds, stats and on-the-course performance when students use SwingU on the course.
Trained by legendary instructor Jimmy Ballard, Abrams said, “I will never tell you, ‘You need to get worse before you get better.’ It’s all about your game getting better and increasing your enjoyment and satisfaction. This positive approach has reaped huge benefits for many players.”
