With four PGA Tour victories under his belt and $30,000,000 (USD) in tour winnings in the bank you’d forgive American golfer Rickie Fowler for maybe just concentrating on the aspects of his own game and keep the success rolling. However, the Florida based star has no intentions of doing so. In fact, he’s rather keen on helping you do better instead.
Earlier this week it was reported that Fowler is working to develop a VR golf coaching platform with Success Co., a Los Angeles based firm best known for their Success Series VR Player – on which various lessons in 360 degree video can already be found. The growing library of lessons, geared towards players of all ages, will range in price between $4.99 and $6.99.
Fowler explained what was going on to Fox Sports earlier in the week: “It’s pretty cool, with the virtual reality, I could be standing in a bunker and it feels like you’re standing right next to me.”
For CEO of Success Co. Anthony Puntoriero, teaming up with Fowler was a no-brainer for the company. “Rickie was the only golfer we wanted to target for Success Series and that is because of who he is on and off the course. Rickie’s brand and character has defined the new era of golfer and he is the ideal ambassador to take golf into the homes of sports fans globally. His message is infectious and he has genuine passion for helping people get better at the game.”
