"One of our biggest initiatives each year is ensuring we do our part to help grow this wonderful game," says Joe Assell, Co-Founder and CEO of GolfTEC. "Through our work with PGA REACH we're able to bring golf and its positive impacts to an ever-expanding audience."

Highly efficient and boasting a 96 percent success rate, GolfTEC lessons are taught one-on-one by Certified Personal Coaches, mostly in indoor bays that utilize proprietary teaching technology. Developing a comprehensive improvement plan for each student is the foundation of GolfTEC's philosophy. This is embodied by the company's popular game plans and lesson packs, which are available in a variety of options to suit all budgets.

"As the largest employer of PGA Professionals and with so many instructional centers around the world, GolfTEC is uniquely positioned to truly impact our mission," said Scott Kmiec, Senior Director of PGA REACH. "We are excited to be partnering with them to positively influence the lives of youth, military and diverse communities through this promotion."

GolfTEC has taught more than 6 million lessons at over 200 locations worldwide. Committed to strengthening the industry and hiring only the best staff, GolfTEC coaches are comprised of experienced professionals, most of whom have taught thousands of lessons. Each goes through a rigorous multi-week certification at GolfTEC University, including continued advanced training to master the analysis of golf swing mechanics, the technology of the GolfTEC system and the most productive teaching techniques.

Each GolfTEC student undergoes a Swing Evaluation to assess their skill, followed by a certified personal coach recommending a specific game plan, which includes fundamental elements like course strategy and a TECfit® club fitting session. While the majority of lessons are taught indoors in private bays, coaches also accompany players for on-course/outdoor lessons to ensure they are comfortable in real world situations.
