I’m really excited to announce that I’m partnering with AT&T as an #ATTBLOGGER for the next month bringing information to you about the #ATTPROAM. What is the #ATTPROAM you might ask? The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is a famous golf tournament but it’s also an experience that raises money for charity. Golf Pros, Hollywood celebrities and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs play together to raise millions of dollars in donations. Some familiar names that will be attending are Billy Murray, Don Cheadle, Jake Owen, Josh Duhamel, Andy Garcia, Chris O’Donnell, Kelly Slater and many others. AT&T is also sending a Foursome who will be able to watch as these celebrities take the course!
AT&T has enhanced the tournament for 30 years and is celebrating by giving a personal look to four golf fans. The foursome will be sharing their journey and “Fan’s Eye View” at the #ATTPROAM. The Foursome is comprised of: Tim Lang- Military Veteran, Katie Horsford-First Tee Mentor, Dan McLaughlin of The Dan Plan and Tiffany Fitzgerald of Black Girls Golf. For all of the fans who couldn’t make it out this year, this Foursome is sharing a first-hand look of all the unique things that make this tournament one of a kind. They will utilize the AT&T Network and HTC devices to document their journey and share via their social properties.
These four fans get to do some really amazing things as part of their experience. So look out for their experiences on the Hashtag #ATTPROAM the things you might see will be:
• Attend a charitable event for the Veteran’s Transition Center of Monterey County
• Play in the Boys & Girls Club Pro-AM
• Pay a visit to the Golf Academy to experience new technology including:
o Video Swing Analysis with Laird Small, Director of the Pebble Beach Golf Academy. Pebble Beach Golf Academy uses the V-1 Digital Coaching System swing analysis featuring state-of-the-art teaching and swing comparison capabilities. The V-1 Digital Coaching System also allows you to view your swing online with complete analysis and instructor comments.
o Robotic Swing Trainer with Scot Nei, widely recognized as one of golf’s most innovative instructors
Taking swing instruction and implementation to a whole new level, this revolutionary technology lets a student feel and duplicate the perfect swing. A Pebble Beach Golf Academy professional will be able to quickly diagnose your most significant swing flaws, and then calibrate the Golf Robot to allow you to experience what a correct swing should feel like. This is the most advanced and effective golf improvement technology in the industry.
o Science and Motion PuttLab with Kevin Hanssen, PGA Member and the Lead Instructor at the Pebble Beach Golf Academy.
This analysis and training system is based on accurate ultrasound measurements, using 28 parameters of the putting stroke.
o Full Swing Instruction with Dan Pasquariello, selected by Golf Magazine as one of its “100 Best Teachers in America” in 2011/2012
• Walk the course with the Pebble Beach Historian
• Watch the 3M Celebrity Challenge from AT&T’s Sky Box
• Meet & Greet with pro golfer, Jordan Spieth
• One on One swing lesson
• Have the exclusive opportunity to watch the tournament from inside the ropes
• Tee off on the iconic Pebble Beach course
I would love to see some of the training technology and have swing lessons and watch the game from inside the ropes. I really feel all sports are better on site than on TV. Social media brings an interesting aspect to the game too and I’m looking forward to sharing things with you this month as well. So keep watch!
