Own Your Golf Game (OYGG) is an online, subscription-based game improvement and custom lesson platform that helps to provide golfers of all abilities the tools necessary to improve play and lower scores.
What is ‘Own Your Golf Game?’
When I started this review, I truly thought this was another guy offering online lessons. I submit my swing video and he sends me some recommendations, end of story. ‘Own Your Golf Game’ proved me wrong and has expanded the virtual model to become a very different and unique platform that offers a complete guide to getting you better.
Essentially they’ve separated the platform into four categories – your swing videos and analysis, drills with score-able results to measure, a large library of improvement videos, and stat tracking software from actual rounds to measure greens-in-regulation, putts, etc. All of these categories combine and work together to make a helpful approach to improving your golf game. Being frank, the layout of the website can be a little hard to navigate at times and felt a little out of date. Once I got used to the navigation, however, it was a great improvement tool.
Swing Video and Instruction
Once I uploaded my swing videos, one of their pros evaluated it and then sent their feedback video. The video had the pro’s voice talking through my swing using a shared screen approach. He walked me through my results and gave insight into my swing and game.
The pro I worked with (Chase) communicated on what drills to do, what to work on, and directed me to specific videos on the site to check out. He followed up with me and had me working on specific drills. He even had me submit more videos as I progressed to check my improvements and evaluate other adjustments as necessary.
DID IT HELP?
Skills, Data-Tracker, and Video Library
This was a really unique part of the site and something I had not seen in one place. It’s not revolutionary but going through the drills gave me competitive practice and a purpose during range sessions.
The data-tracker was easy to setup and enter in fairways hit, putts per round, etc. Using my Arccos data [review HERE], I was easily able to transplant this information into the system. This also gave some concrete directional insight for the pro to recognize areas where I struggle and where I perform well.
The video library was a great tool to use in between being on the course. Of course, we can access millions of lesson and drills videos on YouTube and other platforms but using these videos in one library allows you to be consistent with the style and teaching direction of one coach and philosophy.
There are so many options when it comes to online lessons and videos that it can be a bit overwhelming. “Own Your Golf Game” is an all-inclusive buffet of everything you need to better your game. Access to a video library with a consistent coaching method, customized video analysis from the same teaching professional that created the videos, and a plethora of resources to improve your game.

It would be nice if you included what it costs in you review.

Did your game Improve? If so, how so.
Did you follow our trip to Bandon in July? Broke par for the first time ever. Career low 71.
Biggest key that I got from OYGG was getting less steep in the downswing. Kept from losing the ball right too often. As you can, results don’t lie.
How do you take a video of your swing? Do you go to a pro shop and pay them to video tape you?
There are many inexpensive tripods you can use with your phone or you can ask someone to film you on the range.
how long did it take for you to get feedback on your swing videos?
About 48 hours was the turnaround time I saw.
How long do you pay for, a year…Or till you feel you got swing right and cancel?
It’s a monthly subscription, and just like Netflix or Hulu, cancel anytime.
