This sounds too good to be true

How can we give such high quality lessons at a fraction of the price?
And, how does one pro handle all these people when you have a million users?
We use technology to streamline the job of our PGA Pro, so he can focus simply on doing what he's great at - giving lessons and analyzing golf swings - and spend zero time on things like getting new customers, paperwork, standing behind somebody for an hour, etc. Our system can scale to an infinite number of pros, so when one pro gets overwhelmed, we'll bring in another to service you and keep quality high.
Your pro is assigned to you, and will be your dedicated golf coach for every lesson. The more lessons he gives, the more he knows about you, and the more information he has at his fingertips. Every lesson gets more dialed in, and more effective.
Technology also puts way more information at the fingertips of your golf coach than is traditionally available to most instructors. If you use Swing by Swing GPS and Scorecard on the course, you'll collect valuable stats and tendencies that are available to your pro when he analyzes your swing.
Who should not take these lessons?
Video lessons are not for everybody! If you already regularly shoot in the 70's, you may not gain as much benefit as those who shoot 80+.
If you shoot 90+ regularly, your coach should be able to help you significantly improve your game!
What kind of information can my PGA instructor get from a simple video?
Every detail of a golf swing can be analyzed, because after all, the ball flight itself is just an extension of your swing. These days, everybody from PGA Pros to aspiring junior golfers use video lessons to get better.
Plus, if you use Swing by Swing GPS on the course, your coach will have access to all your other stats and tendencies to round out the information that can't be inferred from your swing.
Is this a recurring plan or a one-time purchase?
Pro Looper is a membership, and the membership fee will automatically recur on a monthly or yearly schedule (depends on which package you purchase).
Can I work on short game stuff? Chipping and putting?
Yes! Many of our users send in their chipping and putting videos. In fact, your pro may encourage it! Since he has access to all your stats and tendencies, including short game info, he might recommend that your swing is in a good place but you need to work on chipping and putting.
You can be assured that your pro will always be ready and willing to work on whatever you want.
Do I have to hit a golf ball or can I just swing my club?
It is recommended that you hit an actual golf ball when filming your swing. Have you ever taken a couple of perfect practice swings, then stood over the ball and duffed it out-of-bounds? Yep... we all do - it's amazing how much of a difference simply hitting a small white object can make to your golf swing. It's just fine, though, to hit a practice ball, plastic wiffle ball, or into a net.
What is the guarantee policy?

Can I ask my instructor questions?
Yes! When you submit your video, you can ask your instructor a specific question. Then, after you get your video lesson back, you can ask more questions. It's easy, and your instructor will answer quickly.
Do I need a smart phone, or can I use a camera?
You can use pretty much any digital camera to capture your swing and send it to us. You just need to upload your video via our website, or email it to your coach.
If you have questions about how to use your phone or digital camera to record your swing, just contact your golf concierge and he will help out.
What if I don't like my instructor? Can I get a different one?
If you don't like your instructor, or if you don't feel like you're getting value out of the instruction, you can request a refund within 30-days and get your money back. (That's never actually happened... but there's a first time for everything!)
How can the Swing by Swing GPS app complement my lesson package?
Usage of the mobile app is not required to take these golf lessons, but when you do use the mobile app, you get a lot of benefits!
When you buy Pro Looper, all the technology of Looper comes included for a full year! All the scores and stats and club tracker info you collect through the Swing by Swing mobile app is included at your golf coach's fingertips, and he can use it to provide more robust and informed instruction.
All you need to do is use the Swing by Swing mobile app on the course when you're golfing, or you can keep your stats manually and enter them via the website. The rest will happen automatically when you take a lesson.
