“I’m thrilled to partner with SwingU” said Breed. “SwingU gives me the ability to reach a huge audience of passionate golfers who want to have fun and play their best golf. The future of golf instruction is “mobile first.” I can’t wait to leverage their app technology to launch my own instruction platform for my fans and students.”
