PHOENIX, April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Shotzoom® (www.shotzoom.com), the leader in active lifestyle mobile applications, and Paul Azinger, PGA Pro and victorious Ryder Cup Captain, today announced an in-app purchase to Golfplan with Paul Azinger, the best-selling golf instructional app in the world. Available for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the updated app now includes 28 new instructional videos by Azinger to help amateur golfers practice at home or in the office. Golfplan integrates with the world's largest active golf community, Golfshot.com, where members share, compare and chart their golf game statistics, generate customized training plans and receive detailed insight into their performance over time.
"I've spent thirty years touring and most golfers don't have a good caddie, statistical charting and expert coaching," said Azinger. "Golfplan, along with stats kept from Golfshot GPS, offers personalized tips, coaching and drills golfers need to take their game to the next level. And with this update, not getting to the course isn't an excuse to not practice – rain or shine, anyone can practice with a purpose from their home or office with this app."
Amongst the 28 new tutorial videos, Azinger demonstrates proper swing path, ways to create lag and proper weight transfer drills. Based on the user's handicap and Golfshot statistics, Golfplan provides personalized instruction plans to help every golfer improve their game – from shaving strokes off their short game to adding a few extra yards to their tee shot.
"Our apps provide instruction as well as performance statistics that let members track their progress over time and compare results with others," said Craig Prichard, president of Shotzoom. "The integration with our Golfshot community brings members into a network of highly engaged users with similar interests."
