New. Live. Social.
The new one-hour Lesson Tee Live instruction series will give avid golfers the opportunity to be a ‘social student’ of the show by utilizing social media and technology platforms to connect with the leading teaching professionals in the game. When? Wednesdays at 8PM ET on Golf Channel.
A rotation of PGA professionals and golf instructors will appear on the show providing viewers with swing tips and feedback on every aspect of their game, with viewers being encouraged to send their questions through Twitter, Facebook & Instagram -- which will act as the driving force behind the rundown of each episode.
