A few weeks ago, we told you about a revolutionary new web-based software tool for college golf coaches called MySmartGolf.com.
Bill Schneider, one of the co-founders of this technology, says that the response to their entry into the college golf market has been tremendous (due in large part to the free trial they are offering college golf coaches through this June). And as coaches begin to use MySmartGolf’s interactive website with their players, they’re noticing something that they weren’t expecting: How easy it is to use.
“It only takes 10 to 15 minutes to set up your team’s account,” explains Schneider. “If you have not tracked stats before it might take a round to understand what exact information you need to record. After a coach and his or her players get used to the system, it should only take them about ten minutes to enter in their information.”
The end results that the players and coach get, however, are well worth the investment of a few minutes after a round. (Click here to view a sample of the type of report that a college golf coach can give his or her players by using the MySmartGolf.com technology).
“The MySmartGolf system is designed for round entry at the computer by the player,” says Schneider. “The round entry card is for the player to use to make notes during the round which can be referred to when entering rounds on the computer. But different teams and individuals do what works best for them.”
He adds that some players, particularly college players, remember all their shots and do not use the round entry card. One Pac-10 college team that has been using MySmartGolf for some time now has players fill out the round entry cards and then an assistant enters the rounds on the computer.
Curious about what makes MySmartGolf.com so popular with a growing number of college coaches? There’s still time to sign-up for their free trial, which will make it easy to evaluate during your Spring season.
“And”, says Schneider, “we’re really confident that a coach who tries it now is going to keep it as a part of their training arsenal once their 2010-2011 golf season starts.”
