Experience OptiShot Academy across all platforms
Optishot Academy is accessible on over 1000 devices including iOS devices, Android devices, MACs and PC.
The OptiShot Academy is designed for beginning and average players. It is practical training program that is designed to help students learn what influences the ball flight and how to effectively help yourself while training and playing.
The best way to learn is to get started with the Mindset videos. This will help you to see a different approach to learning, improving, and playing. Once you have completed the mindset videos, start by being open to new possibilities while you work your way through the outlined training program.
To get started, you will have to watch the assessment videos and run the assessment. This will give you a starting point for improvement. For the assessments that you did not hit the benchmark, you will then move to the training videos and run the experiments prescribed. Continually go back to the assessment phase so you can watch yourself make measurable progress in reasonable time. As you move forward through the training plan, you can access all training videos right from your phone, tablet, or computer. Each video gives you a different way to approach and train the different skills needed. The goal is to help you become comfortable and confident on the golf course.
Always. There will be three new videos a month that automatically become part of your subscription as soon as they are released. We will gear those videos based on customer feedback, individual profiles, and group lessons. (Are we actually going to be able to deliver on this promise. If not, we would take this part out.)
You are guaranteed to reduce your frustration and anxiety and feel more comfortable and confident on the course. Try for free for 7 days. Once you're in, give the training program 6 months. After 6 months cancel anytime.
Absolutely! There is a private Facebook group meant for OptiShot Academy subscribers that is specifically for discussing training, swing issues and more with both instructors and the greater community.
