Golf Channel Academy Magazine Debuts

Only all-instruction digital golf magazine launches with free trial for those who want to improve their games

(Orlando, Fla.)  - Golf’s only digital magazine dedicated to instruction launches today with content that shares expertise from the industry’s best teachers, supported by the Golf Channel Academy instructional brand.  For a limited time, Golf Channel Academy magazine is available free to any golfer who wants to play better, stay better and have more fun in the process.                                                      

The digital magazine launches with a cover story by Golf Channel Academy (GCA) lead coach Mitchell Spearman, who also appears today and tomorrow on Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive.”  The feature article teaches everyday golfers how to generate effortless power on their tee shots, which is the perfect way to kick off this new magazine designed to help power its readers to better games.

Also included in the premier issue is a frame-by-frame swing analysis of 2015 Masters and U.S. Open champion Jordan Spieth by GCA lead coach Jeff Ritter, including a bonus video tip on Spieth’s “signature power move.” Other stories offer help for escaping from fairway bunkers, mastering the dreaded 60-yard wedge shot, and videos—clickable directly from the magazine’s pages— on developing a feel for distance in putting, and attacking front and back pin locations.

Initially, Golf Channel Academy magazine will be published monthly and will be available with a free-trial subscription by signing up at

Golf Channel Academy magazine is the only digital publication devoted exclusively to golf instruction. Each issue will feature a wide variety of articles, authored by GCA coaches who have brought their teaching academies and facilities under the GCA umbrella.

Along with articles to help readers play better, Golf Channel Academy magazine will  explore the latest trends in equipment, technology, fitness, and nutrition. This unique 360-degree approach to improvement reinforces GCA’s commitment to golf “coaching” and playing the game, not just hitting shots. Other articles that help differentiate GCA magazine from other golf publications will focus on how to practice more efficiently, prepare for “major” competitions, warm up properly, and keep cool under pressure.

Each issue also will include articles on how to elevate your performance on the course, lessons from Hall-of-Fame players and coaches, and a Q&A giving readers an opportunity to ask GCA coaches specific questions about their game.

Note: Golf Channel Academy magazine is presently only available for viewing on a computer. Platforms for tablets and smartphones will soon be introduced.
