We are really excited to announce that ShortGolf has made its official launch in the US and is now for purchase on GolfTrainingAids.com! Developed by PGA Professional Coaches with decades of teaching experience, these are products that have been designed to help all levels and ages of golfers from juniors to seniors. We use the term “first touch” golf equipment and training system because it’s made for those just beginning the game. Wally Armstrong, widely regarded as the ‘father of first touch golf systems” joined forces with product expert Jonathan Apps and ShortGolf to launch this new venture.
Going back to the early 2000’s with golf struggling to attract a younger generation, lifelong golf pro and former Tour player Chris Smith launched YMG, (Young Masters Golf) a structured golf education programme designed to help coaches and golf clubs attract kids to the game. YMG was an immediate success, and has subsequently introduced hundreds of thousands of kids to the game worldwide, including Tour stars Matt Fitzpatrick and Jordan Smith. Chris soon realised that to really grow the game they needed to reach out beyond traditional golf facilities and target kids in schools.
Now if you’re wondering what makes ShortGolf so unique and special, it’s because each element is specifically designed to emulate the real game of golf while making it easier and more fun. ShortGolf’s program builds on the fundamentals of putting, chipping, pitching and full shot to develop playing ability quickly and effectively, and incorporates equipment and instruction that allow golf to be learned and played in non-traditional venues, such as in a gym or even your backyard. Choose between a variety of Coaching Kits, clubs, targets and various training aids to make your golf experience enjoyable!
