Over 470,000 lessons were sent between V1 Pro coaches and V1 Golf students last year

NOVI, Mich. (February 13, 2024) - V1 Sports, the pioneer in swing video analysis solutions for coaches and athletes, is proud to announce the top-10 lesson senders of 2023, showcasing the power of coaches sending video instruction and recaps directly to their students through the V1 GOLF app, resulting in an average 25 percent increase in customer retention over coaches who don’t send video.

For nearly 30 years, V1 Sports has been committed to developing a player improvement ecosystem that fosters deeper connections between coach and student leading to lower scores and more enjoyment, while simultaneously elevating a coach’s business.

"We are thrilled to recognize the outstanding achievements of the top-10 lesson senders of 2023, said Alex Prasad, CEO of V1 Sports. “Their dedication to leveraging V1 PRO for golf instruction reflects the impact our platform has on the industry. Lesson delivery between V1 PRO and V1 GOLF is a key driver in an instructor’s business and we will continue our commitment to providing coaches with the tools and knowledge needed to excel in today's competitive golf coaching landscape."
