Ambassadors Training Camp
See and experience the golf swing in a completely new way—and exponentially multiply the tools at your disposal—in the only intensive kinetics training camp offered by Golf Digest 50 Best Teacher Michael Jacobs.
The Jacobs3D Ambassador Program is the only way to truly get inside the cutting-edge research that is changing how golf is taught. Those who qualify for the program will have unlimited access to the Jacobs3D swing library and the ability to submit GEARs motion capture data from their students for Jacobs3D analysis. A compendium of research and practical applications from Jacobs3D ambassadors will be published every year, establishing ambassadors as thought leaders in golf teaching. Ambassadors will also be able to purchase any official Jacobs3D publications, videos and symposium passes for cost. Ambassadors will be listed on the Jacobs3D website.
