Etiquette Moments by the Etiquette Nerds?

 

Amy and Jeff developed these short video messages as a way to work with their past golf students.  Being based in the Coachella Valley, many of these students were seasonal.  Snow Birds for example would live and work in Canada but come winter; play in Palm Springs.  Video was found to be a valuable tool to keep in touch with them.  They soon discovered it could not only reinforce their golf lessons but they could create discussion with them as well and the topics ranged from the golf rules and pace of play to golf etiquette.

Needless to say these videos became quite popular.  Soon Jeff and Amy were sharing these videos with other golf courses and instructors in Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia.  Word of this popularity reached the Golf Hall of Fame.  PGA America even wrote a nice article about the Etiquette Nerds.  To date Jeff and Amy have created over 120 different videos on topics ranging from the rules of golf, to on-course etiquette to pace of play, to how to care for the course as well as the driving range.  They have approximately 50 videos covering topics such as putting, driving the ball and even on-course strategies.  Videos expanded to now include instructional videos to help their students after their lesson.

Because a majority of their clients are seasonal SwingPointMedia this past year developed an online golf learning program.

 

Called The Online Golf Clinic this new service allows anyone to become a member, giving full access to our library of drills, as well as participate in their monthly live streaming interactive clinics.  Their desire is to continue to be a help to golfers of all ages, allow them to reach their potential and enjoy the game.  These interactive video clinics are transmitted to their golf students anywhere.  And finally to the golfer receiving instruction SwingPointMedia provides a weekly, short, informative, and fun video they call Etiquette Moments.
