SwingU ambassador Austin Hitt earns Korn Ferry Tour card

HARTFORD – SwingU, the sports technology and media company, would like to congratulate SwingU Ambassador Austin Hitt for earning his 2024 Korn Ferry Tour card by virtue of finishing in the top five of the PGA Tour Latinoamérica’s Totalplay Cup standings.

Hitt, a third-year professional who has played on the PGA Tour Latinoamérica the last two seasons, started using the SwingU App and its proprietary Strokes Gained and stat tracking system in June 2021. He has logged more than 260 rounds on the system.

“I have been on the platform for just over two years and my entire time as a professional,” Hitt said. “I quickly realized through strokes gained the areas of my game that I needed to improve. 

“I pinpointed my driving and putting as areas to focus on. Since then, I have steadily improved my game at the professional level, and I am looking forward to continuing to improve.”

Hitt finished fourth in the season-long standings in 2023 thanks to 10 made cuts in 12 starts, highlighted by a pair of runner-up finishes at the Colombia Classic presented by Rocha Brothers and the Inter Rapidisimo Golf Championship presented by Volvo.

Hitt will be joined by fellow Totalplay Cup qualifiers Chandler Blanchet, Myles Creighton, Walker Lee and Charlie Hillier on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2024.

Since the start of 2021, more than 100 active professional and top-tier collegiate golfers have been using the SwingU App and Strokes Gained platform to track their advanced statistics and game-improvement data.
