Expert Instruction from Kevin Sprecher on Perfect Motion

Director of instruction at the renowned Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Briarcliff Manor and Top 100 Teacher Kevin Sprecher is the latest highly-regarded golf instructor to join the A.I.-powered PerfectMotion® platform that teaches golfers to groove better body motion with instant feedback and expert instruction on every swing.

“Kevin Sprecher is one of the brightest and most respected teachers in the game today,” says PerfectMotion CEO Rich Kosowsky. “To be able to exchange ideas with Kevin is incredibly valuable for our team in the evolution of the app, and to have his instructional videos on the PerfectMotion® platform is hugely beneficial to our users.”

Any golfer can download the PerfectMotion® game improvement app and choose Sprecher as their personal coach for free. Then, as they take swings, the app’s artificial intelligence pinpoints motion faults and automatically provides Sprecher’s custom instructional videos to correct the issue. Users can also choose to opt into personalized remote coaching with Sprecher to speed the improvement of their games. More in-depth coaching comes with a moderately-priced monthly subscription.

“PerfectMotion® is a great learning tool for golfers. When fellow top instructor Brian Lebedevitch showed me PerfectMotion® for the first time, I immediately liked how it accurately tracks body motion and provides instant feedback. The technology doesn’t try to be your teacher. It just tells you what you’re doing wrong and gives you a way to fix it with the instructor of your choice,” Sprecher says.

BIOLYTE®, the IV in a bottle

Biolyte, is the world’s first liquid supplement to offer the same benefits of IV rehydration therapy in a drinkable form. It’s the perfect thirst quencher and natural energy boost for golfers who need to stay hydrated during a round in order to play their best. Drinking just one bottle of Biolyte is the equivalent to consuming 7.5 sports drinks but with one third the sugar and only 40 calories. 

“Golfers oftentimes forget how easy it is to become dehydrated while playing,” says Dr. Luther Rollins, the Board Certified Anesthesiologist and Pain Specialist practicing in Atlanta who created Biolyte.  “Being on the golf course for 4-5 hours can significantly decrease your electrolyte levels, which can lead to fatigue, nausea, and sluggishness.” 

Biolyte can be found in major grocery chains, as well as online at Amazon.  For more information, visit www.drinkbiolyte.com.
