PGA Junior Golf Camps Announces Partnership With Shotzoom

PGA Junior Golf Camps recently announced that it has partnered with Shotzoom, in an effort to integrate additional game improvement technology components within its camp curriculum. The partnership includes providing Golfshot: Golf GPS, Shotzoom’s industry-leading mobile golf GPS app, to the junior golfers participating at the Camps’ 75+ nationwide locations this summer. This effort is part of the Camps commitment to engage young golfers “where they live” and provide this growing segment with technology designed to assist with skill development as well as overall enjoyment of the game.

“We are thrilled with the partnership with Shotzoom and view the collaboration as a sign of our dedication to engage the game’s next generation. At the PGA Junior Golf Camps, our brand promise is to provide campers with the highest quality instruction as well as the tools and resources needed for continued support of developing golf skills. And the Golfshot app does just that,” said Marc Haddad, founder and CEO of PGA Junior Golf Camps.

PGA Junior Golf Camps are taught by PGA Professionals and designed for juniors ages 7-17 and of all skill levels. The camps’ curriculum allows kids to learn the game in a fun, supportive environment and includes fundamental golf skills, including full swing, putting and chipping-as well as life and character skills, such as good sportsmanship, camaraderie and integrity. The Camps are held at some of the nation’s most respected golf courses including TPC Harding, Chambers Bay, and Whistling Straits.

“We know that junior golfers use mobile technology as part of their everyday life. Golfshot will get them more engaged with golf and encourage them to stick with the game” said Ben Addoms, CEO of Shotzoom.

The Golfshot app is currently the #1 golf GPS app on the market with over 2.5 million members worldwide. Golfshot’s game-improving features include real-time GPS distances to all key hazards and targets on more than 40,000 golf courses worldwide, 3D flyover previews of each hole, in-app tee time booking and Handicap Index® tracking, personalized statistics and a digital scorecard.
