World’s Great Teachers is an excellent addition to family-friendly range of content for LG Smart TV owners,” said Sung-mok Moon, director of Content Business Division of LG Electronics’ Smart Business Center. “More than a game, this app is a great example of how LG Smart TVs can actively engage viewers as a teaching tool, beyond just a viewing experience.”

The app includes 350 lessons from 25 of the world’s most renowned golf teachers, including Gold Digest’s number one instructor in the world, David Leadbetter, and LPGA legend Annika Sörenstam. The lessons are searchable by club-type, golfing ability or scenario,making it easy for users to target specific skills such as teeing off, putting or bunker play.

Employing the built-in camera[1] on LG’s premium Smart TVs, this feature will make it possible for players to visually compare their form with that of elite professional golf instructors. A fun and helpful training tool, World’s Greatest Teachers is a great way to stay active.

The app will be available via LG Game World in key markets such as the United States, Canada and Germany as well as other countries in North and South America, Europe and Asia starting in June.
