I just hung out with my family, and just kind of stayed to myself, honestly, and just had to let it go and let time pass.”

MOBILE TRAINING: V1 Sports (V1), producers of a golf video instruction technology platform for teaching pros and golfers, has released a new V1 Golf IOS App. “The new release is an example of our passion for empowering instructors and golfers to be their best,” Chris McGinley, CEO of V1 Sports, said. “By asking the right questions and listening closely to our users, we continue to help them improve.”

The new app helps golfers capture their swing on video and share it with their V1 teaching pro, so that they can receive digital lessons and instruction at home, on the range, or on the road. The app allows V1 instructors to deliver lessons created with V1’s Pro software that include video, telestration, voiceover and content directly to their students’ mobile device.

The V1 Golf Plus subscription allows golfers access to one of the largest libraries of tour swings for comparison and exclusive tips and drills.
