(FARMINGDALE, N.Y.) – The Golf Institute, an online learning site and app featuring more than six dozen of golf’s leading teachers, has created a series of weekly radio shows that air every Saturday morning and focus on various aspects of game improvement.
The Golf Institute Radio Shows are produced by Bethpage Black Director of Golf Kelley Brooke and feature some of the leading instructors on The Golf Institute roster. They can be heard on the Zindagi App via WLIE 540 am, or in the New York/New England region on WBWD 540 am.
“The radio shows are an extension of our TGI goal of offering a full menu of golf instruction from some of the best teachers in the game,” said Brooke, founder of TGI. “We will continue to grow the media aspect of TGI with more radio shows, TV shows and a magazine. We want to reach as many people as possible with our message – that golf can be learned conveniently on your own time and at your own pace.”
The current radio show lineup is as follows:
6:30- 7:00 AM: On the Move with Dr. Jeff Poplarski
7:00-7:30 AM: The Ladies Tee with Megan Younkman
7:30-8:00 AM: Little Sticks with Dan Frankel and Justin Koff
8:00-8:30 AM: The Anthony Scorcia Show
8:30-9:00 AM: Faults to Fixes with Kelley Brooke
The Golf Institute offers everything from quick tips, to a schedule of live classes, to on demand one-on-one lessons from golf instructors across the country. Some of the tips are free of charge. Other elements of The Golf Institute are pay as you go. Golfers can also subscribe for $19.95 monthly and take advantage of the hundreds of learning opportunities provided.
“During Covid we needed to pivot our ‘in-person’ golf program,” said Brooke. “The pros at Bethpage and I produced about 150 lectures, assignments, troubleshooting and homework videos and put them online. Then I recruited over 70 teaching professionals to join in. Many of them are award-winning instructors: Golf Digest Top 50, PGA Professionals of the Year, former Tour players, Solheim Cup captains. It’s an impressive list. Now we have over 240 free instruction videos on site.”
All aspects of golf are covered on the Golf Institute site, including fitness. You have general workout videos, as well as workouts geared toward specific areas of your game. You can learn what to eat and how to stay properly hydrated. You can become a better putter, a deadly wedge player, a superb shot-maker, and add distance to your tee ball. There are videos to elevate your mental game and ones to assist in course management. The options are nearly endless.
“This is truly one-stop shopping in regards to golf instruction,” said Brooke. “Beginners can find everything they need to eventually feel comfortable stepping onto a golf course. Mid- to high-handicappers have enough resources here to take strokes off their score. And advanced players can sharpen specific aspects of their games.”

- Live classes with award-winning golf professionals

“I would like for TGI to become the Peloton of golf, where we are bringing golf into people’s homes in a more affordable and efficient way,” said Brooke. “You don’t have to spend $150 an hour to learn golf. You can learn it on your own time and in the comfort of your own home, within your budget.”
