Arkansas First Tee Chapters Receive AT&T Donation

AT&T donated a total of 30 Swingbytes to The First Tee programs in Central Arkansas, Fort Smith and Northwest Arkansas on Tuesday.

The Swingbyte is a 3D golf swing analyzer that can be attached to a golf club shaft. By connecting the device to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth technology, users can receive in-depth golf swing analysis that can be used to improve the user’s swing.
The Swingbyte donation from AT&T will provide The First Tee programs the capability to reach all the young golfers served in their programs.
The First Tee provides young people with character-building and life skills lessons using golf as the platform. Through The First Tee, young people discover how skills essential to success on a golf course can also help them flourish in life.
“The First Tee of Central Arkansas is excited to partner with AT&T to bring the Swingbyte to the youth we serve,” said Cory Biggs, executive director of The First Tee of Central Arkansas. “This great, new product will benefit countless young people as we incorporate it into our curriculum to make golf more fun and interactive. Together with AT&T, we at The First Tee are accomplishing our mission of using the game of golf to help kids stay healthy, graduate from high school, and grow into tomorrow’s leaders.”
Scott Wottle, AT&T Arkansas director of sales added: “Advances in mobile technology have brought about a new era of learning, and the Swingbyte is a perfect device for the coaches at The First Tee to use while working with the young golfers they teach. We are proud to support this organization and its worthy mission. The First Tee cultivates leadership skills that will carry these young people not just through a round of golf, but throughout the course of life.”
