IJGA Celebrates One Year with Power Tee
January 2019 will mark the one-year partnership with International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA): Top Junior Golf Academy in South Carolina and Power Tee.
IJGA is the oldest, independent junior golf academy in the nation, with over 2,000 alumni and nearly a 100% college placement rate with students earning over $51 million in scholarships.
Jonathan Yarwood, Director of Golf at IJGA and PGA Master Professional, said “We started using Power Tee at IJGA, our Full-Time Junior Golf Academy in South Carolina. People are impressed as soon as they see them. Power Tee is a great talking point, but also functional and presents a professional image here at IJGA.”
This academy features all the latest technology to improve your game. The performance studio, houses the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate (IJGA is only one of two junior golf academies in the world to feature this technology). The performance studio also features an indoor hitting bay with the latest technology including V1 video, TrackMan, BodiTrak, golf simulators and Power Tee. A large indoor chipping, pitching and putting green is also found here. The green is big enough to accommodate multiple students with flat and undulating surfaces and the ability to receive pitch and chip shots with live ball flight.
You can also find a performance training fitness center, the fuel-dining hall, par-3 challenge course, the learning center and the Himalayas, a short game performance training built for building short game confidence.
Owner of IJGA, Andrew Summers said, “In renovating a 20,000 sq. ft. horse barn into a state of the art Golf Performance Center, we wished to equip it with the latest in golf technology. Power Tees were an obvious addition for the five hitting bays, into previous horse stalls, and our studio with Swing Catalyst force plates and Trackman technology all make our Performance Center the finest indoor golf training facility in any junior golf academy!”
Power Tee is excited to be a part of this amazing academy and looks forward to many more years together. When asked, do you have any advice for hesitant ranges/academies that want Power Tee but are not sure if it’s right for them? Yarwood replied, “It’s a great product and can separate you from the competition.”
