When it comes to hitting a golf shot, improving your skills can be difficult and expensive. On today’s Up To Speed, hosts Andy Choi and Matt Fiedler find an exciting new way for all of us to elevate our game, whether it’s on the fairway or in a variety of other sports.

Thanks to the AR Pro Interactive app, which is available on the Google Play store and App store, top athletes can now be your personal coach using augmented reality to change the game. You can learn from the pros and compare your form to theirs to improve technique. The app leverages Volumetric Capture to deliver immersive learning experiences, exciting content and unique, shareable social moments.

Even better, PGA star Tony Finau is making sure this golf training app is built right. Tony took some time to talk to Andy about this awesome technology, and joining the conversation was one of Tony’s favorite Pro-Am playing partners, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg!

“I get so excited about this. We knew sports would be one of the first applications of 5G,” said Hans. “This app is a great way to get so much closer to the sports you love.”

Fans are about to hear a lot about Verizon’s strategy during this week’s U.S. Open. The latest in our 5G Built Right campaign includes a spot about Verizon’s crucial role in making businesses safer. Throughout the tournament broadcast, you’ll see five spots that highlight how only Verizon is building 5G right, demonstrating the relentless passion and pursuit of our engineers. Like the campaign says: “It’s us pushing us. It’s Verizon versus Verizon. And who wins? You.”

If you’d like to hear a simple but powerful tip from Tony on how to improve your golf game, or to learn more about what Tony thinks of Hans’ game, check out the full conversation between Hans, Tony and Andy.

Big thanks to Tony Finau and good luck at the Open this week.
