Leading performance brand becomes Title Sponsor of AJGA Preview Series
Braselton, GA – The American Junior Golf Association is proud to announce Neuropeak Pro as the Official Performance Training Company of the AJGA. The Official Partnership will include naming rights to the AJGA Preview Series as well as a social platform featuring insight on how to manage stress response under pressure. The ‘Coaches Corner’ will also receive a makeover, rebranding to the Neuropeak Pro College Coaches Corner.
Neuropeak Pro is a Precision Breathing, Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and brain performance training company that helps golfers manage stress and perform under pressure. Neuropeak Pro’s NTEL BELT is a real-time training device designed to align diaphragm-based performance breathing and HRV. The wearable Bluetooth device is positioned around the torso, while the mobile app and instructional videos guide users through training sessions designed to optimize an individual’s ability to respond to stress and unlock “zone-like” performance potential.
Precision Breathing and HRV training improves performance with a “bottom up” approach that helps sync the rhythm of the player’s heart with their breathing structure. The approach is backed by scientific evidence which demonstrates a connection between intentional breathing practices and management of the Autonomic Nervous System, which manages your body’s “fight-or-flight” and “rest-and-recovery” responses.
Neuropeak Pro is used by several AJGA alumni including Jordan Spieth and Morgan Pressel. In his junior career Jordan Spieth had five AJGA wins and earned 2009 Rolex Junior Player of the Year honors. Pressel had 10 AJGA wins and earned Rolex Junior Player of the Year honors in 2005.
“Neuropeak Pro is proud to be an AJGA partner”, said Neuropeak Pro Director of Golf Performance Andy Matthews, himself an AJGA alumni and former professional player. “We look forward to working with the AJGA to not only support its mission but to also help elevate the performance of AJGA Members on and off the course.”
The Neuropeak Pro Preview Series is designed specifically for AJGA members who have not yet been accepted to an AJGA tournament. This series offers members the opportunity to start building Performance Based Entry status before application deadlines arrive for summer Open and Ninja Junior All-Star Series events.
The 2022 Neuropeak Pro Preview Series will include three events; Mercy Health Foundation Preview, Windham Mountain Resort Preview and AJGA Preview at Carolina Trace. All staples of the annual schedule, the three host venues will provide a challenge to these first-time AJGA members.
“The AJGA is thrilled to bring Neuropeak Pro on board and elevate the performance training tools we offer to our membership,” said AJGA Chief Business Officer, Jason Etzen. “We are looking forward to boosting the Preview Series and creating unique experiences for our members with the support of Neuropeak Pro for years to come.”
The Preview Series has many notable past participants and champions who have used the Series to launch their junior golf careers. Names such as: Will Zalatoris, Alison Lee, Xander Schauffele, Brooke Henderson and Andrea Lee all started their AJGA and national junior golf careers through the Preview Series.
