SwingU, the golf technology and media company, announced today that Dr. Joe Parent, performance psychology expert, PGA Tour sports psychologist, golf instructor, and SwingU Master Faculty member, has launched the ZEN GOLF® app in partnership with SwingU Academies.
Known for his Values-Based Mindfulness™ approach and The PAR System™ methods, Dr. Joe has trained hundreds of winners at every level of the game. In a coaching career that spans 40 years, Dr. Joe has the singular distinction of coaching both a man (Vijay Singh) and a woman (Cristie Kerr) to #1 in the World Golf Rankings.
Dr. Joe’s books have sold over one million copies in print, digital and audio formats worldwide in ten different languages, including his masterwork, ZEN GOLF: Mastering the Mental Game, the #1 best-selling golf mental game book of the century.
One of Golf Digest’s “Top-10 Mental Game Experts In The World,” Dr. Parent graduated summa cum laude from Cornell University and received a National Institutes of Health fellowship at the University of Colorado to complete his Ph.D. in Social Psychology. He also trained with many of the great meditation masters in the Zen and Tibetan traditions of the past century.
For $24.99 per month or $199.99 per year, the ZEN GOLF® app will provide students with an engaging experience, including access to all of Dr. Joe’s extensive and evolving audio and video content, an interactive forum where both students and Dr. Joe will share stories, video, audio, questions and answers on everything related to golf’s mental game. A special feature of the ZEN GOLF® app will be the availability of custom-design playlists of audio material for students to listen to on the way to the course for ideal preparation for their rounds.
